Is there no limit to the incompetence and stupidity of the Obama administration?
If they had wanted to control the movements of Edward Snowden, they should have revoked his passport immediately, rather than waiting–inexplicably– until he had arrived in Russia. You don’t think Putin would “hand-write” him one on demand? And if not a Russian passport, I’m sure he could have one of his choice from many embassies in Russia.
More than that, John Kerry and others have openly mocked China and Russia as states that repress free speech and transparency and therefore are hardly apt refuges for someone fighting government secrecy in the United States. Quoting Kerry:
“I wonder if Mr. Snowden chose China and Russia as assistants in his flight from justice because they’re such powerful bastions of Internet freedom.”
Well, let’s see Johnnie….
If there really were press freedom in the US, why did Snowden have to have his story published in the UK Guardian? And, how much Internet freedom do we have, if PRISM is reading all of our e-mails?
You truly can’t make this stuff up.
