[liberationtech] NSA-GCHQ meeting on Tor (with slides!)

  There's been a really interesting document to come out of the Guardian
today:
http://www.theguardian.com/world/interactive/2013/oct/04/tor-stinks-nsa-presentation-document

Interestingly:
  - NSA/GCHQ was fingerprinting using Flash
  - They were wondering whether to flood the network with slow
connections in order to discourage users
  - Cookie leakage
  - Timing attacks
  - Supposed bug in TorButton mid last year

There are some questions in my mind as to the legitimacy of this
document -- particularly given that a slide is marked 2007, but
references 2012. (In particular, neither Torservers nor TorButton
existed in 2007).

Thoughts?
