Snowden Eludes the Press; Whereabouts Unknown

He’s like the Jason Bourne of nerdy NSA analysts:

A plane took off from Moscow Monday headed for Cuba, but the seat booked by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden was empty, and there was no sign of him elsewhere on board.

An Aeroflot representative who wouldn’t give her name told The Associated Press that Snowden wasn’t on flight SU150 to Havana. AP reporters on the flight couldn’t find him.

It also means up to a dozen journalists are on their way to Cuba without the man they were trying to find. Travel restrictions mean the reporters will have to wait three days before they can fly out again.

The press should visit Gitmo while they’re in Cuba and at least do some work on their three-day holiday.

Well, where is he? Maybe Russia has him writes the NYT.

Stay tuned . . .
