How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Partner of Journalist Responsible for Reporting on NSA Leaks Was Held at London Airport

David Miranda, the partner of the journalist who exposed the NSA’s surveillance program through records from Edward Snowden, found himself detained at a London airport for nine hours, The New York Daily News reports.

Miranda lives in Brazil with journalist Glenn Greewald, whose reports on NSA surveillance has stirred controversy around the globe.

Miranda was at Heathrow Airport returning from meeting one of Greenwald’s collaborators when he was held for nine hours under a terrorism law, the Daily News reported.

Greenwald called the detainment “a failed attempt at intimidation.”

“It’s bad enough to prosecute and imprison sources,” he said,” It’s worse still to imprison journalists who report the truth. But to start detaining the family members and loved ones of journalists is simply despotic.”
