FILE - In this Saturday, May 31, 2008 file photo, a view across Reykjavík in Iceland from Öskjuhlíd Hill. In recent years the country has welcomed eccentric chess master Bobby Fischer, WikiLeaks secret-spiller Julian Assange and the online freedom advocates of the Pirate Party. Could its next guest be NSA leaker Edward Snowden? In an interview outing himself as the source behind stories about the U.S. spy agency's online surveillance programs, Snowden floated the idea of heading to Reykjavik. He told The Guardian newspaper that he was inclined to seek asylum in a country that shared his values _ and "the nation that most encompasses this is Iceland." (AP Photo/Kirsty Wigglesworth, File)
