I think your more lightly to encounter the alchie's/junkies given your choice of hunting ground, i'm afraid they just don't taste the same!

You are however correct in the assumption that you will most lightly need your gun as they can be rather aggressive this time of year!
LoL

A taste testing is called for.

Surely this can't happen. The UK has an extradition treaty with the US. We're closest allies for crying out loud.

The moment Snowden landed at Glasgow, he'd be arrested by Scottish Police and the process would begin. Mind you, doing that would guarantee he couldn't face the death penalty though - the UK won't extradite people facing that.

You may have hit on an important point with this. The whole thing could be a clever international law tactic.

CIA?
Did I miss something.... NSA you mean.


He worked for the NSA directly, then the CIA for a few years, then back as a contractor for NSA projects again. He spent a good number of years between the two Agencies. That was all in his own published interview when he first revealed who he was in relation to the leaks. Public record, one might say.


In 2003, he enlisted in the US army and began a training program to join the Special Forces.


He broke both his legs in a training accident, according to that, for why he was dropped from the military.


After that, he got his first job in an NSA facility, working as a security guard for one of the agency's covert facilities at the University of Maryland. From there, he went to the CIA, where he worked on IT security.



By 2007, the CIA stationed him with diplomatic cover in Geneva, Switzerland. His responsibility for maintaining computer network security meant he had clearance to access a wide array of classified documents.



He left the CIA in 2009 in order to take his first job working for a private contractor that assigned him to a functioning NSA facility, stationed on a military base in Japan.

......and the rest, as they say, is history. I wouldn't be half surprised at this point for him to get some public medal in the Russian Federation and just outright say he'd already been on payroll outside the U.S. well before he left. I don't know that...but it just would't surprise me. What he did used to be called defecting, and was more often seen going the other direction for most of the years I've been alive. He just literally reversed the normal process.......by coincidence or not.

A story without an end ..I suppose. At this stage, anyway.
