Miranda reportedly had a password printed on a piece of paper. And a big chunk hasn't been decrypted.

Or the laptop was on and unencrypted at the time of its confiscation.
Yeah, "enemies" such as Miranda.
Fortunately for those in power, that term has a malleability that would make silly putty jealous.
I find it regrettable that Snowden sought asylum. If he had stayed in the united states, faced trial by jury, and won his freedom, it would have set a precedent for other whistleblowers to follow. His asylum will make whistleblowers think they have to give up everything to expose the government's crimes. The precedent he set is almost as bad as if he had stayed in the united states and been found guilty of capital treason.
You mean like Manning?
The chance of that happening was never one jot above zero.
