British intelligence and the Americans work together to harass the Snowden reporter from The Guardian UK by detaining his partner.

Already most of the NSA stories were being reported and edited out of New York. —

Sidenote:  On my trip to the UK… my luggage and my friends luggage were both searched (according to the TSA slip enclosed inside indicating they had been selected as part of a terrorist search procedure to “randomly search” luggage of travelers.

And then both our suitcases were routed on different flights from ours on the way over to the UK.  We both flew separate flights and our luggage ended up at Heathrow hours later, in my case.  My friend’s luggage arrived a day later.  Clearly this was no accident.
