Snowden Leaves Hong Kong: The Plot Thickens

I have no idea where this saga is leading and little do we know what has been transpiring "behind the scenes."  Obviously Snowden has a "support network" which is global in scope--

Hong Kong lets Snowden leave in move bound to infuriate U.S. | Reuters: "A former contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency, charged by the United States with espionage, was allowed to leave Hong Kong on Sunday because the U.S. extradition request did not fully comply with the law, the Hong Kong government said. Edward Snowden left for Moscow on Sunday and his final destination may be Ecuador or Iceland, the South China Morning Post said, a move that is bound to infuriate Washington. . . ."

Obviously Snowden knows more than the rest of us as to where he is headed and why. I am surprised he left Hong Kong--I guess the Chinese government didn't want him around (perhaps they can handle only so much liberty in Hong Kong)--as Snowden is now a symbol of individual liberty against state power.
