There’s a new leaker exposing national security documents in the aftermath of surveillance disclosures by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, U.S. officials tell CNN. These leaks follow Snowden’s lead after he fled to Russia after allowing classified documents to be released.

The documents which are shared by the new leaker are labeled “Secret” and “NOFORN,” meaning it isn’t to be shared with foreign governments.

CNN reports:

Proof of the newest leak comes from national security documents that formed the basis of a news story published Tuesday by the Intercept, the news site launched by Glenn Greenwald, who also published the Snowden’s leaks.

The Intercept article focuses on the growth in U.S. government databases of known or suspected terrorist names during the Obama administration.

The article cites documents prepared by the National Counterterrorism Center dated August 2013, which is after Snowden flew to Russia to avoid U.S. criminal charges.

    the comments below are pathetic – this is a scenario where a govt keeping secrets from its people is being exposed – nothing is much more important than an open and honest society which, as of the moment, doesn’t exist anywhere except maybe in the heart of the Kalahari Desert.
