Hey all.
I’m collecting quotes of complimentary things our adversaries have said about Tor for possible inclusion on a t-shirt, and I would really appreciate your help.  Roger got me started with a bunch of quotes below, but most of them are missing attribution.  So if any of you have additional quotes and/or can add attribution to Roger’s quotes below, I would be extremely grateful.  Thanks in advance for your help with this!

> Here are some:
> - "Still the King of high secure, low latency Internet Anonymity" "There
>  are no contenders for the throne in waiting" -- from an NSA or GCHQ
>  slide deck in 2011
> - "Tor Project staffed with smart people!" from the same slide deck
> - "Tor is very good -- No passive exploitation :-(" from the same slide
>  deck
> - "TorButton: A Thorn in the side of SIGINT" from the same slide deck
> - "Catastrophic: near-total loss/lack of insight to target communications,
> presence" refering to impact of Tor, TrueCrypt, and Tails.
> - "Very naughty people use Tor" -- GCHQ, in a summary slide from a slide
> deck analyzing hidden service security (also "Near impossible to figure
> out who is talking to who").
> There are a few more that I should hunt down, like a good quote about
> Tails, and something complimentary of Mike in particular. But maybe
> those will be a good start?
