So, is this the NSA trying to makes us feel better?
Turns out Eric Snowden didn't have access to all the secrets he stole. He pretended to be someone else. By using a different person's profile.
The fact that double-super-secret-spys' access is defined by a profile that any old Sys Admin can spoof doesn't make me feel better.
FYI -It should be harder to get our nations secrets that it is to use someone else's ATM card.
