More Snowdens and Mannings

Truism or not, but I bet we are going to see more Snowdens and Mannings.
One of lessons inferred from 9/11 was that greater information sharing amongst US government agencies was needed. So now more people in more organizations have access to the large pool of secret info that used to be highly compartmentalized. The existence of this big common pool increases opportunities for leaks. And desire of a number of nations to poke US in the eye means that those – who want to leak such info – can have reasonable hope of avoiding prosecution.
