How the hunt for Edward Snowden, and bad information, stranded Bolivian president

The diplomatic row between the U.S. and Bolivia began before Friday, when Bolivian President Evo Morales started talking about kicking out the U.S. Embassy. It began before airspace was closed to Morales’ jet, forcing him to spend 13 hours in Vienna during a trip home from Moscow. According to Russian news reports, it began when a U.S. official failed to notice that the target of the hunt – former NSA contractor Edward Snowden – was at one airport and the Bolivian presidential jet was taking off from another, about 35 miles away.
