Who leaked the leak?

The Wall Street Journal chose to publish information about the NSA's knowledge of the FSA's acquisition of specific secrets, and of the method they used.

Whether or not the anonymous people who leaked this are telling the truth, the Wall Street Journal editors are responsible for the consequences.

Not only that, but the anonymous leakers who gave this info to the press have chosen to undermine the NSA secrecy. To harm the NSA? To retroactively the security efforts of the Obama administration? To punish Kaspersky?

Whatever the reason, it's insufficient justification. We seem to be engaged in a tail-recursive divide-and-conquer strategy.
