11. "They spoke anonymously as a condition of describing their surveillance of the groups."

Right, because this information would only help al Queda if there was a name attached to it. Anonymous makes it okay.

So in order to describe the harm Snowden has done, we tell al Queda info about what our sense of their current communication methods is?

Silliness.

Also, note that a congressperson disclosed presumably classified intelligence (anonymously) for this article about al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula's techniques.

I wonder how upset that congressperson is about Snowden, while leaking sensitive intel about al-Qaida surveillance to the press.

That's what kills me... Peter King (for instance) is a one man espionage crew. He can't open his mouth without blabbing some shit. And he is probably among the most upset about leakers.
