Breaking news: that flight that NSA leaker Edward Snowden wasn’t on today has landed safely in Cuba, and Havana-based CNN correspondent Patrick Oppmann was there to greet it.

CNN’s Phil Black was on the flight and reported that there was no sign of Snowden. We’ll take his word for it, since he had about 16 hours to search the plane.
