BREMMER: The UK And US Are Likely Preparing To Indict Journalist Glenn Greenwald Over Snowden Leaks (http://www.businessinsider.com/glenn-greenwald-indictment-2013-8)

The domestic partner of Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, who reported classified information leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, was detained at Heathrow Airport over the weekend and interrogated for 9 hours.

UK authorities detained Greenwald's partner, David Miranda, while he was en route from Berlin to Brazil. They held him under an anti-terrorism law, which allows them to detain and question anyone for any reason without stating the cause.

Authorities also "confiscated" Miranda's laptop, smartphone, memory sticks, camera, and game consoles, the Guardian reports. Glenn Greenwald confirmed to Business Insider this morning that these items, which included a "WiFi watch," have not been returned.

One initial theory about the detainment in the Twittersphere was that UK authorities were trying to hassle and harass Greenwald, who is obviously the bane of secrecy-loving government authorities these days.

But this morning, geo-political expert Ian Bremmer of the Eurasia Group suggested that the motive was far more serious. Bremmer thinks it's likely that the U.S. and U.K. authorities are preparing "indictments" against Glenn Greenwald.

I'm guessing Greenwald has copies of the files in various other places.

I'm not going to shed too many tears for the Guardian. They banned me for quoting true crime stats in Trayvon Martin threads or possibly for my position on Muslim immigration.

Why so angry, Nova? Not a big fan of free press?

Now now, don't be bitchy. Just because there has been a gay connection to the two largest leaks of classified US data in history doesn't mean anything, right?
