KPMG had already paid over $775,000,000 in fines for various illegal, unethical and fraudulent practices since '03, and they took Phil on in '08 at the height of multiple suits and indictments for dirty mortgage deals and involvement with Madoff's Ponzi scheme.

“A glance at these comments confirms wisdom of Snowden long eschewing personal publicity... almost all are projections of what he looked, sounded or acted like, whether he was likeable, arrogant, sympathetic - the HP story itself is explicitly framed in parlance of celebrity/notoriety/cult of personality.
He dropped a huge, embarrassing bombshell about unwarranted, unconstitutional covert surveillance in Americans' laps and their personal prejudices, discomforts, fears and fatalism come flying at HIM. Turn your lens around. Ask if this free nation's legitimate security mandates such intrusion on so many at such cost and if it in any way - in human network terms - improves on pre-9/11 intelligence that knew and still failed.”
