NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was confirmed to have left Hong Kong over the weekend on a commercial flight to Moscow. He was accompanied by Wikileaks personnel and was expected to depart Russia for either Ecuador or Venezuela, by way of Havana. Snowden never got on his flight to Havana, although Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, himself a political refugee inside Ecuador’s British embassy, reports Snowden is “healthy and safe.” [Source: Reuters]
