Cracks in the foundations

"Are the Shadow Brokers identical with the Second Source?"

"Shadow Brokers And The “Second Source”".  emptywheel has been unconvincing lately, another victim of Putin/Trump Derangement Syndrome, now apparent due to The Clarification.

The careful Electrospaces conclusion is that Shadow Brokers is probably the Second Source (second to Snowden), and is probably an NSA insider based out of the NSA facility in San Antonio.  All of these 'hacks' are actually leaks, and leaks pose a deep psychological problem for Imperialists (leaks drive them bat-shit insane; see also Angleton's insane and destructive/self-destructive search for the supposed CIA mole back in the 60s).  A hack is evidence of a technical problem which can be fixed, while a leak is a much deeper and darker problem, one involving dissent from the ideological foundations of Empire, and one that cannot ever truly be fixed, even by apprehending the leaker.
