I suddenly thought of a place that Edward Snowden could be hiding that people might not thought to check yet. I’m sure you all know who Snowden is by now, the contractor employee and former technical analyst for the CIA who outed the current NSA scandal involving phone and Internet monitoring. Just peek at this recent article detailing that his contracting firm just fired him for breach of, as if this doesn’t become a murky question, “ethics” violations. Anyway, the article reports he is believed to be hiding in Hong Kong…but I had another idea since people haven’t been able to find him yet.
Think about it, there are a ton of old Borders locations that are just out there sitting empty. I don’t know how many, but all the old Borders locations that I used to go to that I’ve checked anytime recently were still just sitting there vacant, many with their signs still on the building. Has anyone thought to check if Snowden is inside one of them?
After all, who would notice if he snuck inside a vacant Borders and hid out there? No one goes there. It’d be the perfect hiding place…much better than Hong Kong.
Now, I’m not saying that Edward Snowden is hiding out in a vacant Borders store. I’m not even taking a position on the whole Snowden/NSA debacle. I’m just saying that if he did hide out in one of the old Borders stores and it could take years before anyone thinks to look there. I don’t know how crafty Snowden is, but there is certainly the chance that he is at least that crafty.
