NSA leaker Edward Snowden said he went to Hong Kong before his ideal asylum country because "Iceland could be pushed harder, quicker, before the public could have a chance to make their feelings known, and I would not put that past the current U.S. administration." Now that the time is right, Snowden has made his intentions known to Iceland "in an informal way," via WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson. Most successful relationships start as casual friendships, so no need to rush into anything, except for the international manhunt likely underway.
