The rumor in certain circles is that since late April, Edward’s had contact via couriers with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsim_Tung_Brother_Cream in Kowloon.
Of course this might simply be unsubstantiated speculation.
But I must admit the theory’s plausibility given BC’s disappearance last year in what was widely thought to have been an extraordinary rendition and his subsequent achievement of release with the aid of widespread media coverage and civil society pressure for which arrangements had been made in advance.
He might have been advising Snowden on strategy in the run-up to revelation, and perhaps is continuing to do so.
It should be noted that some contend, especially in light of the speed with which he was released and the fact that he was never formally indicted by law enforcement, that BC is actually working in cooperation with authorities as a bait of sorts.
I suppose we’ll only know with time and ongoing public scrutiny of developments.
