Should you blame Greenwald? Maybe, we should blame MTV and the 10 second sound bite for the current attention span problem... It may be that he just understands that we all have this deficit built in and he is working around it...
This is a detailed article about the drone program, how intelligence has changed from on location Intel with eyes on the ground to computer analysis and metadata for making targeting decisions.
Why is it we will arrest, charge and try members of our military who intentionally killed civilians in Iraq / Afghanistan while at the same time refuse to hold the same standard to those who are behind the drone strikes?
I have to ask... Is Greenwald and the rest ever planning to release what they are sitting on and hoarding for information ..or just trickle it out this way, at strategic moments, to do the most damage?

An anti-american's rant?
Is this about changing things or revenge and retribution? If these folks want to use what Snowden stole from this nation for change and positive things? GOOD... God knows we need change and reformation in the true sense among Intelligence and Military ...if not a whole lot more.
If it's just to play God with world events by tossing out specially timed leaks to really stick it to Uncle Sam whenever possible? I do hope he and those with him are captured and fnd out....painfully and over long years...what the Black Site program actually *IS* and what really happens to human beings who enter it. Few, if any come back out of it ...but that's fine too if this is his motivation at this stage. Harm...can be returned in kind and with interest. That's fine by me.
I'd still prefer change and that means releasing all of it ...not just what looks the most juicy for headlines that day.
