    •  I have no clue if she has given Der Spiegel (6+ / 0-)

      Access to all of her Snowden files. I doubt it as even Greenwald describes her as the 'Keiser Soze' of their operation, controlling their narrative closely from behind the scenes in Berlin as she crafts her film. She is more closely affiliated with Assange & Wikileaks than Glenn is by a degree or two for what ever that's worth. She has shared bylines in Der Speigel all summer. I Don't know why she's not on this one. Puling out of my are, I could imagine after the Miranda event, she wants to lie lower again for a bit, but I'm clearly speculating there.

      It is quite clear the Snowden purposely split the contents and no single party has all of the content, he was quite clear about that.

      This is also the case with the "back-up" files he claims to have distributed to other parties, that would receive crypto passwords from 3rd parties should the need arise.

      He was, actually, an analyst for the CIA and received some training on how and why to do that.

      And by the way, Snowden expressed a higher level of trust in Poitras than Greenwald because of her greater caution and experience dealing with secret information; in fact, although he initially contacted Greenwald, he did not immediately provide him information because Greenwald was not using a secure and encrypted email account, hence the face to face meetings in Hong Kong where trust was first established with Pointras.

      THis is well reported is you search it.
