    There's some spook journal out there similar to Science that covers all of the United States' cutting edge classifieds. It's probably filled with some pretty impressive and alarming stuff. You haven't heard of this journal because its actually important.

    There is also, right next to the standard issue NSA commode, a magazine that details America's various clandestine exploits. It has Snowden's leaks, this new guy's leaks, and other neat intel. It is the spook version of Salon, and agents read it because it's fun.
