Perhaps we are getting to the real juicy bit of Edward Snowden’s knowledge, perhaps he’s dangling some bait and posturing, but he has given new details about something that many already suspected is true: US conducts massive amounts of cyber-espionage in the world.
NSA alone, says Snowden, conducts 61,000 ops globally currently, and has been hacking into China (including HK) for years. For what purpose, who knows, there aren’t that many terrorist groups to go after. That can only mean that US is conducting cyber-espionage on pretty much every nation on Earth, with China on top of the list.
I won’t go into the details of what this revelation means. I’ll let you all just think about it.
