What is this? Seems like a hand off of power from US to Russia.
Russia protects Snowden (likely an operative of Russia), hence the protection and snub.
Russia stands opposed to US aggression on Syria. Now they stand up to nations against human rights. The nation who criminalizes being gay.
They are just setting up the downfall of US to jump start the One World Order. If not then I'm just in the twilight zone. Do do, do do. Do do, do do.

I doubt he is a Russian operative. If he was the information would have never seen the light of day. It would have been used by the Russians for their own advantage.
I can’t believe all the garbage I’ve been reading lately. I swear, America has become so dumbed down and psychotic that it’s just not the same country I grew up in. It’s been in steady decline since at least the 70’s and has become a society of severely bipolar, paranoid/schizophrenic morons. No wonder the rest of the world has come to have such a dim view of this country. We’re idiots!
It seems that facts no longer have a place in this culture. People will believe ANYTHING, regardless of how nonsensical and outrageous it might be. If some Bozo on TV tells us that night is now day, black is now white and Hitler was actually a righteous dude, 80% of America would praise him for his nonconventional, forward thinking and idolize him as a great American hero.
Anymore we loyal Americans will go to any extent to publicly slander, disrespect and defy the President of our country. I may not agree with every idea he has or solution he proposes, but as an American I think the Office of the President does demand a certain amount of respect. These days we enthusiastically embrace the old school KGB mentality, and not so hidden agenda, of Putin, praising him for the superficial, politically motivated performance he put on, while damning our own president and refusing to ever support him for anything at all. I think it’s scandalous and reveals how shallow we’ve become. If we end up taking this country into the sewer, then I guess we deserve whatever we’ve brought upon ourselves.
As far as Snowden is concerned, I hope he’s enjoying his new digs in the wonderous land of Russia. I’m sure no one is invading his precious privacy there. Certainly not like those evil Americans. What a fool he is. A naive, misguided, traitorous fool. Sorry, but he gets no sympathy from me, and no gold star for being a hero for human rights. I think he committed treason knowingly, and has caused a lot of damage simply to satisfy his own selfish aspirations. He hasn’t really divulged anything that most of us didn’t already know. He simply incited a lot of uninformed people to rebel against something they don’t understand. Well, that was his choice, and he will have to live with it and all it’s consequences.
OK, I’m ready to accept your scorn and absorb the spears and arrows launched in my direction.
Snowden unveils that governments have been, with corporations as well, spying on domestic and foreign citizens, and people are STILL blabbering on about political-penis-games between Russia and the US.
It's hilarious, because these same people are the ones who bicker on with their superior intellect of, "I witnessed the Cold War son, I'm not letting that happen again."
THEN QUIT FEEDING IT!
Good lord. That's fantastic though, good on Smowden. He informed the American public that their rights have been and still are being infringed upon.
But what's important here is the fact that he released information to 'the bad guys.'
