REPORT: SNOWDEN NOT ON PLANE TO CUBA

Posted By Justin Raimondo On June 24, 2013 @ 2:42 am In News | Comments Disabled

The Guardian, which was supposedly live-blogging Edward Snowden’s departure from Moscow and his flight to Cuba, is reporting [1] the whistle-blowing computer whiz is not on the plane [2] — 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 [3]is Edward Snowden?

UPDATE: 4:15 AM, PST: Interfax reporting [4] 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 [5] (ht: Interfax) Snowden is “probably already outside the Russian Federation.” Confused yet?
