Snowden rips Obama administration

The anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks says it has submitted asylum requests to 19 more countries for Edward Snowden, the ex-National Security Agency computer contractor who has admitted leaking details of U.S. surveillance programs to reporters.

The countries include Russia, where Snowden has been holed up at Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport since June 23. The rest are scattered from South America to several European Union countries, India and China.

"The documents outline the risks of persecution Mr. Snowden faces in the United States and have started to be delivered by the Russian consulate to the relevant embassies in Moscow," WikiLeaks, which has been assisting Snowden's effort to find a haven from U.S. espionage charges, said in a statement issued early Tuesday.

      After being repeatedly blocked, I, like you, stopped trying. It is nice to see most of the gang here, though.

    The Black Panthers, IRS, EPA, DHS, TSA and NSA are all groups that Obama uses to silence his opposition and force you to vote for him, but just like the Black Panthers nothing will come of it as long as the victims are white, Christian, conservative Americans. Maybe just maybe that's why Snowden did what he did because it's only racism if white people do those kind of things.

    I love it when liberals talk about Romney and outsourcing as if liberalism hasn't chased Hollywood out of California and the auto industry out of Detroit into conservative states such as Louisiana. California, Detroit, Chicago, etc.... every liberal city or state is a delapidated, wartorn, 3rd world failure and they want to do the same to the rest of the united states. Thank you liberal parasites for chasing business and the jobs that come with them out of your city or state into mine but leave liberalism (communism) where it belongs, in the Soviet Union.

      I love it when people use words they don't know the meaning of. Hey, did you see the study that concluded people who get their news from Fox are less knowledgeable about world events than those who watch no news at all?

    Chris Rock got rich telling jokes about CRACKERS and Paula Deen gets fired for saying the N-word, I guess it's only racism if a white person does it. Another fine example of liberal double standards.

      Sometimes the white guy doesn't even have to say it, and he's accused and vilified.

      To be honest, Chris Rock doesn't do that bit anymore since so many white people agreed with him...and yes, reverse racism is deplorable. But what does this have to do with Snowden?

    Hey banasy, is that a typo or do you really think we are going to put more liberal democrat trash in the white house?

      I think both sides need to be fired. Until the politicians chose to help the majority of americans not illigals and the 1%, then I say ignore all american laws, this nation us a joke.

    Snowden rips Obama administration, and unlike Paula Deen, he didn't even use the "N-word". NSA admits to taking 50 terrorists since 9/11, and now Snowden has to be handled for exposing governmental "peeping toms"? Outrageous!!!
