Edward Snowden just blew a massive hole in Obama's PR campaign against Chinese hacking of US civilian targets. Relevant sections bolded for emphasis. NSA leaker Edward Snowden: U.S. targets China with hackers - The Washington Post There is no good way out of this situation for the US government. No wonder Obama couldn't push Xi towards a US-favored cyber accord at Sunnylands. Look at the news over the past six months - story after story on Chinese hacking, pushed constantly by Western media outlets - this entire carefully orchestrated campaign was just undone by one man. Bravo.
