Never There

Imagine my surprise to click on today's Guardian update on the Snowden Thing to find this headline:

Edward Snowden never crossed border into Russia, says foreign minister

Who'd a thunk, eh?

Spy vs Spy, indeed. This is looking more and more like Inner Party factional struggle all the time.

But then, you never know...




 Well, Vladimir has now said that Young Snowden is cooling his heels in the airport awaiting his fate. Sure. Right. Whatever. Oh, yes. And that Fate does not include his extradition to the USA.

How is it that Young Snowden "never crossed the border into Russia," you ask? Simple. He's in a an international transit zone inside the airport. Not technically -- or apparently legally -- "in Russia" at all.

 So there.
