Snowden´s ultimate
destination Venezuela where
he will fly to from Moscow
with stopover in Havana

Voice of Russia Radio [Russia]*, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 6/23/2013 6:23:37 AM

A source with the Aeroflot airlines confirmed that the a man named Snowden was listed among passengers of Flight Su213 bound for Moscow. According to the source, the same passenger is to leave for Cuba on June 24 aboard Aeroflot Flight SU150. Edward Snowden, a former CIA employee charged with espionage in the United States, is flying to Cuba via Moscow, a source close to Snowden said. "He has departed on a direct flight for Moscow and will be there in the evening. But he will not stay in Moscow long. He discussed an option of further transit to Cuba,"

Hope he likes living without toilet paper. But I´m sure life among the Chavista elite and their Cuban masters is comfortable.

More seriously, the maggot is now about to learn what being a Useful Idiot is. Eddie Howard and the Philby crew all died drunk and probably killed by their Soviet masters and Philip Agee died mysteriously young, too. The Communists get rid of maggots like Snowden, once they´ve squeezed them dry. What a fool he is.

My my they sure are letting us in on alot of information about Snowed ´em. Since when do airlines release passenger info?

Did the US purposely wait all this time to file inadequate extradition papers? Or: did Hong Kong purposely ignore US requests for extradition, claiming the papers didn´t meet their standards? Knowing the US wanted him (if it really did want him) why did Hong Kong not give the US another chance to file proper papers? Story continues to be fishy.

No amount of hyperbole from the government is going to turn me against Snowden. The man informed the citizens of this once great country that the government was and still is no obeying the Constitution. The only people whose lives are in danger are us.

Do drones fly over Venezuela? I´m not sure he´s safe no matter where he goes.
Regardless of how one characterizes him, he has shred light on things we didn´t know before. I personally am grateful for that.

Don´t hold me to this, but I heard he was going overland from Hong Kong to Istanbul where he will get on the Orient Express. Once in Zurich he will once again go overland dressed as an old woman and travel by bus to The Hague. From The Hague he is flying coach to Wasilla, AK to visit Sarah Palin and then it´s back to Hong Kong. This is only a rumor, however. Shhh...

Okay -- com´on folks.....

Putin -- a former KGB operative -- is gonna give the media exact instructions on how and when and where?

I think not!!

I´m sorry the kid felt he had to go to China to tell his story...

I´m starting to get bored with this story. He needs to get back to the U.S. and tell his story to Fox News. They will give him a chance...

I still am thankful he spilled the beans so that I might know just what obama is doing in DC...

I am glad that Hong Kong did not cave to the "demands" of the corrupt administration. If they erredin filing the complaint, then shame on them. Apparently, Holder is incompetent, and Barry is too busy jet setting while pretending to be pResident.

Had he been home, doing his JOB, perhaps the filing would have been done properly. He is an attorney, right?

The failures run rampant in the administration, and this is just one more example of the blatant incompetency in the Whitehouse.

On the other hand, don´t expect the hand to feed you while you have been secretly gnawing away at it, while being hypocritical. You claim China is hacking the US, but when proof is presented you are doing the same in return, you expect a favor? Really?

Don´t do a half arsed job while stabbing the other guyin the back. It just isn´t good politics.

Oh, and in case you hadn´t noticed, the world is watching, and noticing, you making an idiot of yourself.

Perhaps you should keep a low profile like you have been making Biden do. You are doing a lot of damage to yourself, and Democrats. And the world isn´t as stupid as you think they are.

Good thing they can´t be as easily controlled as some of the citizens of the US apparently can be. Or threatened, for that matter.

The claim that Snowden gave away secrets in exposing NSA surveillance is absurd.

The Russians and Chinese are well aware of what the NSA is doing. He didn´t tell them anything they didn´t already know. It is the slothful, apathetic American public that didn´t know. What he did reveal is that the Democrats were illicitly using the resources of the NSA to build the “largest voter database in history” that Nancy Pelosi bragged about recently.

And with that database information in hand, they set out, using the IRS and others, to suppress and essentially defund through fundraising suppression, the political opposition.

Snowden is perhaps a Kumbaya child, a utopian open border, open architecture, free spirit, but an espionage agent he is not.

What he has done is show America the dirty underbelly of the modern Democrat Party and its political machine.

All those Harvard and Yale educated lawyers had a week to put together a bulletproof extradition request, and they blew it. The Hong Kong (Chinese) government says "Stick your extradition request up your nose. What are you going to do about it?"

Aeroflot (Russian Government Airline) releases flight plans, says "We´ll be flying him to Moscow, give him some caviar and vodka, what are you going to do about it?"

The Cubans say "Come on down! We´ll give him some cigars. What are the running dogs going to do about it?"

The Venezuelans say "We´ve got great a place where the Gringos can´t touch you, what are they going to do about it?"

Such is the state of American prestige and power in today´s world.

So now our battle cry is "Give me toilet paper or give me death"?

