Sibel Edmonds vs Glenn Greenwald regarding Snowden NSA Leaks

Comment: I'll be the first to say that the Greenwald / Snowden stories have been "inspiring." Greenwald is a great orator and knows how to argue a point. Sometimes I've been cheer-leading along with the rest of the alternative media. However... What kept coming back to me right at the beginning, is why was Snowden splashed over almost every mainstream media from the outset? Shouldn't that give pause right at the start? That simply doesn't happen with genuine whistleblowers.
As Edmonds mentions, why is Greenwald making millions from book deals with corporate anti-whistleblower and NSA-loving Pay Pal after spending so many years attacking corporatism? Seems like Greenwald loves the greenback more than anything else...

And Snowden? Well, his role in all this looks more and more suspect.

The Panopticon mythos indeed. Is this just one big PSYOPS against whistleblowing? 

Now, contrast this with Greenwald's "inspiring" speech that hackers are getting excited about: Glenn Greenwald Keynote 30c3
