By now, with the long delay in releasing the Snowden documents,
NSA and cohorts have developed alternative tools based on survey
and analysis of what Snowden took (the 1.7M docs allegation). So
whatever countersmeasures citizens develop, however they satisfy
the delay-team and developers, will be out of date -- no official will
admit that, instead will continue bleating natsec harm.

This consequence was argued early in the document dripping to no
effect. Whether the delay and dripping was orchestrated in concert
with officials to allow time for new natsec tools, whether Snowden had
this in mind setting up the media release timetable "to minized harm
to the US," as also argued, is yet to be answered by the withholding
cartel and insiders regularly consulted.

Perhaps it will be answered in expected prosecutions, pardons, amnesties,
and civil suits, or by best-seller confessions in the works or being configured
by scholars of disclosures and their effect on policy, if any, beyond
newspaper and online superficialities in the spy novel genre heretofore
emulated by those covering Snowden melodramatically.

More FUD appears in the offing, if not Yellow Peril, Cold War or
Terrorism, then right here in our devious devices to which we are
tethered as goats awaiting raptors. Wait, that's just a movie, leave
the online security theater.
