  •  Yes, It all seems to fit a timeline (9+ / 0-)

    Greenwald has been working on the NSA leaks for 2 months. Snowden must have fled Hawaii at least a couple weeks before this shit storm was going to break. The NSA gets informed the minute a contractor disappears. NSA focuses PRISM on Snowden and maybe they discover he's been communicating with Greenwald.

    Then out of nowhere, Orwell Obama gives us his big speech to remind us "Be afraid. Be very afraid. We're gonna change the GWOT approach. The Drones will now be kinder and gentler bombers. We'll continue to keep you safe. But still Be Afraid."

    It's just my Spidey Sense tingling. :-)

    No longer Hoping for Change. Now Praying for a Miracle.

    •  Ten days (5+ / 0-)

      I read or heard just this morning that he has been in Hong Kong for ten days.  In the interview or somewhere I think Glenn said that he goes to Hong Kong for work. I assumed that he was continuing to work until Friday or thereabouts.  He might have taken vacation time, but of course they'd be looking for that too and would have reached out to/investigated anyone on vacation or sick leave.

      I also think they knew the leaks were coming. Surely Glenn is monitored all the time. But Snowden is an expert at this. He might know how to cover his tracks.  He says that he can get the communications of any person if he has an email address.  He doesn't mention (yet) if there are ways to avoid being collected on.  I've long thought that there would be ways that certain people would make sure their damning evidence would not be stored.  I mean it is just common sense right?
