Acts like this are not of leadership, they are of power, they are of control. A 'good' NSA would inform companies and work with them to be more secure. Not hide flaws, and hope that the NSA is the only one that knows about the exploit. What if foreign companies or organized crime knows about the security hole? Shouldn't our government help you understand when you are unsafe, rather than ensuring you stay unsafe?
I guess there is always honor among thieves.
