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.

    You would have to be on pcp to vote for Obama a second time unless you are just STUPID.

    @ hamsta, nice to see your people skills and vocabulary have improved. NOT! Now you know whats REALLY stupid? You thinking that this ONE man has so much power. And that he can control everything thats been going on. And you know whats even more stupid than that? That he couldve done all of that for decades BEFORE he became POTUS! And AGAIN, Congress MUST approve ALL taxes and expenditures! Go back to school or google it, one or the other Hamsta!

    That's funny chrissy, everything is Bush's fault and when it's Obama's turn everything is congress' fault. Which way do you want to point your argument. Another fine example of liberal double standards, hypocrisy.

    To answer your question chrissy, I don't typically vote on politicians but I voted against Obama in both elections. The fact tgat he wants to "fundamentally transform America" should have immediately made you suspiscous especially since he never told you what he wants to transform America into. America was the greatest nation on Earth, there is no need to transform it and only a socialist or communist piece of crap would want to "transform America."

    Ok and that also explains alot too! That you DONT typically vote. Tells me that you have no right to complain about anything that concerns government issues because you dont want to participate in making them right.

    And most definitely america does need to be transformed! What a stupid thing to say! You're saying we need to continue down this path of corruptness in our government?? And jobs need to continue being sent to other countries? Do you see anything wrong with that picture at all? Probably not because you really are anti american!
