I suggest you consult with a lawyer to learn a bit about those terms, and they can explain to you that NDAs are not a violation of one's first amendment rights.

Because of his well informed choice, Snowden basically lost his freedom of movement and is confined to "living on the Internet" (in Russia).  While the same won't happen here and your analogy is quite laughable, it is important for developers to remember the agreements that they have signed and honor their word if they expect others to trust them in the future.  Most violations (like this) are simply accidental and developers for the most part want to honor the agreement and appreciate such clarifications and reminders.  Egregious and intentional violations of the NDA have in the past resulted in termination of the developer relationship with Apple which can be quite damaging to a developer's livelihood.  I'm just trying to help protect the developers that want to honor their word.
