He Doesn't "Control" the information.

He ensured that others can control it, use it, and distribute it, if something happens to him.

If he was the only one who had the pass key, then the quickest and surest way to prevent information disclosure, would be to have him killed, which is what Snowden is avoiding.

I don't doubt you know all this.
I just wanted to point out that Snowden doesn't control the passkey (maybe just for his copy of the data).
