EL UNIVERSAL Monday July 08, 2013 03:37 PM The White House warned on Monday that former CIA staff Edward Snowden may not be allowed to travel to any other country but the United States.

The statement came after the US citizen was recently offered asylum by Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Bolivia.

The US Government keeps in touch through relevant diplomatic channels with all countries Snowden could travel across or choose for his final destination, said White House's spokesperson Jay Carney, EFE reported.

Carney's statement has been the first official US reaction after Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Venezuela recently offered Snowden asylum.

Carney further explained there were sufficient legal arguments for Russia to expel Snowden to the United States, despite the lack of any extradition bilateral treaty.

Putin knows he has strong support in the U.S., and he’s not going to do anything to hurt that reputation. Obama’s screwed.

I suggest the Russian Air Force provide cover for the commerical jet. If Bathouse Barry wants to launch World War III to keep the world from learning about his fake birth certificate then let him do it. I don’t think a Russian Bear is afraid for the Rainbow Warriors Little Pony Fight Club.

Putin could give the guy a fighter escort and be done with it.

Here's a glimpse of what Snowden has revealed.

BiG BROTHER has more than a foothold folks..

----------------------------------------------------------------

"MIT's
Immersion project sifts your Gmail, and constructs a map of your associations. Without opening a single message, it gives a clear view of who you connect with. It's a glimpse of some of what the NSA PRISM can do.

 
From the article: 'You can assume that if the NSA is looking at your email, the information in Immersion is similar to what they will see. Consider that they probably see all of your email addresses (and not just Gmail) and that the metadata is examined along with the metadata from everyone you’ve corresponded with, and you can see just how much can be inferred from this data alone.'"

To be fair to our hard-working public servants, somebody here ought to report to the White Hut (via its website?) that its enforcer is wide awake!

Someone tell this asshat that people in another country need not follow Obama’s delusions of grandeur.

I think that the behavior of the Administration is probably having opposite of their stated, desired effect. My guess is that these three countries want so badly to be the one to shove a sharp stick in the US's eye that Snowden's probably making them engage in a bidding war for where he eventually goes.

Snowden told Greenwald he has already stashed the secrets all over the world, even if he ends up in gitmo.

This sounds all for show...

“If we were discussing any other fugitive, this boilerplate language would be recognized for what it is: standard legal instructions.
But because it is Magical Wonderboy, to whom rules and regulations do not apply the way they do to lesser mortals, these statements are being treated as if they were unprecedentedly unjust.”

I assume you mean Obama..

Consider this your opportunity to be ‘wide awake’ and debate a White House official. But next time they should send over a smarter thug to debate Freepers. This guy isn’t up-to-standard.

Really?..... Do I have to spell out the absolute absurdity of killing hundreds of innocents for the sake of one person who is accused of crimes? Are you that myopic that you can’t see it or are you so blind for revenge that the ends justify the means? Either way you are fooling yourself if you think downing a civilian aircraft will happen.

I don't know what dime store law school you profess to have graduated from but you failed to receive a sufficient education in law. Your assertions are incorrect and you appear foolish in your argument about what sovereign nations can do. I suggest you only speak about what you know about instead of what you think you learned at whatever that law school was you attended.

To Drew H. What about a ship? Didn’t I hear way, way back in school about Aaron Burr (I think, was a long time ago), the man without a country. He lived the rest of his life on a ship because no country would give him entry. Couldn’t Snowden get on a ship headed to Cuba or Venezuela. As long as it stayed in international waters until it reached its destination, he should get safe passage???

No, Americans did not vote for a criminal to occupy the White House for 8 years. Parasites, jackboot lickers, and Obama disciples and worshipers did. Unfortunately, there are now more of those types in the U.S now than Americans.

The fact that this is Carney-boy issuing the ‘warning” tells me that it’s all for shits and giggles. If this were a real warning it would be issued via back channels, I think.

And what’s the difference between PRISM and the Immersion Project and LinkedIn, which goes through each and every one of your email contacts (and probably emails, too) to look for ‘linkages’ between people.

You gotta read those “Terms and Conditions” before you join social networking websites. They are NO different than the federal government. You have ZERO privacy when you join them.

I do NOT belong to facebook, twitter, linkedin, my space, etc. for that very reason.

Keep in mind those social services do GIVE you a FREE membership to their services in return for the right to collect your data/info. If you don't want your data mined them DON'T join their service.

However, the fact that the NSA is collecting EVERYTHING WITHOUT ASKING me, you, or anyone else is a totally different situation and it's unconstituional.

The NSA is not doing anything other than snooping on everyone without authorization other than the power they have bestowed upon themselves to do it.
