Hmm...it really matters what he leaked. Stuff like spying on allies, or - surprise! - a supposed hostile Arab government feeding us under-the-table intelligence, those are the kinds of classified information definitely protected to the 9th degree.
Just so ya’ll know, folks have to remember that there is lots of information, old information and really bizarro stuff, like UFO records, that are maintained at NSA. Not all of it should still be classified. For example, Bill Clinton had his medical records classified Top Secret.
Wow, is that 9th degree stuff higher than TS SCI?
