the claim was not that Tor is immune to flaws. the point is that it
works. it is not systematically broken, otherwise Snowden would have
been neutralized early into tentative discussions with Laura, et. al.

it's also important to note that Tor was only part of Snowden's opsec,
which is a verbose tangent elided here.

citation needed. disclosure was delegated to reporters, as Snowden
himself collected details  that have demonstrated impact on US
interests, given only the reporting to date.

what Tor Project and EFF decisions have you felt abdicated to the government?

i have seen only positive efforts to diversify funding, advocate for
privacy, and support other organizations with interests that align
toward team-EarthHuman, and not team-NSA...
