How Snowden helped terror groups

At least three terror groups plotting attacks against Britain have changed their communication methods since the leaks by Edward Snowden, it was claimed last night.

The Al Qaeda-linked networks have altered their tactics since the fugitive stole intelligence files from GCHQ and the US National Security Agency, according to a report.

Extremist websites have also moved to protect their digital communications by releasing encryption programmes for followers, making it harder for extremists to be tracked down.

    Another SJW intent on their personal (Look at me! Look at me!) principles with no thought to actual consequences.

    • He is a traitor.

        There is no doubt. There is plenty of justification for someone to expose a government that tramples on the freedom of its citizens and abuses its power, but there is never any justification for putting one’s own citizens in danger and aiding and abetting the enemy. That is a line that should not be crossed, and it used to common sense as in seeing the difference between right and wrong. We have far too many infected by cultural marxism and have no moral compass. Some of the most guilty of doing much the same are our MSM and some political parties and politicians.

          Well said.

        • Snowden works for the Russians.

    Snowden needs to be doing about 800 years in Florence ADX.

    • Yea, he is no hero

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        No he’s not a hero in any sense of the word.
        I have for a while now felt that he was part of a coordinated FSB program that not only collects intelligence, but exposes American intelligence operations to reduce cooperation with foreign intelligence entities as that might put them at risk of future exposure.

      Yeh, US traitors are not hanged …

        I would absolutely sign on to Snowden being executed, Bradley Manning too!

            I don’t care if he wants to be called “Rainbow Bright” that doesn’t make him a magic flying pony either.

    Snowden also helped out corporate media. Here is a paragraph lifted from the Wiki entry on Snowden:

    “On May 20, 2013, Snowden flew to Hong Kong,[5] where he was staying when the initial articles based on the leaked documents were published,[127] beginning with The Guardian on June 5.[128] Within months, documents had been obtained and published by media outlets worldwide, most notably The Guardian (Britain), Der Spiegel (Germany), The Washington Post and The New York Times (U.S.), O Globo (Brazil), Le Monde (France), and similar outlets in Sweden, Canada, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Australia.[129] In 2014, NBC broke its first story based on the leaked documents.[130] In February 2014, for reporting based on Snowden’s leaks, journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, Barton Gellman and The Guardian′s Ewen MacAskill were honored as co-recipients of the 2013 George Polk Award, which they dedicated to Snowden.[131] The NSA reporting by these journalists also earned The Guardian and The Washington Post the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service[132] for exposing the ‘widespread surveillance’ and for helping to spark a ‘huge public debate about the extent of the government’s spying’. The Guardian’s chief editor, Alan Rusbridger, credited Snowden, saying ‘The public service in this award is significant because Snowden performed a public service.'[133]”.

    So the Guardian, the New York Times and CBC News, and others, reaped good corporate profits, in assisting in Snowden’s treason, and support for terror groups. They are all happy campers, these days, celebrating in helping war criminals.
