#1 "Disgruntled"

Yeah, they always use that one. It means he saw what they were doing from the inside and became righteously angry.

The Vault 7 leaks exposed the CIA as being able to plant an electronic signature on hacks to create a false flag. Remember when the CIA claimed Russian hacking due to finding "Russian" malware on infected systems? From Vault 7: CIA can customize the "fingerprints" hacks leave behind and make it look like someone else did it.

The CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques stolen from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.

#2 Prosecutors have said the leak was devastating to national security, as it exposed CIA operatives, brought intelligence gathering to a halt and left allies wondering whether the U.S. could be trusted with sensitive information.

The events of 9/11 were "devastating." The frustration discussed herein point to a lack of a 'plan B' or contingency. Risk of compromise is inevitable and must be taken into account with any intelligence operation or project.

#3 Seriously, traitors should be shot. If we can't make an example of this guy then it will only get worse.

Of course, that assumes we have evidence he's guilty.
