NSA breaches lead to serial screw up around the world

NY Times:

Security Breach and Spilled Secrets Have Shaken the N.S.A. to Its Core

A serial leak of the agency’s cyberweapons has damaged morale, slowed intelligence operations and resulted in hacking attacks on businesses and civilians worldwide.
There was a time when people joked that the NSA was so secret its initials stood for No Such Agency.  Now it is in the news routinely for catastrophic failures to maintain its own security when it comes to digital operations.  Was the agency breached by the Russians, Chinese North Koreans, or Iran or all of the above?  Who is responsible for all of the damage done with the results of the breaches?  I am not sure they even know.

Then there is the fact that Democrats in the Obama administration used teh NSA to spy on the Trump campaign and released classified material to the media in those attacks.  So far, no one has even been accused of the crimes much less prosecuted.  As long as teh DOJ is looking at adding special prosecutors, they should add one for those crimes.
