Update: WikiLeaks has modified its statement (original in my last post) about Edward Hayden's flight from Hong Kong slightly to say Snowden is seeking asylum in Ecuador. Press reports have Snowden still at the Moscow airport.
The corporate media is alternately engaging in second guessing the Obama Administration's tactics, saying they allowed Snowden to escape Hong Kong, and blaming Hong Kong, Russia, and other countries for their lack of cooperation.
US politicians like Barbara Boxer, chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and many others, embarrassed by letting Hayden slip through their fingers, continue to blame Hayden for how far America's once-proud guarantees of civil liberties have been eroded by the US president and congress.
