So Snowden is now in trouble not only with a host of human authorities, but also with the vegetable kingdom too. I expect the realm of quantum physics to rise up against him any day now.

He truly is the naughtiest of boys.

Snowden is learning the hard way that committing a crime isn’t the hard part. The hard part is the getaway. And identifying yourself to the world as the culprit drops your chances of success like a bag of rocks.

Seriously, how conceited must you be to out yourself for espionage? To assume that you’ve got every possible angle covered? Stupid movies make it seem so simple and easy. But its neither.

His delusions of grandeur are crumbling.

Not to mention broadcasting your itinerary en route vs hen you’re safely ensconced in, say, Havana where your next leg may not cross US airspace. Tradecraft, indeed. :-D

I’m wondering if Snowden has made these travel decisions completely on his own (since to a certain extent, they make no damned sense), or if he has just been taking some exceptionally bad advice. One report in the South China Morning Post quoted his local attorney as saying Snowden is “very independent,” but takes advice well. To me, it suggests Snowden is irrationally stubborn or woefully ignorant about how tradecraft and international politics work in practice, or both.
