Snowden blew it. After his leaks, he should have turned himself in with press in tow and said he was ready to face any punishment in an attempt save his country from tyranny.
The public uproar would have been massive and influential on the govt.
Now hes got no path forward thats any good, and hes in danger from not only the US govt, but every govt he approaches for succor.
Snowden is about to get an education on the George Wills Law:
America is an imperfect country surrounded by atrocious countries.
