bobbied (2522392) writes Apparently Edward Snowden is not alone. CNN is reporting that recent leaked documents published by The Intercept (a website that has been publishing Snowden's leaked documents) could not have been leaked by Snowden because they didn't exist prior to his fleeing the USA and he couldn't possibly have accessed them. Authorities are said to be looking for a new leaker.

    They just need an Operation Showerhead.

    Guys, it was me. I'm sorry, but I just can't keep a secret, which is why I revealed it, and why I had to tell you that Mrs. Jenkins across the street? The UPS man was parked there 45 minutes this morning, and he smiled coming out.

  • Hey, we told the IT guy to change the permissions on that folder to keep himself out. He must have been some kind of super-hacker to get past us...

    maybe, just maybe, Snowden is the FACE of the leaks.

    Which begs the question: who are the BA, Hannibal, and Murdock of the leaks.

    We, by which I mean you,

    Funny, I thought you were going to say "... by which I mean I ."

    I'm guessing he smiled more going in.

    Now friends, somewhere in Utah, enshrined in a little server, is a study in ones and zeroes of this Slashdot post. And the only reason I'm writing this post now is 'cause you may know somebody in a similar situation, or you may be in a similar situation, and if you're in a situation like that there's only one thing you can do and that's log into the message board wherever you are, just log in and post "General, you can read anything you want at Anonymous' Restaurant."

    And log out.

    If one person does it, they'll think he's a traitor.
    If two people do it, they'll think they're both faggots.
    If three people do it--imagine! Three people walking in, leaking information, and walking out? They'll think it's a terrorist organization.
    And can you imagine 50 people walkin' in, leakin' information, and walkin' out?! They'll think it's a terrorist movement!

    And that's what it is, the Anonymous' Restaurant Anti-Censorship Whistleblowin' Movement, and all you gotta to do join is post this message the next time this article appears on the Slashdot dupe post.

    With feeling.

    So we'll wait for it to come around as a dupe on Slashdot here, and you can post it when it does.

    Here it comes.

    You can read anything you want at Anonymous' Restaurant
    You can read anything you want at Anonymous' Restaurant
    Exfiltrate with a simple hack,
    Pop the return address from your program's stack,
    And you can read anything you want at Anonymous' Restaurant.

    That was horrible. If you want to limit the powers of the surveillance state and actually be able to exercise your civil liberties the way your scraggly-haired hippie parents did, you gotta post in ALL CAPS! I've been typing this post for 27 minutes, Mr. Anonymous Coward, I can type for another 27 minutes. I'm not proud. Or tired.

    So we'll wait for the American voters to elect candidates who are willing to force the domestic intelligence community back into compliance with constitutional law, or at least USSID-18, by means of a 21st century Church Commission, and this time with four-part harmony and feeling.

    *pause*

    (Okay, so we might be waiting for a bit longer than 27 minutes...)

    No it doesnt. http://begthequestion.info/ [begthequestion.info]

    Linguistic prescriptivists are always on the wrong side of history. This is to be expected, since history isn't written by losers.

    Or maybe they forgot to shut down Snowden's admin account? Maybe it was part of his job, to cancel his own accounts and return the door keys before he quit.
