National Security Agency officials are considering a controversial amnesty that would return Edward Snowden to the United States, in exchange for the extensive document trove the whistleblower took from the agency.
An amnesty, which does not have the support of the State Department, would represent a surprising denouement to an international drama that has lasted half a year. It is particularly unexpected from a surveillance agency that has spent months insisting that Snowdens disclosures have caused vast damage to US national security.

Sounds like a trick.
Yeah, come on back we’ll even give you a new car with ALL the latest electronics...
He just needs to change his name to “Eduardo Nevado”; they’ll let him sneak across our southern border.
The stuff he has must be explosive.
Yes, he is evil.
But you notice they go after Snowden and avoid the little faggot who did the same thing.
Actually, I consider Snowden a bit of a hero here for disclosing just how much the NSA has been intruding upon our freedoms. I would think that they just might give him amnesty if he stops giving away our secrets.
Never go by what the Government says...
Sorry, but I feel that he has done our Country a service with his disclosures. These things would never have been known without him - and I do understand that it also hurts our intelligence gathering but it is worth it to let America know the extent of their surveillance.
Things have been going way overboard lately (Maybe with this Government group or maybe Government in general). Once it starts, it will rarely be scaled back. We need folks in Government that will take chances and tell us the truth.
“The stuff he has must be explosive.”
Not as explosive as his brand new Mercedes will be...
Anyone from the NSA, FBI, CIA, Obama Administration, yadda, yadda who thinks that Snowden's going to turn over his one and only copy of all the documents he has is seriously effed in the head.
Anything Snowden had the Russians now have -- the cost of Putin allowing Snowden to remain there without being extradited.
Either that, or Snowden's got a copy of the entire document cache waiting somewhere to be released should the US Government take him into custody and imprison him.
That is, if he's smart.
This guy would be on the Today Show, Oprah Winfrey show, The View, as well as top billing at all the liberal cocktail parties had he done this to the Bush administration.
And NSA has the authority to offer amnesty?? How is that?
Upon detonation, copies of those documents will magically re-appear at major media outlets throughout the United States for publication and airing.
He must have something big if they are serious. And of course, the “amnesty” would require him to never say a word about it, ever.
Also, they are retarded enough to think that by offering amnesty, the Russians will be forced to extradite him. After all, if all is forgiven,,,,.
But I think neither Snowden nor the Russians will be played quite so obtusely.
Russia was the right choice. Probably the only country that is not an ally that we wouldn’t dare send a drone.
You're right - he would have been toast of the town...
