The recent budget was labeled ""Access to the information in this document is restricted to US citizens with active SCI accesses for SPECIAL INTELLIGENCE andTALENT-KEYHOLE information."

We know that hackers from China had free reign over the New York Times network--conceivably they had access to information that wasn't "fit to print". Is it too much of a stretch to thing that the Guardian network contained information that was useful for the pursuit of journalism, but not necessarily appropriate for full disclosure? Could hostile intelligence agencies gain access to the complete files and thwart the Guardian's attempts to redact, edit, and engage in responsible journalism?
