Danger, Man: Greenwald Returning to USA Tomorrow

Glenn has smartly stayed away, post-Snowden, but may be on flight now, or in a few hours, to make tomorrow's Polk Awards ceremony (it's always a good one from past) when he gets one of the biggies.  Laura Poitras also coming for it from Berlin.   Greenwald, from Mike Calderone's piece just now:
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Greenwald said he’s motivated to return because “certain factions in the U.S. government have deliberately intensified the threatening climate for journalists.”
“It’s just the principle that I shouldn’t allow those tactics to stop me from returning to my own country,” Greenwald said.
Greenwald suggested government officials and members of Congress have used the language of criminalization as a tactic to chill investigative journalism.
