NSA Brags About Turning the Tables on Cyberwarfare Hackers

Der Spiegel is back publishing more of Edward Snowden’s leaks with a spin on the NSA as being one of the good guys. The leaked article shows the NSA doing what the Agency was initially designed for; protecting America from its real enemies and not spying on its own citizens for a change.

When China hacked the Department of Defense in 2009, the NSA not only pinpointed the source of attack, but broke into China's intelligence network and monitored the country's spying efforts. This "fourth party collection," as the NSA calls it, lets the agency find out what's happening without doing all the hard work.
