(NEWSER) – What has a former Navy SEAL calling Edward Snowden "very naive"? This fairly wild statement, plucked by Business Insider from a letter Snowden wrote to a US senator that was published by the Guardian:
- No intelligence service—not even our own—has the capacity to compromise the secrets I continue to protect. While it has not been reported in the media, one of my specializations was to teach our people at DIA how to keep such information from being compromised even in the highest threat counter-intelligence environments (ie, China). You may rest easy knowing I cannot be coerced into revealing that information, even under torture.
