17. I believe some were/are paid trolls used to divert attention from the actual spying and

The story quickly focused on Snowden and away from the spying, it was pretty clear to those who bother to think. Because we allowed the narrative to change we all but guaranteed to quash future whistle blowers from blowing the whistle.
