This is an age of paranoia, this is a time of suspicion, no one trusts anyone anymore, we see eyes flashing in the dark. Lets look at this , do you think government agencies have better things to do than watch you? Are you so important? Or do you wish you were? It would be better if we did not give these people attention , by doing so we are just encouraging children to act up like spoiled brats. So just give it a rest and stop talking about them. (sigh)

  


Sounds like a typical govt shill. You are looking thought blind eyes buddy. Keep watching your Fox News and CNN

Just wondering why he didn't encrypt his files and upload to a safe server for later retrieval. Carrying sensitive data around Heathrow airport was not such a smart move after all.

Sadly it seems its the UK and USA governments who are acting like spoilt brats and wasting time and money to maintain their own military positions and spreading propaganda same as Weapons of Mass Destruction lie propagated by Blair and Bush which mislead UK house of parliament into unjust war with Iraq. UK should give back Gibralta to Spain because its only a costly military base and is really the Spanish mainland anyway.

The courier also having access to the passwords, can’t be. These guy’s are taking direction from Assange, and the WikiLeaks legal team. I can’t see them allowing such an oversight.

  


Th e fact is the info is spread out among people as was stated in the beginning if anything were to happen to snowden. I wouldn't call Miranda a courier as he supposedly lives with Greenwald. So being his right hand man would most certainly allow him personal access to encrypted documents for editing and publishing. Do quote me if I'm wrong.

It is because he was threatened with imprisonment if he did not divulge passwords.

The data must have been encrypted. So, how are these so called investigators gaining access to it?

  


It is because he was threatened with imprisonment if he did not divulge passwords. Simply put this is only throwing off the real focus of the "Snowden Affair". Glenn Greenwald why don't you just publish the documents as they stand and stop using time and power to boost your own ego. We know you will receive royalties from your up and coming movie pansy. Man up and release them as they stand,let us sift through for ourselves.

In what appears to be a pattern, following the Brad or #ChelseaManning story, David Miranda now insists on being called Carmen Miranda and dancing with a fruit salad on his/her head in public.

Of course they never say Whose lives are at threat, knowing the damming evidence against the governments themselves, it is ONLY their necks that they are scared of being put at risk, and shown up for what they are .... pure scum they do not deserve our trust in fact they have BETRAYED that trust and need to be removed.

The UK is a police state.

It looks like it will be another closed rigged trial with falsified evidence, a threatened/bribed judge and a pre arranged outcome.

 

Ashley Kendal 22.08.2013 18:34

The documents will incriminate the Police and the Government. Only Brazil's protest stopped the UK Police from charging Miranda. This would have enabled them to keep the documents claiming they were part of a criminal investigation. Look what they did to Andrea Davison same thing only worse as she had no-one to defend her read her explosive macur statement

Most people in U.K are fully aware of how right wing authoritarian there government is and has been since the decline of the labour movement, this is nothing new. Britians been in a constant cold class war since 1945 and half of the population love nothing more than a vindictive and malicious government; although 95% of that half gain nothing from it whatsoever.
Also Snowden leaked documents directly relating to British secret services and there spying on British people, not completely following orders of the U.S if they also have something to lose.

Were the documents "highly classified" before or after they were seized? That label could easily be applied to any document with which the authorities take issue.

One World Order. We are slowly being conditioned as a species to accept a state of constant war, which requires an increase in militarized police operations against civilians to quell any form of dissent. Journalist or not, this man has every right bestowed him by natural order to be free of intimidation and oppression.
