	if they did, that's one of the very few things they deserve credit for.

	"the cunt was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal for "aiding in 650 enemy
 captures, 600 enemies killed in action and identifying 900 high[-]value targets"." 

	do you understand what that means no? How are you proposing that the cunt pay for her crimes?

	pseudo-feminist? Not at all. They all are true feminists and they all are feminazis. Those two words are synonymous.

	he gave copies to different journos apart from greenwald I believe?

	played how? snowden constantly parrots that journos have the divine right to filter whatever information reaches the serfs.

	did he promise that? That doesn't sound realistic given the fact that snowden supports censorship-by-journo.

	well no doubt greenwald is a sellout, and no doubt his employer ebay-paypal has been working for the NSA since day one. As a funny side note, NSA contractor ebay is 3 years older than google.

	Regardless, I believe/would assume that snowden gave the docs to different redundant  parties because 'trusting' a single guy like greenwald is pretty stupid, and snowden is anything but stupid.

	yeah. Not sure if snowden contributed to that or it's just that his leak was useless in the grand scheme of things.

	True - that is a possible and lilely scenario.

	Not sure what the point of publishing the key later is, especially if you first published some stuff in the clear? When you publish stuff in the clear you are marking yourself as a target? 

	The two steps process is to avoid getting caught while uploading the bulk of the data?
