NSA Braced For New Leaks: ‘Another Major Loss Of’ Sensitive Intelligence Sources/Methods Apparently Imminent

Bill Gertz, posted an article late yesterday evening, (Feb. 13, 2015,) on The Washington Free Beacon website, that says the “National Security Agency (NSA) is preparing to be hit with another major loss of secrets,” according to U.S. Intelligence officials.” Mr. Gertz writes that “the [new] leaks are expected to be published in the near future…by a news outlet that was not identified — by officials familiar with the details of the compromise [new revelations].” Mr. Gertz writes that “NSA is aware of the news outlet’s forthcoming disclosures; and, is taking steps to try and minimize any damage they may cause.” According to the officials, “the latest disclosure of NSA secrets is not the result of insider stealing documents, as occurred in the case of NSA contractor Edward Snowden. “Instead,” Mr. Gertz writes, “the leaks will reveal certain NSA technical cyber intelligence gathering capabilities. ”

“Certain techniques used by NSA in cyber operations became known to technicians at a non-U.S. cyber security firm operating from Mexico. The company then contacted a news outlet with the details it uncovered. A report detailing the breach could be made public as soon as this weekend.”

Just what what we need, in the middle of a heightened threat by the Islamic State and al Qaeda. Not good. V/R, RCP
