Secrets? What secrets?

None dare call it treason:

As the nation’s spy agencies assess the fallout from disclosures about their surveillance programs, some government analysts and senior officials have made a startling finding: the impact of a leaked terrorist plot by Al Qaeda in August has caused more immediate damage to American counterterrorism efforts than the thousands of classified documents disclosed by Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor.

Did you catch that? The intentional leaking of a plot in a transparent political ploy did more damage than the damge done by Edward Snowden. And that was in The New York Times, not on some rightwing blog.
