WikiLeaks Says It Has Obtained Trove Of CIA Hacking Tools

I don't get it, even if these documents aren't fake, isn't this what the CIA does? A spy agency making spying tools. It's like posting Colonel Sander's secret recipe and acting shocked when you find out it contains chicken.

The anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks said Tuesday that it has obtained a vast portion of the CIA’s computer hacking arsenal, and began posting the files online in a breach that may expose some of the U.S. intelligence community’s most closely guarded cyber weapons. A statement from WikiLeaks indicated that it planned to post nearly 9,000 files describing code developed in secret by the CIA to steal data from targets overseas and turn ordinary devices including cellphones, computers and even television sets into surveillance tools.
