Ooh, I like this one
 
2013-08-01 09:13:45 AM  
Hee Haw!
How long will he last?

Spilburg seen burning his script for The Terminal 2.
 
2013-08-01 09:14:41 AM  
This one? Really?  The other headline was better.  Anyway, I'll repeat what I said there.

And now he can disappear into some little town near Krasnoyarsk and we'll never hear of  him again.

2013-08-01 09:15:06 AM  
So...he finally got that date with Anna?

Good luck bro. Crazy times we live in.
 
2013-08-01 09:16:33 AM  
didn't we know this was happening though?

Good headline, doesn't need a News Flash
 
2013-08-01 09:16:54 AM  
Better than my submission. I'll admit it.
 
2013-08-01 09:17:44 AM  
I'm glad he's managed to find a country whose human rights record is a shining beacon to the rest of the world from which to continue his campaign
 
2013-08-01 09:18:29 AM  
Well, good for him.

I guess.

If he's smart he'll go back to the airport tomorrow and hop on a plane to Venezuela.

as long as he doesn't anger Putin, he'll be OK.  Putin may snap at any minute though.

That would work except to get there he has to either lay off in a country that isn't offering asylum and hope they let him get back on a plane or risk crossing over western airspace where his flight will be met with some very friendly F16s

More bad news for Obama, he doesn't get to kill Snowden.
 
2013-08-01 09:22:55 AM  
Damn! I was planning on going down to Dulles Airport on Saturday and standing outside the international arrival gate while holding a sign with SNOWDEN written on it.
 
2013-08-01 09:23:09 AM  
First thing I would do is look up a certain redhead spy.

And as he's talked about how he has given several people encrypted copies of everything he took when he left and instructions to release it all if anything happens to him, i'm sure that Russia has absolutely no motive to make him disappear.

that looks like a St. Bernard.  He loves it because it brings him booze.

Still don't see why people care so much.
How stupid do you have to be to believe that someone somewhere isn't monitoring or at least recording some kind of information on you.

Maybe they sent him to.....*extra dramatic pause*.....The Charm School
 
2013-08-01 09:27:36 AM  
What are the odds that he ticks the Russians off and ends up in a wonderful resort like Black Dolphin?

Again, it's hard for us to take the moral high road, what with our decade-plus-long history of "extraordinary rendition", illegal prisons, torturing of both domestic and foreign prisoners, and remote-control assassinations. We gave up that moral high road when we decided to act like the folks we claimed we were fighting.

If so, I'm sure they are dying of boredom.

Better question is  how much of a juvenile narcissist do you have to be to believe anyone cares specifically about what you're up to?

Right.  So the US can shut up about any abuse anywhere, because we no longer have the right to criticize or stop abuses.

It's not surprising to know that the U.S. was spying on other nations.
It's not surprising that the U.S. was spying on suspected terrorist cells, known sympathizers in both the U.S. and in other nations
It's not surprising to know that other nations have been spying on the U.S.
It is expected to know that the U.S. government makes it their duty to spy on suspected enemies and known enemies.

What does it mean when the U.S. government is openly spying on it's own citizens?  That the U.S. government thinks of it's own citizens as potential enemies is the answer that I have a hard time avoiding.

It's not about me.  It's the the information can be misused in the political and industrial arenas.

what if he isn't real?  what if its like that south park episode where the govt wants people to believe its involved in that thing that happened in NY in sept.?  what if this is the govt telling the world that they see it all, and have teamed up w Russia?  WHAT IF?!?!?

As Snowden was leaving the Moscow airport, he muttered "this is for Trayvon".

Hopefully he assumes room temperature or ends up in US custody soon, along with his lawyers - preferably alive long enough to be shown as captured.

If I had any chance to turn him in, I would and with pleasure - as one would turn any common criminal.

I must be reading a different post by Formless One.  No one's saying you can't speak out against abuses or violations of human rights, all he's saying is that you should get off your U.S.A! U.S.A! high horse before doing it since no one's hands are completely clean in this arena.

Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye. - Matthew 7:5
