    Miranda would've known the documents were stolen -- I mean, he reads the newspapers and engages in pillow talk with GG, wouldn't you think? -- which would render him an accomplice according to anyone's laws.

    I find it unlikely he was carrying stolen documents; and if he were, then more power to him.  The only way government criminality can be exposed is by producing evidence of same, which of course involves theft.  Governments do not willingly produce evidence of their own malfeasance.

    Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej

    •  The law on whether information is "goods..." (0+ / 0-)

      is a little fuzzy.

      And even in the US, the difference between a journalist in possession of stolen documents, and anyone else in possession of them, is fuzzier still.

      But there is not question whatsoever that he was carrying stolen documents. Snowden stole the documents. Period, end of story. Any documents from the Snowden "treasure trove" were stolen by Snowden - and we know that these documents were from that trove.

      Anyway, your feelings about whether it's a good idea or not to steal things, and under what circumstances, don't really come into the question of whether it is legit for the Brits to search for stolen documents.

      Art is the handmaid of human good.
