    From Lisa O'Carroll, The Guardian:

    The Guardian has struck a partnership with the New York Times which will give the US paper access to some of the sensitive cache of documents leaked by the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. [emphasis added]...

    It is intended that the collaboration with the New York Times will allow the Guardian to continue exposing mass surveillance by putting the Snowden documents on GCHQ beyond government reach. Snowden is aware of the arrangement. (emphasis added)

    Snowden may hold the key to the parts that haven't already been published. The Guardian may have given the NYT a cull of purely British documents, to ensure that they remain outside of the control of the British government.

    So, the US would not know what Snowden has.
