    about the documents, except that fact that they were encrypted. Everybody's guessing at this point. If it was, indeed, a setup, they might have been an encrypted version of the Guardian stories that have already been published. That would be "Snowden material", yes?

    I gather he was coming from Berlin rather than going there. Did he go through Heathrow on his original flight, and not get stopped, or did he fly an alternate route? We don't know at this point. Makes it fun to speculate, but not very useful for drawing actual conclusions.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

      is a documentary film maker, I wonder if the "documents" were part of a video project that she is working on.  This is pure speculation, btw. I have no more information than anyone else.  We do know what she specializes in though.  And that is camera and video work.

      •  Aw, phooey. If you've gotta go and be rational (0+ / 0-)

        about it, that would make more sense. Not nearly as much fun as speculating on an elaborate setup/scam, but more likely. ;)
