NSA confirms Clinton email contained signals intelligence above Top Secret level

ObserverNow, over two months later, I can confirm that the contents of Sid Blumenthal’s June 8, 2011 email to Hillary Clinton, sent to her personal, unclassified account, were indeed based on highly sensitive NSA information. The Agency investigated this compromise and determined that Mr. Blumenthal’s highly detailed account of Sudanese goings-on, including the retelling of high-level conversations in that country, was indeed derived from NSA intelligence.

That sources at the NSA -- which was once referred to jokingly as "No Such Agency", referring to it being so secret no one would admit it existed -- are willing to confirm that Clinton's email contained their signals intelligence information and that it was based on reports classified above the Top Secret level is frankly amazing. Even having the public discussion about this incident has probably tipped off the people being spied on that they are not secure and caused them to change their security measures, effectively burning the source.

One NSA source described it as "word for word, verbatim copying."
