In his newest bizarre claim, Edward Snowden claims that he's only in Russia because that's where the US State Department wants him.

He claims he was never a Russian spy.

However, he fled to Russia from Hong Kong voluntarily, after fleeing to Hong Kong from the USA, again, voluntarily. I'm not sure how he thinks that we'll believe that he went there because the US State Department told him to. If he WAS a US double agent, he's certainly blown his cover.

Yes, the State Department suspended his passport while he was in Russia, but he went to Russia of his own accord after leaving Hong Kong.

I'm not sure how he expects anyone to accept his revision of very well documented events.

He was going to South America via the Russia - Cuba route when the State Department pinned him at the Russian airport. They chose the location of his final stopping place, Snowden didn't. So technically yes, the State Department chose his final location.

They stopped him there in an allied state. They want him close, they aren't done with him yet.

Maybe you are looking at this the wrong way....Being an enemy of the state, so the USA government claims....This way we have a reason to be pissed at Russia for offering him safety....Giving the US a reason to fight with Russia....This is all speculation of course, just trying to open you up to possibly the other side of what he means by where the state department WANTS him?

You're all naive. If another country wanted to give Snowden asylum, they would arrange travel documents for him or make arrangements so that documents weren't required.

Lack of passport doesn't mean Snowden can't travel.

He requested asylum in Russia, and got it, despite not having a passport and being unable to legally travel through Russian customs. Russia made it happen, so could other countries.

No, Snowden has decided to stay in Russia. The US State Department has nothing to do with it.

At least you keep an open mind about things.....Unless you are aware of information the rest of us aren't?

How can you be so sure of something? The only information we have to go off of is what you read from sources in the news.....Does that make it true all of a sudden?

ha.

Are you serious? Yes, all this stuff is well documented.


(CNN) -- Rumors that U.S. intelligence leaker Edward Snowden hitched a ride on Bolivia's presidential jet have sparked a global diplomatic feud that's roiled leaders throughout South America.
The drama started Tuesday after Portuguese authorities wouldn't let Bolivian President Evo Morales' plane land in Lisbon for refueling while on his way back from a conference in Russia, Bolivian Defense Minister Ruben Saavedra told CNN en Español.


www.cnn.com...

They grounded the Bolivian leaders jet because of rumours of Snowden on it….


And why, then, was he “stuck in the airport forever” when he reached Moscow? (He spent forty days in the transit zone of Sheremetyevo International Airport.) “Spies get treated better than that.”

Makes sense. Otherwise it'll be too obvious that he's acting under soviet orders to attack US National Security. So he rejects the blame back to US.

We must remember that it was the KGB who created Operation Infektion. Operation Infektion was the broadcasting, in US media, of conspiracy theories targeting the US Intelligence agencies. Notice how no "leaks" are leaked about Russia's own corruption. China could be very well doing the same thing. All "leaks" are directed at the US, and the question is, Why do they want us to focus on only the US? What is it they want us to ignore?

I think there is more going on here, than what everyone thinks.

It is obvious that the USA had revoked Snowden's passport en route to Russia, thereby leaving him in limbo. When looking at it in this manner, purely, than Snowden is correct in that the USA had stranded him in Russia.

Snowden had allegedly visited the Russian consulate in Hong Kong before he began his travels to Russia. That should be an important note, but i do not think it is indicative of Snowden being a Russian spy. During that time, he was being looked after by WikiLeaks, which has a history of ties to the Russian government. So it would make sense for WikiLeaks to take him to the Russian consulate at least for temporary protection. Add to this that Snowden was planning to claim asylum in South America, and was using Russia and Cuba as intermediary travel points, which actually makes sense when one is running from a world power...

No, i do not think Snowden is a Russian spy. I think there is more evidence to suggest that he was actually a spy for WikiLeaks...