I guess "freedom" isn´t worth risking your life any more for those who are still lounging comfortably, blissfully content that their government is browsing their every single email, phone call, credit card transaction, and forum posting without having yet singled them out for prosecution.

Sorry, I don´t care any more if Snowden runs to Satan himself to escape the grinding of our criminal government´s machinery. His action IS heroic.

Everyone needs to re-read Animal Farm.

from Animal Farm, Chapter 7 - all the animals confess to their "sins...":

"Presently the tumult died down. The four pigs waited, trembling, with guilt written on every line of their countenances. Napoleon now called upon them to confess their crimes. They were the same four pigs as had protested when Napoleon abolished the Sunday Meetings. Without any further prompting they confessed that they had been secretly in touch with Snowball ever since his expulsion, that they had collaborated with him in destroying the windmill, and that they had entered into an agreement with him to hand over Animal Farm to Mr. Frederick. They added that Snowball had privately admitted to them that he had been Jones´s secret agent for years past. When they had finished their confession, the dogs promptly tore their throats out, and in a terrible voice Napoleon demanded whether any other animal had anything to confess."

It bears repeating: were George W. Bush or any other Republican in office, Edward Snowden would get so much glowing press that Superman couldn´t get a look-in.

The sealed complaint demonstrates that the NSA and government spooks in general think they are above the law. Snowden´s only protection is massive media coverage. What chance does John Q. Public, who lacks friends in high places, have?

From what I´ve read, the government is running two parallel operations, one where it purportedly goes after terrorists and the other where it accumulates information on ordinary law-abiding citizens. The second is completely unnecessary. Snowden has let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.

So, #20, exactly what "NSA secrets" did Snowden reveal? Blueprints to our most advanced strategic weapons systems? Names of our secret agents in their countries? Our battle plans against them? No...he revealed that our own government was spying on EVERY CITIZEN of the United States.

Yes, he indeed is heroic for revealing that.

The list of known deaths relative to Corrupt Power Washington Insider secrets is far and away too long for here.

If they kill, or, abduct Snowdon he´ll be in good company.

I love the irony of all of this. Barky and his crooked government complain about Snowden releasing secret information when his administration is stealing and using private information about it´s own citizens. The same administration wanted China to return Snowden for telling the world that the US is hacking China´s computers. I´m sure they loved that.

This supposedly poorly educated former NSA employee seems to be outsmarting the System that thinks it knows everything. Note to the MSM... Now is the time to cut those chains that bind you to a crooked administration. They can´t blackmail you anymore with information everyone knows is stolen by listening to your phone conversations and reading everything you write before it is even sent.

Who knows where Snowden is going. Since he has all of those computers in his possession he is probably reading their stuff before they send it.

I´m very suspicious of the delay in filing for extradition. According to a timeline found at Yahoo, Snowden´s location in Hong Kong was publicly known on June 9. It´s likely US officials privately knew his location before the article was published. But even if they didn´t know before June 9, that still leaves around two weeks before an extradition request was made to the Chinese.

Some Ldotters will recall the October 1985 incident where a young Ukrainian seaman, Miroslav Medved, jumped ship in the Missisippi River at New Orleans and was taken to the nearby Navy single officers´ quarters for safety while his plea for asylum went through channels.

Unfortunately, for Medved, Salt II talks were at a critical stage and the Secretary of Defense at the time (Caspar Weinberger, DoD, Reagan administration), not wanting to jeopardize the talks, ordered Medved returned to the Soviet ship within a few days. The US withdrew from Salt II some time during the following year.

Although at the time there was a huge outcry about the return of Medved, I doubt that Snowden is aware that Russia owes us one.

Moscow has undergone a building boom
with high rises and very , very expensive real estate .
It´s actually become a haven for the super rich and a vibrant and modern city.
Too bad Obama and Company didn´t work with Snowden
to get the laptops back before they fell into the wrong hands.
It was more important for Barry and Holder
to pound their chests like faux manly men and tell Snowden they were going to hang him.
I bet they could have worked out a legal deal with Snowden , in exchange for returning all the info he had .
Although, you can´t trust Obama to keep his word.
We may all be moving to Moscow.
Obama has ordered that all federal employees from the USDA to the Peace Corps to the Deptof Education and NOAA
must spy on their co workers and report anyone undergoing a divorce or experiencing stress, because they might become traitors.
Anyone who expresses unhappiness with co workers or the direction of the federal agency or department..must .. be ..reported.
Failure to spy on your co workers and report them could result in criminal charges.
And if anyone at any level in any federal agency reveals anything to the media-even the names of hurricanes -they will be charged with espionage.
McClatchy exposed this atrocity last week
in the Kansas City Star " Obama Targets Insider Threats " by Marisa Taylor and Jonathan S Landay.
Google it-you will be absolutely stunned at Obama´s decree .

