The British government believes that China and Russia have decrypted top secret files leaked by the former defense contractor Edward Snowden to identify certain Western intelligence personnel.
English officials believe that China and Russia have decrypted Snowden's files using special technological means.
According to The Guardian, the British spy agency M16 has recalled its spies posted abroad after a Russian security agency successfully decrypted files that were stored on Snowden’s computer.
Snowden once provided The Guardian with highly classified documents from the NSA implicating Western intelligence agencies’ monitoring of cellphone and internet use.
After fleeing Hong Kong and arriving in Moscow however, Snowden received temporary refuge in Russia. The BBC reported that by the time he had fled from the U.S., Snowden had already downloaded nearly 1.7 million secret files from the NSA.

1 - No supporting evidence this really happened. Special means? Please, be specific. 2 - Assuming it did, no guarantee the information obtained actually has any use. 3 - Assuming it does, it's been 2 years now, I'm sure the big guys already took measures to prepare this day. If they didn't, they're morons. 4 - the USA's spy network serves no purpose other than disrupting other countries internal affairs for... profit or stuff. This part the wumaos get right. It doesn't even serve the US people. So good fucking riddance and make no mistake I'd say the same for any existing spy network or classified documents. Secret services doing good things exists only on TV.

It was really suspicious, why US almost stopped the Earth from rotating, once 'Up-yours' landed in HK. Why in the world US would act with such a force, if snitch wasn't that valuable? OK, US Gov might just pretend, but they really didn't care since he didn't take anything of value. NSA guys are tricksters. Why he got such a flamboyant nick-name? 'Up-yours'? Any idea?

The Fourth Amendment disallows illegal searches. The NSA has "front door access" to all Google, Yahoo, etc email accounts. This would seem like an illegal search to me. The amendment was amended yet again in 2008 to allow the NSA to have access to all Americans' private affairs via access to their email accounts. People need to call their governments to account when they infringe upon personal freedom. I agree with what Snowden did.

The gift of "Up Yours" or as he's known on this forum by a certain somebody, just keeps on giving. I pretty much don't care if he had principles because all of his principles created consequences for others that were far worse than his personal principles. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see what happens with him as he loses his worth.

Snowden is an arsehole. I can forgive him and even understand him leaking files that showed his government spying on their own citizens. What I cannot forgive is him then selling military secrets to other countries. He may not have received money for them (although it is a possibility) but he did receive safe haven in exchange for them. That is treason and he should be punished accordingly.

His new name is 'Up-yours'. Please comply! Wasn't it NSA spying (on US citizens) against the US Constitution, the highest of the high US Laws? And 'merican citizen who made that public is a traitor? "BuTT....'Up-yours' hurt our pride." LOLOL Punished? Nominated for Oscar? Oh yeah, that was in Cali. Isn't that the same place, where they taped Armstrong's Moon descent? Or was it in Nevada? The 'moon movie'? I'm sorry, I read about it in Ruski RT. Can't find smileys her-oo.
