Washington, DC The Al Jazeera news agency is reporting that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has safely landed in Caracas, Venezuela. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro had offered asylum to the former U.S. intelligence contractor on Friday who was believed to be waiting in transit at a Moscow airport.
Guillermo Thomas who is a spokesman for the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela told aljazeera.com that Snowden is currently in the country and that he is thrilled to be there. We are very blessed to have Mr. Snowden in our country, it is a pleasure, Thomas said. There were no direct flights across the Atlantic from Moscow to Venezuela. The only flight for Snowden to avoid U.S. extradition was to travel through Cuba. We would like to thank our friends in Cuba for making this journey possible and such a success. Thomas continued, Mr. Snowden is a hero and should be treated as one. We are pleased to provide this hero a home where he can live and be safe.

Hugo would be proud. May he rot in Hell.
Snowden was retarded to have no better plan than to end up in Venezuela.
No kidding.. Hope he brought toilet paper.
So you think he’s in Venezuela huh?
I read an article two days ago that said he had been granted asylum in Russia, was really enjoying the culture there and planned to be there long term.
His plan was that no one would know where he was at for a period of time.
He applied to tons of places for extradition and had people plant false stories about his whereabouts.
He is making the US Government look like a bunch of fools.
The most famous defector of the 21st century.
His celebrity status might bring him some enjoyment

That's because it is a joke.

Lindsay Mills new boyfriend Paul Horner told the BBC News earlier this month that Snowden couldnt handle commitment. Hes just using this whole whistleblower thing as an excuse. The truth is, Lindsay is a great girl and Snowden really blew it by leaving her, Horner said. But shes with me now and Ill make sure to take real good care of her. America is here for their women in need, especially when that woman was left by a traitor to this country.
Seems to fit with Glenn Greenwald saying yesterday that a big NSA take down story would be coming in the UK Guardian in the next few days.
Was having difficulty squaring that with Vlad Putin’s “hush to stay in Russia” conditions.
That aspect might have crossed a 30-year-old male’s mind.
Not that they needed any help............
That’s my impression of the Venezuelans I’ve met.
Very gregarious, outgoing people. And lots of beautiful women. I always assumed that parties in that country must really be something.
Always felt terrible about what Chavez had done to them.
I have my doubts, but thought posting it would clear it up pretty quick.
It’s pretty doubtful that this report is true. But if it is, it’s quite a scoop. The “National Report” beats the NYT, LAT, WP, CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, CNN, Politico and Drudge to the story. Could happen I suppose.
These days, that bar isn't set terribly high.
This story smells awfully funny.
It does. But we’re still run by fools.
Aren’t jokes supposed to be funny?
