Conspiracy theory aside, I'm curious about these. I mean, p12: "How
does TOR handle DNS requests?...still investigating".

That seems remarkably clueless for spooks capable of interdicting
networking hardware and implanting invisible malware, doesn't it?
Especially since Tor had military backing - it's not like they should
have struggled to find someone who could explain the basics. Couldn't
they just pick up the phone? Or, you know, visit torproject.org and
find the answer there?

So I do wonder. About its age, about its source, about its
reliability...about lots of things. But in particular, I wonder
whether (since that part is so clueless) we should rely too heavily on
its claims about agencies' limitations in attacking Tor.
