15. And he himself has no idea what he leaked.

Who does he think he's kidding? He didn't read the terabytes of info either, and on top of that, he no longer has control of it:

(“Snowden … was manic in his thievery, which was exponentially larger than Hanssen’s,” NSA Inspector General George Ellard said at the Georgetown conference. “Robert Hanssen's — the FBI agent who spied for Russia — theft was in a sense finite, whereas Snowden is open-ended as his agents decide daily which documents to disclose. Snowden had no background in intelligence and is likely unaware of the significance of the documents he stole.”)

Seems Greenwald has control, and leaks out dribs of it when he wants to get traffic and attention to his new media venture.

It worked out great for him, not so much for the person who leaked the info that "benefited every society in the world".

(God, that was even hard to type. Don't know if I'm worthy enough to type such an important person's comment).
