Snowden Isn't A Series--Is He?

If Edward Snowden is alive, then he's got a REALLY BIG PROBLEM:

["The Moscow-Havana flight goes over Europe and the U.S., which could cause complications. Some European countries refused to allow Bolivian President Evo Morales to fly through their airspace on his way home from Moscow last week because of suspicions that Snowden was onboard his plane."]--Huffington Post




The following words were originally published in the comment section on The Guardian website:
This may not be well-received by the majority of your readers, Mr. Greenwald...but I'm not entirely comfortable with how this is playing out.
Something is wrong.
First of all, if it is so important to "get the truth out there"...why did you wait until now to release the second part of the Hong Kong interview?
This is a loaded question, and I for one, would like a straight answer to it...not just from your readers (who can only speculate)...but from you.
It makes no sense, beyond "selling papers" and pleasing advertisers, to wait until now to trot out this "new" segment of Ed Snowden's original commentary.
You are treating this situation like a made-for-TV mini-series and parceling it out in episodes. I want to know why.
This isn't a fictional, script-driven (is it?) production...it's straight down to the pavement serious.
So why did you wait until now to share this "new" segment from that old interview?
This whole scenario is beginning to resemble an outtake from the movie, "Weekend At Bernie's." 
"Let's make him look alive and everybody will think that he is."

(Appearing, again, in the following video, everybody but Eddy)


Wikileaks  published a statement that was supposedly written by (in Moscow) Edward Snowden. But we were only provided with a "verification" of who wrote that piece, by Wikileaks.
Now you are dropping parts of the Hong Kong interview, like bread crumbs, onto a path of erratic enlightenment.
What's really going on here, Glenn?
I can't even imagine why Ed Snowden would want the second half of his video statement to be shared with everyone...a month after the first part was.
Give me a plausible explanation, Glenn. This I've got to hear.
