This thing is a mess.
Check it out:


The former National Security Agency contractor who disclosed a highly classified surveillance program has had his U.S. passport revoked.

A U.S. official on Sunday said Edward Snowden’s passport was annulled before he left Hong Kong for Russia. Mr. Snowden’s travel plans could be complicated — but not thwarted — by a lack of passport. The U.S. official said that if a senior official in a country or airline ordered it, a country could overlook the withdrawn passport.

The former contractor is said to be in Moscow, and his allies at anti-secrecy WikiLeaks said Mr. Snowden is bound for Ecuador. The foreign minister there says he has requested asylum.
