1. What happens to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden now?

    Since leaking NSA documents to The Guardian, Edward Snowden has been hiding out in a hotel in Hong Kong, a city he chose because it supposedly has “a spirited commitment to free speech and the right of political dissent.”

    Several critics have been quick to note that Hong Kong is not nearly as free as Snowden claims. Hong Kong — which China gained sovereignty over in 1997 — is, along with Macau, a “special administrative region” that has a fair amount of autonomy from mainland China.
