Edward Snowden Pool

Post by John Q. Public » Sat Jul 06, 2013 7:40 am

* Rejected his request because it wasn't made on their territory
** Will look at his request if it's made on their territory
*** Snowden withdrew his request

I'm going with Nicaragua. Of the likely choices, his chances of staying there long-term seem more likely. Second choice - Venezuela, except the opposition made a good showing in the last election and Maduro doesn't have Hugo's charisma, so their chances look better next time and Snowden's look worse.

Wherever he ends up, I don't think it will take him long to realize it isn't Hawaii. And any way you look at it he's going to have to learn a new language.

Venezuela has offered asylum.

From there he will have numerous options on South America.

It will be beneficial to learn a new language, though in my South American travels I encountered numerous residents that spoke better English than many Americans.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Maybe that will be the next pool. I'll go with the early long shot and say he gets shot by the jealous ex-husband of some babe he's never met.

Secret locations known only to him, the former KGB, the former Stasi, and of course, 18e.

In other words, "Huh? I have no idea." Looks fine to me.

Aha! It looks like IE has its own idea about how to handle line heights. The superscripts are pushing the letters out of their "boxes". I'll remove them.

I'm going with Poland, but not asylum.
I'm thinking it will be a dank, drafty hangar at the end of a fenced in runway, leased by "Generic Charter Air Services".

Where ever Snowden ends up His status as "guest" will only last until his info dries up and the novelty of sticking it to the US wears off. :lol:

I bet all the information he stole is in his Amazon Cloud account, and his password is the name of his pet gerbil. --:--

He will take jay carney's or john kerry's spot. He may also end up a campaign manager for hillary.
Liberalism is like an out-of-control 5 year old at McDonalds. All the talking to and admonishment won't make a difference. They have no concept of right or wrong, they are nothing more than narcissists.
