A Brand New, Previously Untold Story for the David Miranda Detention
Suddenly tonight, as part of an article about a file-sharing program being promoted by Greenwald associate Micah Lee, we have yet another story about why Glenn Greenwald sent his partner David Miranda to Germany as a “mule” to carry Edward Snowden’s stolen documents: Free App Lets the Next Snowden Send Big Files Securely and Anonymously.
When Glenn Greenwald discovered last year that some of the NSA documents he’d received from Edward Snowden had been corrupted, he needed to retrieve copies from fellow journalist Laura Poitras in Berlin. They decided the safest way to transfer the sizable cache was to use a USB drive carried by hand to Greenwald’s home in Brazil. As a result, Greenwald’s partner David Miranda was detained at Heathrow, searched, and questioned for nine hours.
Incredible. A brand new story for the Miranda escapade. I thought we were done seeing new explanations for this one, but apparently not.
And remember how Greenwald mocked the NSA for not protecting their files? Now we find out that Greenwald let his own copies of these extremely sensitive files get corrupted.
