Snowden Gets Temporary Asylum in Russia

From Fox News.

NSA leaker Edward Snowden left the Moscow airport on Thursday and entered Russian territory after receiving temporary refugee status in the country, his representatives said.

His lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, said Snowden was issued papers that allowed him to leave Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, where he was stuck since his arrival from Hong Kong on June 23. He apparently has been given a one-year temporary asylum.

I would have had more respect for him if he stood his ground instead of running.

There’s a difference between being a whistleblower and a traitor; the distinction is motive. If your purpose is to expose unlawful, unconstitutional abuse of powers, then by all means, raise hell. If you’re a disgruntled, whiny little crapweasel who wants to damage national security to massage your ego, then you deserve the death penalty for the lives you endangered.

Snowden’s credibility erodes every time he rears his head for more publicity.
