    Greenwald moved to Brazil specifically because their extradition laws make it harder for the security state to get their hands on him.

      Greenwald is gay, and lives most of the time in Rio de Janeiro, the hometown of his Brazilian partner, David Michael Miranda. In a profile in Out magazine, Greenwald explained that his residence in Brazil is due to the fact that American law, the Defense of Marriage Act, bars the federal recognition of same-sex marriages and thus prevents his partner from obtaining immigration rights in the US.

      That's probably a better reason though.

      It ain't called paranoia - when they're really out to get you. 6 points.
