Snowden is a hero, and now he is working to support Russia's effort to protect its people in Ukraine! Soon the Russian Army will complete the liberation of the Russian nationals in Ukraine and all with the help of Snowden! He has tremendously boosted the Russian security services! He is hero to the world!

From the AP Story

a weakness in the exchange's systems was behind a massive loss of the virtual currency involving 750,000 bitcoins from users and 100,000 of the company's own bitcoins. That would amount to about $425 million at recent prices.

The reactions of the various Japanese government officials are interesting. Essentially, there was no "theft" because Bitcoin is not a "real" currency. Which is an interesting attack. Anyone can steal your bitcoins and you have no recourse to the law because it isn't actually theft.
