Edward Snowden while in Hong Cong

 

 

 

In the continuing real life saga of Edward Snowden, all surrounding his whistleblowing of the NSA's secret surveillance programs and the fallout that has resulted from his revelations, in a bit of old news, the Obama administration on Saturday finally got around to issuing an extradition request for the Hong Cong government to send Snowden back to the U.S. "to face espionage and theft charges". The U.S. move was not unexpected.

In a seemingly direct result of this extradition request, Snowden, most likely on the advice of Wikileaks, left Hong Cong the next day on an Aeroflot flight to Moscow, (again a bit of old news).

From there the intrigue surrounding Snowden grows even greater.

As this is being written, Snowden's exact whereabouts can not be confirmed though Julian Assange has said he knows where Snowden is and what his plans are but for obvious reasons is not revealing them.

What is known Snowden has requested asylum in Ecuador which has been confirmed by Ecuador's foreign minister Ricardo Patino.
