HONG KONG — The Hong Kong government announced on Sunday afternoon that it had allowed the departure from its territory of Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who has acknowledged disclosing classified documents about United States government surveillance of Internet and telephone communications around the world. snip

The Aeroflot agent said that Mr. Snowden is traveling with one other person, with the surname Harrison, but the agent declined to release the other traveler’s first name, saying that she did not have the authorization to do so. The closest adviser to Julian Assange, who orchestrated the release of the Wikileaks diplomatic cables three years ago, is named Sarah Harrison, prompting speculation that she was the Harrison on the flight with Mr. Snowden.

Who is this Harrison on the flight with Snowden? They are speculating in the article.
Maybe a Harrison J. Bounel reference?

I see this as more of a “Thanks for tossing us to the wolves” from Hong Kong.

I just think it is strange that out of all of the names he could be traveling with, it would be Harrison??

Here is the likely Snowden travelmate Sarah Harrison pictured with boss Julian Assange.

Here is another. She is identified as "assistant to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange".

” The Hong Kong government said on Sunday, in its first detailed statement about Mr. Snowden, that the United States had made a legal request for the issue of a provisional warrant of arrest against Mr. Snowden, but that the Hong Kong government had concluded that the request “did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law.””

And the Administration screws up again.......LOL
