The US is Still in the Dark on the Extent of Snowden’s Data Cache

Following on from my previous post, the New York Times reports that after six months of investigation US intelligence and law enforcement investigators still don’t know the full extent of the data Edward Snowden took from the NSA:

“They’ve spent hundreds and hundreds of man-hours trying to reconstruct everything he has gotten, and they still don’t know all of what he took,” a senior administration official said. “I know that seems crazy, but everything with this is crazy.”

Closer to home, the Weekend Australian argues today that the outrage over revelations, via Snowden, of Australia’s bugging of the personal mobile phone of Indonesian PM Susilo Bambang Yudhyono’s wife, Kristiani Herawati, was misplaced: Herawati should not be seen as politically passive, but as one of SBY’s closest advisers.
