Cancelation of the passport wasn't just an effort to prevent the whistleblower from getting to a country that might grant political asylum. It was also a declaration that the U.S. government can nullify the right to travel just as surely as it can nullify the right to privacy.

What Manning, Snowden and Assange did for us is more than the thousands of NGO's, the United Nations and all those 'good-hearted' organizations have failed to do in a hundred years. These men have given us information.

What's behind Piñera's cautious handling of the Snowden affair? Perhaps, the Chileans envy Washington's eavesdropping capabilities and want to secure greater access to the PRISM program. Or maybe, Santiago has been working with Washington all along.
