  •  Authorities is a term of art (3+ / 0-)

    Snowden did not say he could target anyone but rather that he could obtain authorities on the POTUS based on a personal e-mail. That's scary.

    Some past stories now make sense such as the complaint by the FBI that Apple didn't store iMessages on their servers nor cached their decryption keys. More to the point here scooping the private e-mails between American citizens not talking about a crime, e.g. David Petraeus.
