  •  OK, that's a lot closer. (0+ / 0-)

    Although I'd say Greenwald was speaking a bit sloppily there.  Obviously, things have already happened to Snowden - i.e. he's been stranded in Moscow by the actions of our government.  So it's obviously not really "anything happens at all."

    After all, nobody can live without things continuously happening to them.  So I'd still argue that the context of the many other comments which focus on the possibility that he will be killed (or disappeared) are important to a real understanding of what's being said.
