Wired's James Bamford has an extensive look at Edward Snowden's life, the reasons for doing what he's done and how his actions "will continue to haunt the US." More interestingly, after reviewing the cache of secret documents made available, Bamford and others seems to believe that "another whistle-blower is releasing secret documents to the media."

Another troubling discovery was a document from NSA director Keith Alexander that showed the NSA was spying on the pornography-viewing habits of political radicals. The memo suggested that the agency could use these “personal vulnerabilities” to destroy the reputations of government critics who were not in fact accused of plotting terrorism. The document then went on to list six people as future potential targets. (Greenwald published a redacted version of the document last year on the Huffington Post.)
