So THAT's why he's still alive.

Spies worry over "doomsday" cache stashed by ex-NSA contractor Snowden
One source described the cache of still unpublished material as Snowden's "insurance policy" against arrest or physical harm.
U.S. officials and other sources said only a small proportion of the classified material Snowden downloaded during stints as a contract systems administrator for NSA has been made public. Some Obama Administration officials have said privately that Snowden downloaded enough material to fuel two more years of news stories.
"The worst is yet to come," said one former U.S. official who follows the investigation closely.

Well, we'll see. Since most of the data is being held by Glenn Greenwald, and he just quit the Guardian to start what's being touted as the next generation of investigative journalism reporting, by virtue of joining forces with other well known investigative journalists, in a $250mil publishing venture funded by the ebay/Paypay conglomerate founder, Pierre Omidyar.

However, lots of people are pissed about the drip drip drip of Greenwalds releases of Snowdens files, and given that Eric Holder just issued a statement saying he would not prosecute Greenwald..UNLESS other information regarding Greenwalds relationship to Snowden shows up, which could mean anything. This entire thing could blowup in Greenwalds face as Paypal was instrumental in the takedown of the Wikileaks donation transfer system, of which Greenwald made such a fuss about a couple of years ago, which to some observers, say will compromise Greenwalds reporting objectivity of his employers activities in other corporate spheres. Mainly..Microfunding..

That aside, given the extraordinary revelations so far, showing the NSA has been complicit in illegal mass surveillance of every human being on the planet by virtue of lying to Congress and manipulation of FISA court rulings, and the latest expose proving the FBI and other agencys have had access to NSA data, it wouldn't surprise me if there were documents showing blackmail, corporate use of financial surveillance data supplied to NSA corporate contractors like BoozAllen's umbrella owner..The Carlyle group which is one of the largest "investment" firms on the planet, and other things( like CIA complicity to overthrow other governments etc) that could literally expose the ruling class worldwide financial debauchery in collusion with the USG. However, I ain't holding my breath. I believe TPTB will do ANYTHING within their power to stop the REAL damaging revelations from occurring... ..including assassination of journalists or who ever. There is too much at stake for the Plutocracy. And given a "un-named USG official" has already said.."the worst is yet to come"..this tells me heads are exploding in WDC. In fact, at the onset of the revelations in June, the military expanded its "propaganda" arm 10 fold to marginalize each revelation as it occurred, and try they did...not to mention Feinstein/Rogers introducing new expansions of NSA power authorizations masquerading as "reform"..that is..until emptywheel(Marci Wheeler)exposed the truth. Thank you Marci Wheeler.
And then of course..we have Clappers.."least untruthful" lies to Congress..which was promptly swept under the Two Tiered Justice system rug while most of America simply yawned. Sad. No wonder this country is morally dead now.

Hmmmmmmm. There must be many tines many secured copies..... Probably at least a few hundred or hundred thousand "Cyber Bombs" loaded deep within infrastructure which get released say a million or so times when bad things happen.

I can see why they would be worried. I bet that the media is quite worried as well, as all traitors should be. Alternative media is a real bitch. I bet they have at least diddled a bit, in their pampers.

Maybe the fear is that he has Barry's records.

Couldn't agree more with commented who wrote above about .mil and non mil gov sock puppetry and social media propaganda staffel being expanded post Snowden leaks. A prof at the Naval War College John Schindler was leading this #TeamNSA TwitterSwarm (15,000 #NSA tweets by his own reckoning ir an average of 100 per day)until I and a few other folks finally filed some FOIAs and #HatchAct complaints regarding Schindler's lobbying against the Amash amendment on taxpayer time from his NWC offices. That, along with the exposing of his groupies as either authoritarian nutcases (like Catherine A. 'no more anonymity online, all individual encryption use is 'anarchist/terrorist/criminal because some Anons bullied me'' Fitzpatrick) or notorious libelers such as Charles 'Little Green Footbalks' Johnson.

However the longer this has gone on the more I realize Schindler is too stupid, vain and thin skinned (he constantly would provide my blog with traffic by linking to my Hatch Act complaint as 'tinfoilhat') to be anywhere close to being the brains behind #NSA's PR operations to defuse Snowden's revelations. And the man not only claims on his inflated resume to speak 11 languages, but also bragged in tweets that he participated in drone strike targeting.

Draw what conclusions from that which you will, my conclusion is that NSA's upper echelon prefers highly credentialed yes men, blowhards and hacks to genuinely clever analysts. On the positive side if NSA really is going to be DHS eyes and ears for Civil War 2, Big Sis's domestic army is going to be in big trouble.
