Ah, the intrigue surrounding the Edward Snowden saga continues unrelentingly.

President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, while in Moscow attending an energy conference said in an interview his country would consider asylum for Snowden (even though he hadn't applied for it) and in an offhand remark suggested he would be happy to host him.

Well you'd think Morales had let the cat out of the bag the way some countries in Europe reacted to the "possibility" Snowden might be in the company of Morales in his flight back to La Paz.

Only first consider this:

All foreign officials attending diplomatic meetings in Moscow arrive and depart from Vnukovo Airport, not Sheremetyevo where Snowden has been residing in the international transit area since arriving from Hong Kong eleven days ago.

Morales plane would have had to fly from Vnukovo to Sheremetyevo to pick up Snowden and somehow escort onto the plane, whisking him past Russian immigration with reporters stationed 24/7 outside the transit area without being noticed.
