The chairman of the UK House Intelligence Committee is sure that Al Qaeda has changed the way it communicates after Edward Snowden’s leaks. He said that Edward disclosed classified data which has allowed 3 different terrorist organizations, affiliates of Al Qaeda, to change the way it communicates.
This statement was evidently referring to an intelligence analysis of the impact of the former NSA agent’s leaks. Snowden leaked to the press and to the foreign governments plenty of NSA files, along with descriptions of their surveillance programs.
So far intelligence officials have differed in their assessments of the damage done by the former contractor, with respect to the fight against terrorism and Al Qaeda in particular. For example, Matthew Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Centre, believes that al Qaeda has been adapting to the Snowden’s revelations, while others guess that the release of sensitive communications between Al Qaeda emir Ayman al Zawahri and his subordinates three months ago has done more damage.
The suspicion is that the terror group has been tracking the leaks of classified data very closely and must be thinking a lot of it. Some experts insist that Al Qaeda has changed the way it behaved after Osama bin Laden’s lair was raided.
Thousands of previously classified US intelligence reports from the battlefields of Afghanistan were found in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Either way it seems that the chairman of the UK House Intelligence Committee is trying to turn public opinion against Edward by pulling out an old bug-bear. At the moment, Edward Snowden leaks haven’t actually covered Al Qaeda, as they mostly deal with the National Security Agency snooping on its own citizens and allies.

|I don't know if I think he's a hero but... yeah, I guess I do. I'm not sure why people would assume he did things for nefarious purpose. I guess running off to Russia didn't help his case, but honestly, he didn't have a whole lot of places to go, and the US was all over any travel to the handful of south american countries that offered him asylum. Seems like the people who assume he's a traitor are the people who say they'd do the same traitorous things if they were in his shoes. I think Snowden loves America. I think he couldn't stand to see what was happening. And the only thing he had the power to do was what he did. And apparently the most shocking revelations haven't been released yet. I can't wait to see that....|

|Al Qaeda hasn't used electronic communications for years. Face to face exchanges and dead drops have been the norm for years. It wasn't that hard to figure out that there was a drone strike whenever someone high up in leadership made a phone call. This is just more disinformation to try and change public perception. Something good must be about to be released.|
|what a load of bull this has to be the goverment trying to turn people againsed him as really he done nothing wrong|
if someone is making a lot of dough he must be doing a good job according to american standards, right?

|"Snowden Tipped off Al Qaeda" What bullshit. Anyone who thinks he did it for personal gain must be crazy. Now he has got to watch his back for the rest of his life. Not the way I'd want to live never knowing if I will live to see another day.|
|@brods If you were going to sell the secrets, you wouldn't give them to journalists too. Then you wouldn't get paid as it would be public information. If you that was your game you would do sell the information anonymously and accept payment anonymously, and disappear with ha new identity in Jamaica or something.|
The fact is that even according to the bogus OBL raid narrative, they found Osama because he had no cell phone and it was considered suspicious. The fact is that most people in the public, let alone the Russians etc. knew about this. If you think that Al Ciada didn't know about this when movies like "Enemy Of The State" came out well over a decade ago, you're delusional.
Snowden exposed criminal activity. Namely a covert war being waged on the public(treason).
|So... wait.... ahhhh now I get it. Heroes are the ones that help CIA/NSA and their ilk spy on their own people and on their allies, but when these same "heroes" actually serve the public that at some point they swore to protect, they automagically become Al Qaida strawmen. Alright, gotcha, yeah, that's valid logic right there... now if someone can explain why I'm picturing the chairman of the UK House Intelligence Committee as one of those screaming alien bodysnatchers from the 1978 version of "Invasion of the body snatchers"...|

|What a lame attempt at justification.|
They should really get the NSA programmers to write these propaganda pieces, instead of doing it themselves. The coders are obviously pretty bright, something that cannot be said about the UK House Intelligence Committee. Losers!

|I have no shit to hide. If the government wants to read my texts or listen in my phone calls I dont care. Is everyone going to pretend as if we didnt know we are spied on. we all have known we have very limited privacy. why get butt hurt about it now. assange and his little douche bag boyfriends just want to cause problems.|
|So what you're saying @shasta68 is that you're basically saying We should all have been used to being Screw'd from behind and he's just trying to cause problems... how dare they complain about being Raped publicly!!! That is a huge problem, when people are so used to not having any real rights and are used to being violated to the point where that is what feels comfortable... People need to be stronger and smarter than this....The Future looks pretty Bleak at times.||
