It was just reported that Mr. Snowden has left China which was being pressured to extradite him back to the United States. It has been reported that he was interested in getting asylum in Iceland, but the best route there where he would not be stopped and extradited is through Russia. There is not clear idea yet where he is, but I for one think it’s all a set up. I’ve never seen a whistle blower with this well packaged a presentation of what he is revealing.
Usually, they are giving some press conference, act very nervous, and just don’t come across as smoothly as Snowden has. We shall be distracted with this for some time. Why do I say distracted? Because there are other things going on right now, nothing will happen regarding the spying, and people are getting scared to talk.
