Watch Stephen Colbert lambast the NSA and Snowden at security conference | The Verge: "We can trust the NSA," explains Colbert, "because without a doubt it is history's most powerful, pervasive, sophisticated surveillance agency ever to be totally pwned by a 29-year-old with a thumb drive.""
The Crimea Blame Game Turns To Edward Snowden: "U.S. intelligence officials — in leaks to news organizations and quiet conversations in Washington — have begun to blame Edward Snowden for their failure to anticipate Russian aggression in Crimea. But several current and former intelligence officials said that the U.S. failure to see into Vladimir Putin’s plans is profound and long-running, and that there is little evidence that Snowden’s leaks allowed Russia to evade U.S. intelligence more effectively than it had already been doing...."
Oh yes, everything from hereon out is poor Edward's fault. Overnight the NSA and CIA and the rest of the US national intelligence [sic] bureaucracies became impotent and inept, full of intelligence failures, all due to (as Steven Colbert put it) being pwned by a 29-year-old with a thumb drive!
Better explanation of NSA, CIA, et al failures: extraordinary incompetence (see Peter Thiel say this of the NSA here).
