The Cost and Responsibility for Snowden's Breaches
Silicon Babble: "Focusing on Snowden has people asking 'How safe are my secrets from the NSA?' when a more pertinent question might be 'Is my bank still safe from the eastern block mafia and the terrorist of the month?' Banks for the most part don't operate by storing dollar bills; they operate electronically. Then there is the power delivery infrastructure, or... the list goes on. That is what NSA compromised. And when you understand that, it becomes clear that the damage to us was far worse than any cost to the terrorists."
