The federal government has concluded 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.

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.

    If this is an employee of the Agency that should be able to track each and every person that has accessed that information. If it was obtained from outside the agency they need some new people providing technical security. There is no possible excuse for anyone from outside the agency accessing their data bases. This time, they should track them down, and let them suffer the full measure of the law.

    • Nice.

      Get real. The government, not to bash it, has been doing an outstanding job of keeping secrets. You always hear when they slip up…news sources jump at the sheer thought of info breaches.
