.... when the U.S. asked the semiautonomous Chinese city for Snowden's provisional arrest, its response was essentially this: Who exactly do you mean?
Justice Secretary Rimsky Yuen said Hong Kong officials weren't sure who to look for because the U.S. government got Snowden's middle name wrong in documents filed to back its arrest request.
He said Hong Kong immigration records listed Snowden's middle name as Joseph, but the U.S. government used the name James in some documents and referred to him only as Edward J. Snowden in others. ...............
Yuen said U.S. authorities also failed to provide Snowden's passport number. He said officials received the arrest request on June 15 and sent a request June 21 for clarification. Two days later, Snowden flew to Moscow.
"Up until the moment of Snowden's departure, the very minute, the U.S. Department of Justice did not reply to our request for further information.

Wonderful leaders we have. I trust them implicitly.
I wonder if they tie their own shoes, or do they have some lowly serf to do that for them?

Unless of course, this was fabricated by Hong Kong as an excuse to allow Snowden to 'escape' ?
