Hong Kong spat upon Obama Administration [AP excerpt]:
Snowden's departure, which came a day after the United States made a formal request for his extradition and gave a pointed warning to Hong Kong against delaying the process of returning him to face trial in the U.S.
The Hong Kong government said in a statement that Snowden left "on his own accord for a third country through a lawful and normal channel."
It acknowledged the U.S. extradition request, but said U.S. documentation did not "fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law." It said additional information was requested from Washington, but since the Hong Kong government "has yet to have sufficient information to process the request for provisional warrant of arrest, there is no legal basis to restrict Mr. Snowden from leaving Hong Kong."
The statement said Hong Kong had informed the U.S. of Snowden's departure. It added that it wanted more information about alleged hacking of computer systems in Hong Kong by U.S. government agencies which Snowden had revealed.
lol, good for Hong Kong.
Richard Haas on ABC said it damaged our relationship with China. Calls him a felon, not a whistleblower. Says polls are showing people want him prosecuted.
Martha Radditz mocks Snowden and this desire for freedom and ending up in Venezuala.
Snowden is a Red Herring.
Meanwhile Obie is on the beach.
Nothing about this Snowden guy makes sense.
