Snowden Impervious to Torture, uses Unbreakable Encryption

Rest assured people, the secrets that Snowden has and still hasn’t released are protected by the most unbreakable encryption in the world in which Snowden has the only key. And even torture itself will not drag it out of him, because, as he says, he is “impervious” to torture…

According to The Guardian, Snowden made these bizarre claims in an e-mail exchange with former United States Senator Gordon J. Humphrey. During the exchange Snowden reasserts his claim that he only released what he did for the greater good, to educate and inform the American people about the spying that the government was involved in against its own civilians.

He then stated that he did not release any information that would harm our people and that the rest of the secrets he has are protected.

But how well?

Well, completely impervious to compromise. That is if you believe what Snowden says in this e-mail:

“… Further, no intelligence service – not even our own – has the capacity to compromise the secrets I continue to protect. While it has not been reported in the media, one of my specializations was to teach our people at DIA how to keep such information from being compromised even in the highest threat counter-intelligence environments (i.e. China).

You may rest easy knowing I cannot be coerced into revealing that information, even under torture.”

A pretty big boast. I know some guys who have been trained to resist torture. But these guys are high end operators, not IT guys.

And what about the reports that the Chinese took his laptops from him when he arrived in Hong Kong?

According to the NY Times,”Two Western intelligence experts, who worked for major government spy agencies, said they believed that the Chinese government had managed to drain the contents of the four laptops that Mr. Snowden said he brought to Hong Kong.”

Does he really think he could hold up under Russian torture?

I mean really?

And who is to say that they would just beat him? There are other ways to make a man talk.

What about drugs?

Or better yet, this:

Snowden Marriage

Yeah… I think this young man is in way over his head…

  1. It’s obvious that he does not mean he is impervious to torture, rather that the files are encrypted with a scheme that requires two or more people’s keys in order to decrypt the files.

    1. Interesting point, but that is not what he said. He said that he could not be coerced into revealing the secrets.

      Anyways, what about the 4 laptops that he reportedly just handed to the Chinese?
