Asylum Offered to Snowden by Venezuela
Guardian (UK) ^ | July 5, 2013. | A. James

Venezuela-5

Nicolas Maduro, the President of Venezuela, is the first head of state to make a formal offer to give NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden asylum.  Snowden is believed to be continuing his ‘limbo’ at the Moscow airport.

“I have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to the young American, Edward Snowden, so that in the fatherland of (Simon) Bolivar and (Hugo) Chavez, he can come and live away from the imperial North American persecution,” Maduro told a televised parade marking Venezuela’s independence day.

Snowden continues to be sought by the American government, and charges against him may include treason.

And you are surprised at this? Marxist-left Nicaragua (Daniel Ortega) has made a similar offer. And we are surprised at this too?

Communists are communists, period.

He’s a hot potato, and I’d give him 2:1 odds that he’ll wind up back in the US and on trial.

Thanks Ernest.

Well, let`s see,

we have obama, or soetoro, or whatever his name is openly stating he was going to transform the USA. Just what do you think that means,spying on every email, every keyboard stroke, every phone call,

we have John Kerry, aka jean pierre, with FAKE purple hearts gone yachting while obama/soetoro`s muslim caliphate burns,

we have hillary clinton, scam cattle future deals, mysterious deaths,

we have a guy who helped expose their direct complete and total violation of the 4th Amendment.

Gee, who`s the bad guy.

If he is really an honest guy, he’ll be one very sorry person if he winds up in one of these totalitarian countries. If he isn’t an honest guy, he’ll likewise be one very sorry person is he winds up in one of these totalitarian countries.
