Edward Snowden leaves Hong Kong

The global cat-and-mouse hunt for Edward Snowden took a drastic turn Sunday when the man wanted on U.S. espionage charges left Hong Kong and was flying over Russian airspace.
And he left with the help of WikiLeaks, who assisted with Snowden's "political asylum in a democratic country, travel papers (and) safe exit from Hong Kong." the group said on Twitter.

    It's better that Snowden be in a country other than China, which has power_that the USA must respect. There is no way that Snowden's betrayed country's government does not know where he is and where he is going.

    Benedict Arnold got away completely and died in England; Julius & Ethel Rosenberg got the chair. If Snowden gets any punishment at all, it'll be a little prison time. Maybe a posh rehab or anger-management_classes would suit him as a plea deal.

    And not only to add insult to injury these same elected officials that have mismanaged tax dollars so bad, theyve had to borrow from China. And to show their appreciation and respect, they SPY on them? Sheesh! No wonder the rest of the world has no respect or trust in the US!

    Thank you @ Mary. Maybe we need to take some lessons from Brazil huh? Sure is a helluva lot better than the DISRESPECT we've seen in the US lately.
