Response to David Miranda Is Nobody’s Errand Boy:
Whether, or not, Miranda is a willing “adult” participant in this affair, his actions and corresponding expectations were extremely naive. Mr. Greenwald’s use of Miranda as a courier of stolen classified documents is deeply curious behavior for a former constitutional attorney. It has been revealed that Glenn, Poitras, and the Guardian were all keenly aware that their communications were at risk of being intercepted by numerous intelligence agencies prior to the initial disclosure of the Snowden documents. Why, then, would Mr. Greenwald use his partner to allegedly carry thousands of stolen classified documents from Germany to Brazil via Britain? Why would Miranda be carrying a copy of that which Glenn Greenwald was already in possession of? Is it possible that this whole affair has been staged to further sensationalize a story that is poised to reap ample rewards well into the foreseeable future?
