Report: NSA doesn’t know the extent of Snowden damage.
Via Glenn Reynolds:
“The National Security Agency (NSA) doesn’t know how much information leaker Edward Snowden was able to obtain because of an underdeveloped capacity to audit its own data, according to a NBC News report released late Tuesday.”This is criminal. Every single thing he did should have left an audit trail, both as a guard against misuse, and for damage assessment in a case just like this....Disgraceful. The whole operation needs to be reviewed at the highest levels. Instead, we’re more likely to see some cosmetic fixes and promises that this was a one-off.
Glenn, you realize that "reviewed at the highest levels" means Team Obama's going to investigate itself, don't you? That's the problem, isn't it? Have the FBI check it out? The same FBI that still hasn't interviewed the Tea Party about being targeted by the IRS? Haven't you remarked that you can't be paranoid enough? Who will guard the guardians?
