Posted on 06/23/2013 5:44:24 AM PDT by astratt7
HONG KONG The Hong Kong government announced on Sunday afternoon that it had allowed the departure from its territory of Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who has acknowledged disclosing classified documents about United States government surveillance of Internet and telephone communications around the world. snip
The Aeroflot agent said that Mr. Snowden is traveling with one other person, with the surname Harrison, but the agent declined to release the other travelers first name, saying that she did not have the authorization to do so. The closest adviser to Julian Assange, who orchestrated the release of the Wikileaks diplomatic cables three years ago, is named Sarah Harrison, prompting speculation that she was the Harrison on the flight with Mr. Snowden.

He did us all a great service at huge personal cost
He’s almost there:
Who is this Harrison on the flight with Snowden? They are speculating in the article.
Maybe a Harrison J. Bounel reference?
I see this as more of a “Thanks for tossing us to the wolves” from Hong Kong.
Another article said possibly a Sarah Harrison - with wikileaks.
I just think it is strange that out of all of the names he could be traveling with, it would be Harrison??
Jason Bourne want-a-be...
God speed, Ed Snowden.
Here is another. She is identified as "assistant to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange".
Huh? Harrison is the name of the person traveling with him.
I just did cockpit view...he’s sitting on the captain’s lap flying the plane while sipping a gin and tonic...@ 2600 ft AGL...@ almost 200 knts....pretty daring...
Wikileaks have just confirmed on the radio,BBC, it was them that arranged the flight.
” The Hong Kong government said on Sunday, in its first detailed statement about Mr. Snowden, that the United States had made a legal request for the issue of a provisional warrant of arrest against Mr. Snowden, but that the Hong Kong government had concluded that the request did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law.”
And the Administration screws up again.......LOL
The plane is landing now.
Landed @ 0905 hrs EST...
Yes, God Speed, Edward, let’s exposé our successes against Russia and Cuba.
Thanks, Baracle. Is the app for flight tracking safe to download?
I have reliable but unconfirmed info that the Moscow destination is a transit layover to Bolivia via Havana.
Yep. I wonder if the KGB will be waiting for him at the gate.
I think so, but the fact he is being protected by hostile nations such as Russia, China, Cuba and Venezuela doesn’t sit right with me......say what you like, America is a lot more of a free country than any of them, in spite of the tyrant Obama.
It is a bit hypocritical of him to use these nations as a safe haven if he is such a moral crusader don’t you think?
You don’t need to download the app. The flights can be tracked from their website. Snowden’s plane just landed though.
At this point, the US wants him neutralized, so to prevent that, you have to go elsewhere, no?
But I am thinking this kid doesn’t much care what happens to himself at this point
I do not care how much information Snowden released or who he released it to as far as the Nation’s enemies go. Whoever it was and whatever it was they did not learn anything new or that they did not already from him. Why? Because they had already gotten the information from the occupier of the White House, obama. Whenever obama learns something that will harm the United States, in less than five minutes, the enemise of the United States are in possession of the same information. On November 6, 2012, a majority of voters approved of this. From what I read, Snowden was one of the aprovees. So whateve happens to him, I don’t care. My beef is, why isn’t obama being gone after with the same vigor that they are going after him?
ha ha US, Hong Kong is more free and has lawyers that respect the law
yeah even Putin has large reservations about obama
Russias Interfax news service, citing a person familiar with the situation, reported that Mr. Snowden would remain in transit at an airport in Moscow for several hours pending an onward flight to Cuba, and would therefore not formally cross the Russian border or be subject to detention. Someone close to Mr. Snowden later told Interfax that he planned to continue on to Caracas, Venezuela.
In this case, I suspect it is a bit of Chinese inscrutability. Their press release is a masterpiece.
How come Assange wasn’t able to mastermind his own situation and is still hanging out in an Embassy?
I don’t know what to make of Snowden. He is clearly getting significant help.
I think the point is that WE are the nations enemies. I had a UK friend, who is an Obama lover, tell me that I am not a patriot and I am an enemy of the US because I cling to the US Constutition.
I believe that we need to accect that to the Obama administration, it is WE who are their sworn enemy.
All of Obama’s moves, this term, tell me this is so.
Now, let me ask you something ~ what do the names Greenglass, Julius and Ethel mean to you?
ok that’s creepy in an NSA kind of way
This whole thing is casting doubt on the idea that Obama is part of a One World Government movement...
The world’s leaders don’t seem to respect him, or his authority, much.
The Aeroflot agent said that Mr. Snowden is traveling with one other person, with the surname Harrison... The closest adviser to Julian Assange, who orchestrated the release of the Wikileaks... is named Sarah Harrison, prompting speculation that she was the Harrison on the flight with Mr. Snowden.
I agree. This stuff with Snowden is a family fight, nothing more. Never lose sight of the fact that he is an obama worshiper and desciple.
I’m thinking a modern-day Benedict Arnold here. First he did very good but then he betrayed his country and gave aid and comfort to our enemies.
The worlds leaders dont seem to respect him, or his authority, much.
Never trust a fool or his friends.
Yeah, 'cause that's so much more important than our Constitutional rights under the 4th Amendment, isn't it? By all means, let's trash one of our cherished rights for the sake of gathering intel that could be gathered in some way other than trashing one of our cherished rights. Makes sense to me....then again, I just smoked a big, fat, bag of crack. /sarc
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The difference between Snowdon and Assange is that Snowdon is in the Big Game, and Assange is a pest.
The fascinating thing about the current iteration of the Big Game is that the teams are invisible (to us) and what’s at stake is unknown (although I suspect it’s the good old USA herself).
I kinda hope there’s a patriot team in here somewhere, but I’ve always been a hopeless romantic.
Snowdon is an OWS punk even further left than Obama.
He’s a hero of the commie countries. he’ll do as much damage to the US as he possibly can.
