How Snowden did it, NSA Eyes Wide Shut

Merely confirmation of what I said before --

How Snowden did it - Investigations: "When Edward Snowden stole the crown jewels of the National Security Agency, he didn’t need to use any sophisticated devices or software or go around any computer firewall. All he needed, said multiple intelligence community sources, was a few thumb drives and the willingness to exploit a gaping hole in an antiquated security system to rummage at will through the NSA’s servers and take 20,000 documents without leaving a trace. “It’s 2013 and the NSA is stuck in 2003 technology,” said an intelligence official. . . ."

Billions and billions of dollars wasted on the NSA and its lame contractors in the last 10 years, but I guess if you're going to have a government agency trashing the Fourth Amendment (with no accountability, nor oversight, and complete with secret rubber-stamp Courts) and spying on all Americans, it is better to have an incompetent agency than a competent one. And at this point, it is obvious the only oversight being given to agencies like the NSA is for whistleblowers like Snowden to come forward. Thank you Edward Snowden --  not only did you expose the Constitutional violations of the NSA, you also exposed how inept and incompetent the NSA truly is!
