update - Snowden
BBC world news
he's landed in Mosva, helped by gov and by Equador embassy, on his way again, possibly to Cuba, then possibly to Venezuela, then try for home assylum in Equador
my idea on this guy, he wants to be a somebody, he wants a visible profile, didn't want to be a hidden paeon trudging away in ones and zeroes, digits and data only, wanted to become, a figure wannabe - so now he's on the run, and not only find a home, but find a celebrity in a safe home, where he can continue to 'bring it', to Make it Happen - but that's only my take on't
BBC are replaying video, recorded earlier, the Guardian camera interview, the airport vids, the airport reporters et al

' In a statement Sunday, Justice Department spokeswoman Nanda Chitre said Hong Kong authorities had informed U.S. officials of Snowden's departure.
"We will continue to discuss this matter with Hong Kong and pursue relevant law enforcement cooperation with other countries where Mr. Snowden may be attempting to travel," she said.
The U.S. government had also asked Hong Kong to issue a provisional arrest warrant for Snowden, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region said in a statement. But HKSAR officials said there were problems with the request.
"Since the documents provided by the U.S. government did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law, the HKSAR government has requested the U.S. government to provide additional information," Hong Kong officials said.
Because Hong Kong didn't have enough information, "there is no legal basis to restrict Mr. Snowden from leaving Hong Kong," the government said.
A Justice Department official said Sunday that the United States had met requirements with its request, disputing the assertion from authorities in Hong Kong.
"They came back to us with a few questions late Friday and we were in the process of answering those questions," the official said. "We believe we were meeting those requirements. As far as the relationship with Hong Kong goes, this raises questions and we will continue to discuss with authorities there."
Hong Kong's lack of intervention came after Snowden told the South China Morning Post that U.S. intelligence agents have been hacking computer networks in Hong Kong and mainland China for years.
