Snowden leaks crippled war on terror

Edward Snowden’s intelligence leaks have crippled Britain’s ability to fight terrorists, a major study confirms today.

Extremists, including those from Islamic State, have seized on the fugitive traitor’s revelations and now use them to learn about spy agencies’ techniques – making it easier for them to avoid detection, the report says.

Snowden’s theft of 1.7million classified files from GCHQ and the US’s National Security Agency has therefore had a ‘profound impact’ on the agencies’ ability to tackle jihadists.

    Rubbish! First talking about a war on terrorism is ridiculous. Islam are at war with us and terrorism is just one of their strategies. Second you have already surrendered by refusing to close the flood gates on the enemy and worse you prosecute your citizens if they dare state the truth about the enemy. This is not a defence of Snowden, but I am fed up with the lies and blame game by those who refuse to do their job and to put their country and citizens first.

      Absolutely correct.

      Not disagreeing with you. Just adding that a system that doesn’t properly vet and continually monitor those in sensitive positions is just asking for trouble, why some day we might even have to worry about the inhabitants of the White House, …ahem.

    • All true Alain.

      A recent Sultan Knish column is written around similar thinking. These countries need to be de-Islamized not democratized.

      You can’t cripple something that is not there: there is no political will and strength to fight terrorism. Europe is doomed.

    It would be terrible if Mr. Snowden were to have a fatal accident.

      He’d be really missed. /sarc

        What was his name again?

  • One might forgive me if I doubt Britain was ever serious about destroying threats from within.

    • Shebel

      Another might agree with you.

      • I have not seen evidence of it.

        I think Snowden here is a useful distraction.

    I can understand being in a position where you completely disagree with what you have to do. But in the position he held you don’t respond by betraying your people and your country. I hope he is hanged.

    Every time I look a a pic of this Cult bowing down with their smelly arses in the air—
    It males me both sick and scared.
    Watching this unfold is like watching a 6 season sci-fi movie.
    ‘Cept it is real. It is happening so fast.
    WE are all fekked.
