The Guardian, which was supposedly live-blogging Edward Snowden’s departure from Moscow and his flight to Cuba, is reporting the whistle-blowing computer whiz is not on the plane — much to the dismay of a sizeable contingent of reporters, who hurriedly booked seats on the same flight. And the reporter,  Miriam Elder, adds this startling observation:

“She said Aeroflot officials had told her “with a little smirk” that they had been expecting Snowden too.

“But Miriam pointed out that Snowden had never actually been sighted in Moscow, and there was actually no real evidence that he had ever been in Russia at all.

“Meanwhile a planeload of journalists are now off to spend the day in Cuba.”

Where in the world is Edward Snowden?

UPDATE: 4:15 AM, PST: Interfax reporting Snowden “likely” to take the next flight out to Cuba, but could “stay in transit zone indefinitely.” Whatever that means…

UPDATE: 4:41 AM, PST: Guardian now reporting (ht: Interfax) Snowden is “probably already outside the Russian Federation.” Confused yet?



  1. Do you think that he is dead? Do you think that someone mudered him? Do you think that he never really left Hong Kong, after all?


    1. Do you think he would broadcast his itinerary?
      Do you think this is anything other than a shell game?

  2. “They seek him here, they seek him there
    Those Frenchies seek him everywhere
    Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
    That demned elusive Pimpernel”
    ? Emmuska Orczy, The Scarlet Pimpernel

  3. The NSA should call in NASA to track Snowden! NASA manages to successfully track Santa Claus all over the world on Christmas Eve. Snowden should be a cinch for them.

  4. Hmm. Strange. I wonder if this was Edward's ploy to distract people or if he's being detained for some reason. Possibly it's all just clerical. And I wonder why he just doesn't fly directly to Ecuador.

  5. "Who is Spain?"

    "Why is Hitler?"

    "When is right?"

    "Where was that stooped and mealy-colored old man I used to call Poppa when the merry-go-round broke down?"

    "How was trump at Munich?"

    "Ho-ho beriberi."



    all rang out in rapid succession, and then there was Yossarian with the question that had no answer:

    "Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear?"

    (from Catch-22)

  6. Snowden is pulling a snow job. How sweet it is to see the US Hardliners puffing up their chests, and making bigger fools of themselves than they already are. hee hee. I hope he gets away.

  7. The hilarious part is that there was an anti-alcohol policy on the flight to Cuba, so those reporters who got on board couldn't even get a drink!
