Seth's game theory is just a bunch of antagonism I will pursue the rest in private at leisure.

more correctly the original was privatized in order to avoid Seth's already, always antagonism & protect my sanity.

How many low-level  "analysts" does it take before a Snowden gets bored & goes to the media to gossip?

seems to me they have a bug in the orgainization.  the IT guys should not even have access the the mechinism they program.  once it is created and tested, during the implementation the IT analyst should not be given the passwords to decrypt the information.  access to that information should be on a need to know based upon the job being performed.  Snowden wasn't tasked in his job to actually operate on the information, was he?  so i look on this as a bug, , but i haven't heard much about actually fixing the bug.

The article doesn't say anything about the programmers.  The lower level people in the organization are analysts.  The bug is indeed access to the information without court authorization.

well seems to me that the court order does not give access to everyone who works for NSA.   to be practical it must be on a need to know because the accessor is involved in some investigation or prosecution.   does the court order grant access to a janitor who works directly for NSA?  i don't think so.
