    New leaker disclosing U.S. secrets, government concludes

    (CNN) -- The federal government has concluded there's a new leaker exposing national security documents in the aftermath of surveillance disclosures by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden,U.S. officials tell CNN.
    Proof of the newest leak comes from national security documents that formed the basis of a news story published Tuesday by the Intercept, the news site launched by Glenn Greenwald, who also published Snowden's leaks.

    The Intercept article focuses on the growth in U.S. government databases of known or suspected terrorist names during the Obama administration.

    This is a good trend.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I hope it all gets exposed. I think as untrustworthy the government is the only thing they should be allowed to keep secret are troop movements during a time of war.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Glenn Greenwald is smart, and unlike the Julian Assange, he has the sense to mostly stay in a country that won't lock him an embassy, and doesn't seem to have indiscriminate sex with strangers that could get him detained.

    I wonder if they'll find the leaker before he has a chance to flee.

    The leak found that around 40% of those on the terrorist watch list had no connections to any recognized terrorist group.

    US terrorist watchlist contains 280k people with no terrorist affiliations

    Let me first say that I support Snowden. The government spying on its own citizens is disgusting and despicable. However, I can tell you with certainty that your statement is incorrect. Much of the information that is classified is strategic in nature and revealing it could severely compromise our ability to effectively defend our nation.

    Glenn Greenwald, and the Guardian have had teams of attorneys pouring over the documents to insure that that doesn't happen, redacting anything that would compromise US national security.

    I'm not talking about Snowden's docs. I am talking about intel in general. There is lots of stuff to which people have access which, in the wrong hands, could spell disaster for our country.

    I could care less what the government claims is necessary to keep secret in order to defend our nation. The fact is the government abuses that ability to keep things secret and as such they should be denied that privilege except for troop movement during a time of war(actual war not this war on terror bull ****)
