Edward Snowden seeks asylum in Russia, issues ‘statement’ through Wikileaks
Blabbermouth Edward Snowden is now seeking asylum in
the Soviet Union Russia. That may be a good idea since now even Ecuador wants nothing to do with him. He also released a statement via Wikileaks concerning his current predicament that many are questioning whether he actually wrote it.
In the statement, Snowden whines that Obama revoked his passport, making him a “stateless” person. As if having a U.S. passport was a right and not a privilege.
What did he think was going to happen when he ran off to China with top-secret, classified documents? I think it’s odd that someone working as a private contractor for the NSA was allowed to keep his passport in his own possession. One sure way to ensure a private contractor working for the NSA isn’t going to gallivant off to a foreign country with classified information is to hold his or her passport in safe keeping. Afterall, he was supposed to get permission first before leaving the country. Holding his passport would have been a good way of ensuring he got that permission.
Oh well, maybe next time.
Snowden of course isn’t a stateless person. He is a citizen of the United States of America. His country wants him to return home so that he can take responsibility for his actions. He’s hiding out in a Moscow airport terminal because he chooses to do so. If he wasn’t such a coward, he would come home and face the repercussions for what he did.
I have zero sympathy or respect for Edward Snowden.