All signs point to Snowden being alreayd compromisd - and caught - before his famous flight to Hong Kong. Why did he abandon his pole-dancing girlfriend and leave his unpacked boxes full of stolen documents in such a hurry. Why did the feds file ESPIONAGE rather than leak charges against him? He was the ChiComs´ spy and tried to cover it up by making it a leak case. It´s also why he tried to pull a Chris Boyce when he was in HK, loudly yelling about US spying in Hong Kong to win local sympathy. He´s a toady and a manipulator, and like most traitors has an oversize ego. He´s trying to paint himself a hero, same as the odious Wikileaker Bradley Manning. No wonder Assange is jealous of him.

It´s driven him straight into the arms of the world´s worst totalitarians whom he is now succoring to sing for his supper. Lucky us - they have our secrets now and we don´t have theirs. Is that in the American interest? Who do you think Castro´s best ally is? It´s Iran. Lucky us.

You´d have to be insane to think that you´re protected as a whistle blower in this country. He´d be roadkill if he had protested to his government or aired his grievances to "Fox News".

Hero or traitor, Snowden is not getting a very cushy ride, you know. As far as I can see, he has sacrificed his citizenship, comfort and safety for what may be the rest of his life.

I´m glad he flipped on this obama government. It´s one more blow to cripple the obama regime that is lawless and disdainful of our constitutional rights. As far as I´m concerned, anything that goes right for obama is bad for this country.

I heard on the radio driving home - on Friday, I think - that Obama and Putin had a fracas about who was going to get to use the gymnasium - Obama got to use it because he "put in" for it first, so he had first dibs . . . there´s another name for him, "First Dibs" . . .
more worried about whether he gets to have his workout - and what kind of workout does he do, anyway - he doesn´t look like a weightlifter - maybe he climbs the ropes, I always thought that looked rather difficult
Anyway, perhaps, hopefully, "First Dibs" and the Democratic leadership are getting nervolated about what Snowden can divulge to Putin - more worried really about what would be embarrassing to them than the well-being of our nation.

Blah blah blah. I am not jumping to conclusions. Moscow is no longer in the Soviet Union. Anyone can go there. Also Snowden is not an uncommon name. I knew a Snowden before. No confirmation it was Edward. I still believe he did the right thing from what information I know. I do NOT trust the government.

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who was praised as the most popular Spanish writer since Cervantes, died today in Mexico City at the age of 87. Garcia Marquez, a former journalist who was born in Colombia but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years, is best known for his 1967 masterpiece, the epic, hallucinatory novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, about the trials and tribulations of one family over several generations. Widely taught in college, it has sold about 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. His other novels include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), about a pathological fascist

A rapper who cut off his own penis before attempting suicide will not have the organ reattached, it was revealed today. Andre Johnson, who has performed with the Wu-Tang Clan, was rushed to hospital on Wednesday after he attempted suicide by jumping from a second-floor balcony at an apartment building in North Hollywood. Mr Johnson was found on the sidewalk critically injured and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center along with his severed penis. Although Mr Johnson is in a stable condition, his penis was unable to be saved, TMZ reported today. Rapper friends who live in the building told

"The economy and the social aspects are indivisible to us," commented on Tuesday the Minister of Petroleum and Mining Rafael Ramírez. "We are moving towards the creation of a different system," he added. Regarding the government´s so-called economic offensive, Ramírez stressed their new approach will focus on "production sectors so as to produce our own supplies and food." "Our economy has been under attack, and we will not wait until next year to take action; on the contrary, we have created a new exchange system, we have opened up new ways to allow the inflow of dollars," he stressed. Ramírez underlined that Venezuela´s

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition.

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit. She adds: "This is a city built on

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

KANO, Nigeria – A child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria killed a groom and three of his friends with a poisoned meal, police said Thursday. Fourteen-year-old Wasila Umaru was married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani, according to assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia. Over the weekend, the groom invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his Ungwar Yansoro village, about 60 miles from the northern city of Kano. The teenager told police she bought rat poison at a village market and used it to prepare a dish of rice. "The suspect confessed to committing the crime and said she did it because she

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Last week, the online dating site OkCupid switched up its homepage for Mozilla Firefox users. Upon opening the site, a message appeared encouraging members to curb their use of Firefox because the company´s new CEO, Brendan Eich, allegedly opposes equality for gay couples—specifically, he donated $1000 to the campaign for the anti-gay Proposition 8 in 2008. "We´ve devoted the last ten years to bringing people—all people—together," the message read. "If individuals like Mr. Eich had their way, then roughly 8% of the relationships we´ve worked so hard to bring about would be illegal." The company´s action went viral, and within

The former secretary of state posted the photo Friday after meeting with band members while the annual Women in the World Summit in New York.

Intolerance: The left hounded a CEO from his job over a 2008 donation in favor of a California measure opposing gay marriage. So much for free speech and job performance. This is a descent into mob tyranny and mediocrity. The dirty work of the left was achieved after Brendan Eich, recently appointed CEO of Mozilla, a software company based in Silicon Valley, was forced out of the company he helped found, all to feed the maw of political correctness. Eich´s "crime" had nothing to do with his job performance, let alone the inclusive work atmosphere he fostered at Mozilla.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
