Catherine Ann Fitzpatrick announces:
Rather, I use the term “Snowden Hack” instead, and even indicate there’s a movement directed precisely toward the Snowden Hack because I think that’s how it works more cunningly and more indirectly: that anarchist coders, some of whom have colluded with Russian or other hostile intelligence, wittingly or through “false flag” operations, have planned and executed and assisted this NSA hack over a period of time.
Speaking of false flag operations….
