— Glen Greenwald who writes stories based on documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Ed Snowden on Monday said he'll publish with more fervor after British authorities detained his partner, David Miranda, for nine hours at Heathrow Airport in London. Miranda was on his way home to Rio from Berlin after meeting with Laura Poitras, the US film-maker who also works on stories related to Snowden"s release of NSA files. As a journalist, he was ferrying information between Poitras and Greenwald, but he was detained anyway. Speaking about his harrowing experience he said, "They asked questions about my whole life, about everything. They took my computer, video game, cellphone, memory thumb drives, everything." Once Miranda arrived at Rios's International airport, Greenwald said he's going to publish many more things about England. "I have many documents about England's espionage system, and now my focus will be there, too. I think they'll regret what they've done."
