Skip to comments.Snowden heads to Venezuela via Moscow, Havana: airline source
Posted on 06/23/2013 8:14:12 AM PDT by markomalley
Former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden will fly from Moscow to Cuba on Monday and then plans to go to Venezuela, a source at the Russian airline Aeroflot said on Sunday.
The source said Snowden was already on his way to Moscow from Hong Kong and would leave for Havana within 24 hours.
The South China Morning Post also reported that Snowden had left Hong Kong for Moscow and that his final destination might be Ecuador or Iceland. The WikiLeaks anti-secrecy website said Snowden was heading for an unnamed "democratic nation".
The flight to Moscow prompted speculation that Snowden might remain in Russia, whose leaders accuse the United States of double standards on democracy and have championed public figures who challenge Western governments.
But Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said he was unaware of Snowden's plans and the Foreign Ministry declined immediate comment on whether he had asked for asylum.

Yes! I think the “red” Russian plane PROVES he is working for “red” China!!!!!!!!!
Both have “red” in the name!
Russia has always been Imperialistic, even in the days of the Czars.
There is a USSR, Snowden is a traitor, and China, which made your underwear and socks, is an enemy! Where have I landed, in a parallel universe?
At first he seemed like a breath of fresh air, but it now appears he is a spy giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Drone the bastard.
Just heard the State Department has invalidated Snowden’s passport.
Oh, that'll work. /s
A lot of ex-pats are heading to Ecuador. International Living magazine has rated Ecuador number one overall for ex-pats. I wonder how long a small nation could hold out against the NSA? I would think that the NSA could threaten a small country with a version of the Stuxnet aimed at the power grid or communications system. And if the NSA tries to pull some crap like this, expect a likewise response from China, Russia or an anonymous group of hackers against the US.
A Muslim US dictator in control of the NSA; this story will not end well I fear.
No doubt this guy is in with the leftists now, but what the government is doing to all of us by collecting all the data about our phone calls, internet use etc. etc. is wrong.
Does anyone really trust the present Administration with all that information????????
The best solution is for no government of any party to be doing this.....
The State Department has notified the Russian Interior Ministry and the FSB that they want Snowden deported back to the USA or surrendered to US authorities in Moscow (the CIA station chief at the US Embassy there).
Best thing to do is red-flag him on INTERPOL, and that might be next; that only takes one phone call to INTERPOL HQ.
If I were POTUS, I’d pull a Reagan and intercept the jet he’s on and force it to land either in the US or a friendly country and take him into custody.
This idiot should be killed
Elections have consequences....Next time, choose wisely, America.
Currently, Americans seem to favor Hilary who couldn’t even run a single department. But she is a powerful, cunning and manipulative leftist and could therefore do more damage to this country than even the empty suit Obama.
When it come to "our interests," I'd like to suggest a true American motto; "Duty, Honor, Country!"
Snowden's revealing Obama led corruption is doing service to our country.
A thread this am said he was given new papers thru the wiki leaks crew! That would invalidate his US papers!
Maybe even a new identity????
Still say he was/is CIA. And is being used as a payback for what DC did to Petraeus He hasn’t said anything that wasn’t told by previous whistleblowers. Did you see the WB on “her Aldo “ last night. 0 is charging anyone who questions what is going on with treason ! Time to get all of them together on a very public forum.
I don’t think it’d stop Snowden either, but it definitely makes it that much harder for him not to make a mistake. It’s only one piece of the puzzle of how he’ll end up back in US hands.
Not sure about that, population 300k is not enough.
Those IP's look like HK citizens, not PRC IP's. HK citizens are the ones who are anti tyrant. The PRC would be the ones who are the tyrants.
I reserve my judgement.
