Greenwald has a second NSA source, higher-up than Snowden, says documentary "Citizenfour"

Hollywood Reporter:

A second National Security Agency whistleblower exists within the ranks of government intelligence.

That bombshell comes toward the end of Citizenfour, a new documentary from filmmaker Laura Poitras about NSA informant Edward Snowden that had its world premiere on Friday at the New York Film Festival.

In the key scene, journalist Glenn Greenwald visits Snowden at a hotel room in Moscow. Fearing they are being taped, Greenwald communicates with Snowden via pen and paper.

While some of the exchanges are blurred for the camera, it becomes clear that Greenwald wants to convey that another government whistleblower -- higher in rank than Snowden -- has come forward.

The revelation clearly shocks Snowden, whose mouth drops open when he reads the details of the informant's leak.

Interesting, if true.

Then again, it could be disinformation. Remember Angleton, Golitsyn, and the mole hunt? A certain sort of mind might find it fun to tie the Obama administration in the same sort of knot.

Another whistleblower would be great, and any disinformation of the sort to which you refer could only be slightly less so. Anything that makes war criminals uncomfortable is fine by me.

Chinese fire drills are always fun to watch.
