Could this have legitimately had the Ironic tag? Any deciders of irony want to weigh in?

Hope he's russian over there.

All three of them?

I doubt he'd do it. He's a patriot, not a counter-agent.

Why would you offer a wanted criminal from one of your allies asylum?

I mean, just because the guy has top secret information, and apparently a working knowledge of intelligence gathering procedures...

And by 'asylum' he means 'rape camp in Siberia'.

In my day, he wouldn't have been called a 'wanted criminal'... he'd be called a 'defector'.

I'd consider it if they offer me a mini-giraffe as well.

Yes, and Putin would have been the Premier. The Premier of the Soviet Union. And the world would have made more sense, and we'd fight proxy wars in places like Afghanistan and Syria.

He should do it then troll the NSA with dash cam videos

Better dead than red? McCarthyism? That day?

Mr. Snowden is now learning what it means to be a real American hero, don't take my word for it go ask one of the veterans out in the street begging for change.

Snowden is just an attention whore. He could have remained anonymous but NO, like most narcissists he wants recognition for his genius.

This doesn't help his cause nor his career.

That's the one thing I really don't understand about this.  He's been working for the NSA for years, had no problem taking their money.  So much, in fact, that he could easily pick up his entire life and move to Hong Kong.

Somewhere along the line he suddenly decided that he was compromising his morals?!  Really?!

His coming out about the NSA's activities is going to have exactly ZERO effect.  Nothing is going to change.  So other than totally ruining his life, what did he really accomplish?

I hear he made the news. There will be congressional hearings. That's something.

I don't know. We have no idea what is going on in the man's head. Let's see what happens when people start throwing around big dollar signs and then we'll find out how much of a patriot he is.

jayhawk88: All three of them?


1.) the freedom to drink vodka without all these nanny-state health warnings
2.) probably some other stuff maybe
3.) profit! (for the state)

/I dont know much about Russia

In Russia, freedom enjoys you!

They already knew who he was. Outing himself to the public was a smart move. Not for credit, but because now he can't just mysteriously disappear without it looking bad.

The United States does not eliminate American citizens. Hits are for Hollywood movies.  We just arrest traitors like Snowden and throw in some bogus charges on top of his treason to make sure the traitor rots in jail and serves as a rotting reminder to the Bradley manning's of the world to behave.

It's probably not the greatest idea to accept asylum from someone who's just trying to troll the U.S. On the other hand, maybe he'd become a celebrity in Russia (so long as he didn't try any whistleblowing there) and get to join Putin on his action hero LARPing adventures.

Hey, it works for Defatdieu.  He can sell his secrets; I don't understand why you folks hate bootstrappy entrepreneurship.  Do you think Ayn Rand wouldn't cash in?

That is no longer strictly true, but as long as he's in Hong Kong or Iceland, we probably won't be so ballsy as to do it with drones.

He gets hot women apparently. Why not go to Russia, they mint a shiat ton of them in the western part. Amazingly hot women in porn from there.

If he's headed to Siberia, he might get snowedin.

Can't people have remorse for their actions?

I've been there. It's not a nice place to live and you probably wouldn't like it.
