I found the logs on the USB before I posted about the GCHQ slide, that's
how I found the info. I verified that the data was also in coderman's
torrent from over a year ago. John rebuffed my initial inquiry and refused
to verify that the IPs I provided visited Cryptome at the times listed, and
then accused me of faking the data. So I released it for others to look at

As far as calling Snowden a liar, as I said in note #4 of the GCHQ post...

If the slide is a mockup, it could be an internal mockup produced by GCHQ,

a deliberate piece of disinformation from within or without GCHQ, a
document altered by Snowden, his friends/"friends" in Russia, or anyone
else in the chain of custody. *Given that Snowden didn't review all of
the documents he handed over, he might not recognize if one had been
altered, embellished, forged, or taken out of context prior to publication.*
Or it could be genuine - proving that something could be a fake isn't quite
the same as proving it's a fake.

Italics added.

Dude, are you calling Snowden liar?

And did you found out that allegedly cryptome shipped their web logs on
usbs to buyers AFTER you called Snowden liar?
