Nothing like a lover scorned! They done pissed off the wrong guy.

I will say this.. politicians in both parties in multiple countries are scared to DEATH of what could be exposed.

There’s some serious hoo haa they’d like to keep on the DL.

But I look for Greenwald to let the chips fall now..

Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who interviewed Edward Snowden and revealed the US National Security Agency’s mass monitoring of phone and internet use, said the UK would be “sorry” for the detention.

Speaking from Brazil, where he met David Miranda, his partner, off a plane from London, he said the incident would only make his reporting more aggressive.

This is just plain damned funny. But it won’t be when all the powers in the world come after them. But for now, it’s funny.

Somebody needs to do a good expose’ on Greenwald’s background. I smell a rat, a big red juicy rat.

Any connections to the old Phillip Agee/Mark Hosenball crowd?

Looks like there is a “gay” connection too that could lead to Bradley Manning, Snowden, and possibly Julian Assange himself.

Just asking because no one else seems to be.

At this point I say let it all hang out.........there is no one in the US government, or their policies, that I have the slightest interests in protecting. Tactical operations I will judge on a case by case basis.

Well, there you go, complete and utter justification for holding the journalist’s lover for hours under the terrorism act, as he just made a terrorist threat.

Love it when homos outsmart themselves.

No direct flight from Berlin to Rio, but next time I bet they will fly direct from Frankfurt to Rio. Someone overplayed their hand, I highly doubt what they got was worth the hornets nest that they stirred up. The British media is on the warpath this morning, someone is going to have to fall on his sword over there and it may be David Cameron the Prime Minister.
