I certainly hope he's not considering it all done ..but it does sound like it by his words in your link. (sigh)
“For me, in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission’s already accomplished,” he said. “I already won. As soon as the journalists were
able to work, everything that I had been trying to do was validated. Because, remember, I didn’t want to change society. I wanted to give society a
chance to determine if it should change itself.”
“All I wanted was for the public to be able to have a say in how they are governed,” he said. “That is a milestone we left a long time ago.
Right now, all we are looking at are stretch goals.”
Nawww.. tell me the damage done to United States National Security wasn't all just to start a public debate? No.. it can't have all been for nothing
more... Well, I guess it could be. He just stated it, himself.
This is the tally I'm more closely following while sitting on the fence for thinking of him as a traitor I won't mind seen the hunters catch some
day ...or a reluctant victim of circumstance trying to do the right thing.
The info is from Cryptome. They've been running a tally on this for quite awhile now, for those interested in keeping score and how many generations
will wait to see it all.
24 December 2013. Add 2 pages to Washington Post. Tally now 799 pages (~1.4%) of reported 58,000. NSA head claims 200,000 (~.40% of that
That's the latest update with the estimate here for time at this rate, and using the lower 50,000+ number for docs in play right now.
13 December 2013. Add 26 pages to Trojkan (SVT). Tally now 797 pages (~1.4%) of reported 58,000. NSA head claims 200,000 (~.40% of that released).
Australia press reports "up to 20,000 Aussie files."
Rate of release over 6 months, 132.8 pages per month, equals 436 months to release 58,000, or 36.3 years. Thus the period of release has decreased in
the past month from 42 years.
This is kind of a running feature they've had with new messages on a regular basis. Within that is also a chart showing by document count, which
outlets have released and how many pages.
If this was all about 1% document release ..and seemingly the 1% we already knew about in things like PRISM but just hadn't seen proof of? Well..
This was just wrong, IMO. If it stops here. This was very wrong.
