American outlaw and fugitive Edward Snowden is on the move…
A former National Security Agency contractor wanted by the United States for revealing highly classified surveillance programs was allowed to leave for a “third country” because a U.S. extradition request did not fully comply with Hong Kong law, the territory’s government said Sunday. CBS News confirmed Snowden was supposed to land in Moscow early Sunday morning, although whether or not that is his final destination is unclear. WikiLeaks, which claims to have aided Snowden’s flight, said on Twitter he had landed at around 9:15 a.m. ET.
Hong Kong’s government did not identify his destination. A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was unaware of Snowden’s whereabouts or travel plans.
Snowden, who has been in hiding in Hong Kong for several weeks since he revealed information on the highly classified spy programs, has talked of seeking asylum in Iceland.
However, both Russia’s ITAR-Tass news agency and Reuters cited an unidentified Aeroflot official as saying Snowden would fly from Moscow to Cuba on Monday and then on to Caracas, Venezuela. Others have mentioned Ecuador as a possible final destination.
So much for his manly claims of having done nothing wrong and his willingness to take responsibility for his actions.
Edward Snowden is nothing more than a narcissistic coward and traitor to his country. I wish those of you who are trying to make him out to be some kind of hero would get over it.
Update: Word is now that the traitor may be enroute to Ecuador.
