Is the NSA Targeting TOR?

Like anything worthwhile, TOR is both light and dark, good and bad, angelic and demonic. When Aaron Swartz designed DeadDrop as a secure way for whistleblowers and other sources to safely communicate with news organization, he made the use of TOR mandatory. But DeadDrop can also be used for less noble purposes – as a way for terrorists or a criminal mob to communicate in secret for instance. Freedom is very paradoxical, you see.
