Greenwald: Edward Snowden Likely to Go to Venezuela

Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald says he has spoken to leaker Edward Snowden from Russia and he will likely take Venezuela’s offer of asylum, according to a report on Wednesday.

Greenwald told Reuters after speaking with Snowden on Tuesday that of the three countries that have offered Snowden asylum, Venezuela is better positioned “to get him safely from Moscow to Latin America and to protect him once he’s there,” Greenwald said. “They’re a bigger country, a stronger country and a richer country with more leverage in international affairs.”

  1. I don't see how he gets from Moscow to Caracas without the empire getting their grubby claws into him. There is no trick too dirty for these sociopaths to thwart Snowden's flight to safety.

    It's a pretty sad commentary on the state of American affairs when people need to seek refuge in a Communist country to avoid indefinite detention, torture, and kangaroo courts disguised as "justice."

    1. I wonder how many ocean going vessels travel from the ports of the Soviet Union to Central/South America.
