I wonder how his privacy is being treated in Russia. However he's communicating with the outside world, I doubt Russian authorities are listening in. ROFLMAO....I crack myself up.

So now it is official Edward Snowden is a man without a country and neither Assange or Greenwald can help him, so now what, how much would Putin need to hand over Edward Snowden? The Russian leader holds the two aces in the poker game of spy vs spy it all comes down to who welds the better hand! Syria is only a side distraction compared to Snowden walking right into Putin's hands......

Ad Snowden dealt the cards and lost.  Ironic, isn't it.

He's still on the run and he's still front page news. For a man whose stated objective was to get attention for this issue he's hardly losing. Its not like he doesn't know that he'll get renditioned one way or the other.

I am sorry BUT, this man is a Traitor. He went in with the specific idea of releasing Classified Information on a program that has been in existence for OVER 10 years. But unlike Bush, Obama has instructed his people to stay within the confines of the Patriot Act and use the FISA court.

What I can see happening is one day this man will give the information he has to Russia or Cuba or someone else and he will be killed and the host country will try to blame the USA. That way they get the information AND discredit the USA at the same time.

I hate to tell you people this but the fact is the PHONE BOOK has more personnel information on YOU then the NSA was gathering. In addition the Cable Companies, the Utility Companies the Phone Companies and THIS SITE sell more of your Personnel information every single day than the NSA had access to. You can thank those companies for the junk mail and the spam e mails that are loaded with a virus.

I'm sorry but you are a victim of the PR blitz that our political elites have launched. You are focusing on the wrong shiny object. Our government's most valued intelligent assets have been outsourced for profit not patriotism. You are seeing a reductio ad absurdum argument against privatizing the government playing out before your very eyes and you have been distracted from that. Too bad, I bet you think that what you are thinking is patriotic, unfortunately it is just what the profit making corporations that have metastasized inside our government want you to think. Keep your eye on the shiny object. Good citizen.

Well the storie continues because they sure are not going to take him out in Russia, to cause the next Cold War. Its not the information or even the quality of the person of character its how the story is spun, Its called Propaganda and China and Russia are making the most. What a Great American???

How does Russia, China and Ecuador treat such people? Hmmmn?
08:31 AM on 06/26/2013
Come on Ecuador!! Do you want two guys living with your ambassadors in both London and Moscow?! That seems silly. Just let him fly to Ecuador while you decide.

After all, he has Ecuador refugee papers. Wait, maybe this is a ruse.

Russia would likely not admit Snowden to make his way to an embassy in Moscow. Given that he's been "in transit" for several days this sleeping-in-the-airport plan also can't go on for much longer. That he has papers allowing him to travel to Ecuador doesn't explain why he'd be seeking to enter Russia.

Regarding London, Ecuador has little choice. Assange is wanted in the UK for failing to keep his bail conditions, and there's no way out of the embassy to the airport that doesn't pass through the UK. He's not going to be recognized as an Ecuadorian diplomat, and so on leaving the embassy he'd be arrested, and deported to Sweden.

No way Putin stops him from going to E's embassy in Moscow. Snowden is way too popular in Russia and Putin would look like a ham.

You say: "Assange is wanted in the UK for failing to keep his bail conditions". What bail, he has never been charged. He is only wanted for "questioning" (read waterboarding in the US).
08:31 AM on 06/26/2013
Well, the traitor will have a good fun time with Putin's security guys. Let me guess, they are having a lovely chat with him since he put a step in their airport. Well, is there any one that argues Putin's guys have respect, even a little bit, for the rule of law. Nay. That traitor had a small mind to think that he can keep the secrets he stole from the American people. Well, Let me guess, Putin and his guys will get each bit of the traitor stole. What a looser.

He may be learning now that, in Russia, water-boarding is how the KGB showers themselves in the morning, just to get ready to interrogate you.

...or, that in Russia, it's not "water-board" but "water-bored". You know, because after the rest of the stuff they do to you, water-boarding is actually a bit boring. I really couldn't decide which torture joke to go with here

I take a more optimistic approach. Finally, the government is listening to my complaints! Since our votes mean nothing--we have the choice of two candidates vetted by the Business Roundtable and the USCoC--this is our one way of getting our government to listen to our complaints. The only way to handle this situation is to tell everyone you know how illegitimate you feel the current leadership is. If everyone plays along this has two salutary effects: (1) they can't arrest all of us and (2) they might finally realize how much illegitimacy they have acquired in the last 3 decades. Hammer them boys and girls. Put some political vitriol in your email sig file even. Call up random people and make a political speech. Make the spies pull the headphones off and toss them across the room in disgust. ;-)

I read somewhere that in the former Soviet Union everyone felt like they were being spied on but only a very small percentage really were, but everyone felt inhibited to say negative things about the government.They don't have nearly enough employees to be able to read the boring emails of 300,000,000 people. It's impossible.

Hmmm like it. But is truth always free and simply in need of liberation? Or can truth be in-slaved and thus be bereft of both?
