Land of the Free? CIA bugging factory fresh Iphones since 2008????

Thanks to Overwatch DVA for the link!

The latest leaks from WikiLeaks' Vault 7 is titled “Dark Matter” and claims that the CIA has been bugging “factory fresh” iPhones since at least 2008 through suppliers.  The full documents are expected to be released after a 10 a.m. EDT “press briefing” that WikiLeaks promoted on its Twitter.
I wanted so badly to not comment and just provide a link to the full story (here), but I'm just not that disciplined. So here goes.  I find it interesting that everyone is outraged about the "Russian hacking" of the DNC.  They did NOT plant evidence!  They just gave Americans a peek behind the curtain. Why is that considered an attack?  Quite honestly it could almost be considered patriotic.  We get to know what they really think about us.  We get to know how they really feel about "we the people".

Which leads me to Snowden.  I'm conflicted about that dude.  Information like you see above gives us a view into govt activity that we wouldn't normally see.  Are they traitorous (talking about Snowden and Wikileaks) because we get to see govt abuses?  Or are they bold patriots that stand against the mob and do what's right?

I don't know but we should all think about it.
