So he's trading his six-figure salary and citizenship for a Moscow apartment? Let him.  A few months of 20 below zero and he'll hijack a plane to Guantanamo.

But.  But.  I was assured that Snowden's main concerns were FREEDOM.  Why would he try for asylum in Russia, then?

FTA:

Putin, speaking at a press conference after a meeting of gas exporting countries, reiterated that Russia would not extradite Snowden to the US. "Russia never gives anyone up and doesn't plan to give anyone up. And no one has ever given us anyone."

Later, he added, 'Russia will never let you down, will never run around and desert you,' before putting on a pair of shades and high-fiving his press attache.

I thought Russia already said they didn't want him.

Hope he likes living in Russia forever.  He's gonna be dreaming about Hawaii before long.

Pluses:  hawtness of Russian women and caviar.

Negatives:  long winters, track suits, the Russian language and onion breath.

Good thing he isn't brown, I hear they don't like foreigners at all.

Putin said on Monday: "If he wants to go somewhere and someone will take him, go ahead. If he wants to stay here, there is one condition - he must stop his work aimed at bringing harm to our American partners, as strange as that sounds coming from my mouth."


yes, that does sound strange coming from you, glad you're aknowledging it

Could it be that Putin is the only one honest enough to admit that they're all lying to everyone?

I think that's why the EU data dump today... Greens in Germany are putting pressure on the CDU to grant him asylum... they see his disclosure as a service to them, and they are definitely not on the US "side" on this topic. Ecuador is out, but more doors are opening slowly as a result of greater disclosure. Frankly, unless we want to keep losing friends and trade agreements, we should consider just pardoning him.

Those cannot be your only shoes. What am I saying? It's Russia. People probably come from miles around just to get their picture taken in those.

So I can't stay for dinner. I assume that smell is cabbage and not just you two.

Russia should let him in.  And then put him in a cell adjacent to the Pussy Riot prisoners.

In light of all the disclosure, especially the spying on EU resources and phones, this will never happen.  Obama/NSA took what Bush did 3 steps further, and alot of folks are kinda pissed.  They should be, or they shouldn't be because they have nothing to hide.....derp.

Did what they did prevent terrst attacks and damage?  Hard to know now that the spin machines are/is out of f*cking control.  PRISM is very old news.  But everyone previously with their heads up their ass or in the sand have been poked and poutrage is the soup of the day.

I hate to break it to you but all these policies started under Bush, and Bush actually was the one who technically (I say technically because I still think the whole thing is illegal) broke the law by performing wiretapping without a warrant.

And let's face it, if a Republican was president you'd be all for this.

I am aware of the gap between what should be and what is... I am just of the mindset that a pardon at this point could mitigate the risk of future leaks from him (and subsequent new charges). Mad or not, going after Snowden does not undo any damage, nor does it substantially change the likelihood of future occurrences.

I was responding to his post, specifically the part where he said it was Bush + 3 steps further, I'd say that's relevant.

And you're irrelevant for calling my post irrelevant.
