I trust Rogers, and through him, the NSA.
Agreed. That was a big part of realizing what Qanon is/was.
Here is Rogers talking about Snowden:
My take is Rogers clearly disagrees with what Snowden did. He implies that Snowden acted irrationally he doesn't believe he is a black hat. If Qanon says Snowden is a black hat I'm going with what Rogers said.
I've talked with these guys on line in there own forums over 10 years ago. I'm telling you they where desperate and strong believers in the 4th amendment online.
Snowden acting rash? Absolutely. Black hat no freaking way. I don't buy it and that is what changed my mind about Qanon.
