very surprised if Snowden hadn't talked with officials in Hong Kong and in China before disclosing.
Snowden has made public that the NSA program targeted both Hong Kong and China...my guess is that they are very appreciative if you know what I mean; I wonder what else he told them that he didn't make public?
Both China and Hong Kong have just gained some major political leverage.
Snowden and Greenwald have thought this through and they have done it right. I believe many high level heads will roll.
Did obummer know? ummmm hmmm.
