Increasingly the whole thing is starting to look like an operation that belonged Sutler and Creedy from V for Vendetta.

One of the key scenes(NWSF) in the film featured Creedy and armed men trying to kill V. Creedy demands, “Why won’t you die?” To which V replies, “Beneath this mask there is more than flesh Mr Creedy. Beneath this mask there is an idea. And ideas are bulletproof.”

At the end of the Atlantic article, writer Bruce Schneier, says of the attempt to intimidate

“This is only the beginning. The media will not be intimidated. I will not be intimidated. But it scares me that the NSA is so blind that it doesn’t see it.”

Mark 5:9: “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.”
