NPR said:


Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor accused of leaking classified surveillance information, has left Hong Kong for a "third country," the government in the Asian hub says.

The Associated Press reports that an Aeroflot flight from Hong Kong believed to be carrying Snowden, has arrived in Moscow. Earlier, quoted an unidentified official from the airline as saying Snowden would fly to Moscow and from there to Cuba on Monday, with an ultimate destination of Caracas, Venezuela.

Its a way for them to slap the US in the face.  That's all they care about and of course any information he can give them.

Which "democratic" countries do we lack an extradition treaty with? Because it is that second qualifier that he most likely wants satisfied.

The government and media have categorized this person as a criminal and a spy. His "crime" is telling citizens what the government is doing in secret, spying on us. I hope he finds some country who will refuse to extradite him.

By the way, all of our comments on this subject have been duly logged by the NSA. We are not allowed to know what they are doing, but rest assured they know what we are doing.

He should stay in Moscow, if only so I can listen to more US senators issue threats against us. Go ahead, make my day :)

The Russian government refuses Snowden to allow to stay in Russia

Snowden certainly knows how to play the game, and he should, considering the work he's been in.

There are many countries who will offer assistance to him, which is no surprise at all considering the number of enemies we have made over the years.

I think it's funny the way it's all playing out.  Wouldn't it be funny if both Snowden and Assange ended up in Ecuador? :w00t:

The latest I heard was that a CNN crew in Moscow alledgely saw Snowden getting into an Ecuadorian diplomatic vehicle directly from the airplane, with his luggage in a second Ecuadorian diplomatic vehicle.
