Excellent reminder those who claim to know, don't. Or won't tell all 
they know, just enough
to build a reputation of responsibility. This applies to Snowden's 
team of "responsible"
releases of a tiny fraction of the full dump Snowden says he gave to 
the public, then was
hi-jacked in transit, most of it in private storage to enhance its 
value of restricted access.
Meanwhile, replacment spy tools are being developed in order that 
Snowden's gift can
be dimissed as nonsense -- a process well underway: NSA head now 
claims that the
Snowden material was not as damaging to natsec as first alleged. 
Could be psyop to
hide the damage, or indicates new means and methods are coming along just fine.
