But anyway no surprise is there it is more or less already known information. They could as well have made it even more clear to avoid such a thing happening.

Either way Snowden is in the wrong, if you are working in a government function and sign papers to keep secrets for the good of the nation ( same thing appears for some of the wikileaks ). Sometimes there is a reason that something is KEPT secret, and the boss might not tell you in detail why, and revealing this could endanger a lot of people. He should have found another method for what he wanted to do.
Yeah I don't use those partially for that reason and partly because they seem aimed at teenage girls. The fact it has taken root at all ages and walks of life is disturbing in its own right.

I'm sure you'll find that they compiled this list by taking people they don't like, adding their facebook friends, and their friend's friends as well. There was already a similar scandal about that kind of guilt by association. But how ridiculous is that?

Especially since the root cause is likely they were at some kind of protest or are in a union. Of course now there are paid activists too, but they are exempt they put out the messages that various interest groups WANT out there, not the ones they DON'T want - the guys putting those out go on a list for concentration camps.

These guys making these plans should get jail time.
