     For the second time in as many days, a news article is out claiming that the U.S. Government mobilized the CIA and DoD in an attempt to intercept and capture fugitive Edward Snowden when he was en route to Moscow from Hong Kong.  Martin Robinson, writing for London’s The Daily Mail Online, writes on the February 3, 2016 edition of the publication that “a secret American flight sent to capture Edward Snowden, flew over Scotland in a last gasp effort to intercept him.”  Mr. Robinson adds that after an arrest warrant was issued on Mr. Snowden, “a jet [previously used] by America for rendition flights was sent to Europe on June 24, as part of a plot to intercept Snowden as he crossed the world.”

     “Scottish Investigative Journalist Duncan Campbell says the jet crossed Scotland via the Outer Hebrides, the Highlands, and Aberdeenshire at 45,000ft., with no set destination,” Mr. Robinson writes.  “The 20-seater plane, N977GA,  allegedly stopped in Copenhagen, where the Danes were asked to use America’s Espionage Act to arrest Snowden if he arrived there.”\

     This latest report comes a day after the World Socialist Website claimed “U.S. intelligence maintained an aircraf, a GulfStream V, and a paramilitary team on standby in Copenhagen — awaiting orders to seize Snowden — in the event he crossed a number of European countries.”  In an article written by Thomas Gaist, the publication claimed Danish media outlet — Denfri — obtained previously undisclosed documents using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), showing that the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), sought the cooperation of the Norwegian Government — demanding they immediately notify U.S. agencies in the event Snowden traveled to Norway, Finland, Sweden, or Denmark.”

     Is this actually true?  It is certainly plausible.  In a way, I am kind of glad he wasn’t apprehended — assuming he has to spend many years more than he would prefer in Putin’s Russia.  V/R, RCP
