Then — a mere eight-or-so hours later — someone with an IP address linked to the U.S. Senate, according to the Daily Mail, upped the verbal ante, surgically changing “dissident,” to the more inflammatory, “traitor.”

A search by FoxNews.com confirms the IP address links to a computer located on the 6th floor of 2 Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C., home to the U.S. Senate.

Exactly 1 minute later, according to Wikipedia’s publicly available revision history, a moderator named Ginsuloft changed Snowden’s all-important introductory description back to “dissident.”

In this case, Ginsuloft explained himself.

 “Hello, I’m Ginsuloft,” wrote the would-be editor/moderator on something referred to as a “talk page.”

“Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Edward Snowden seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message… Thank you.”
