Office 365..? how Microsoft handed the NSA access to encrypted messages

I don't think the conversation is based around the method by which information is intercepted. I hope the conversation is aligned with its reasoning for disclosure - the American people stopping a government who is known for abusing it's power. Obviously this does not mean physically stopping them, but I imagine most people know what motivates their state and national political officials. I still wonder why Mr. Snowden hasn't dropped more damaging information, it would seem his sworn enemy has made their feelings somewhat clear.

it REALLY depends on what 'prisim' is... seen in one light, the
program is 'just' isp/asp people who agree to permit FISA requests to
be satisfied via: "scp files from with key fingerprint

of course, the other way to read it (as the news would like us to
believe) is as: "plug nsa ethernet into eth1 of all servers and
routers, kthxbi!"

more details would certainly make this whole conversation less alamist
and more rational.
