Wise choice. Ecuador was a poor choice IMO.
It must be a rational choice. Neither Bolivia nor Venezuela are able to guarantee him safety in a long run. Cuba and Russia are a different story but Cuba can’t offer desired quality of living. Bad thing is in other news Putin said he don’t like to see a useless traitor there.
I wonder what his view is on gay rights: for marriage adoption.
I would expect him to be liberal on social issues coming from here (Maryland).
He must be seeking asylum away from the gays by emigrating to Putin’s Russia.
Four threads down from this one Putin says “Snowden not welcome in Russia.”
Definitely stay away from Cuber.
Strange statement. If they're travelling together and Snowden is in Moscow, then the activist must be in Moscow as well.
Now which country in the world has a consulate on its own soil? None, to my knowledge.
If that punk ever sets foot on American soil again...
Russian intelligence may have suggested he secure a job with USIS, the NSA contractor, for the purpose of collecting anything that might be useful. Snowden made his revelation about U.S. hacking of Chinese secrets just days before Obama was to meet with the Chinese head of state. At that meeting Obama was supposed to bring up the issue of Chinese hacking.
So if Snowden has been working for the Russians for six years they get a load of NSA secrets, they damage the NSA surveillance program, plus they get to embarrass the U.S. and Obama with an international scandal.
