FBI net closing on ‘Edward Snowden-style’ leaker of terror watch-lists

entire “categories” of people the government is tracking onto the no fly and selectee lists. It broadens the authority of government officials to
“nominate” people to the watchlists based on what is vaguely described as “fragmentary information.” It also allows for dead people to be

Whoever this new leaker is he has indeed been leaking sensitive top secret information… of course the types of information seem to be mostly policy
and revisions to rules, nothing nearly so explosive as the phone intercept deal Snowden blew the lid off of… but still, damaging in that it gives
the wrong people to much information on the inner working of NSA DHA, and other’s…

who ever this guy is in some deep doo-doo…. and I bet the TPTB keep his story and capture very quite.
