RUN EDDY RUN! – ‘Edward Snowden asking 15 countries for asylum, Russian official says’ – ‘Hero’ Edward Snowden breaks silence to threaten new U.S. disclosures’ – Rafael Correa not considering Snowden asylum: helping him was a ‘mistake’ – ‘Putin Says Snowden Must Stop Hurting U.S. to Stay in Russia’
Ah. Our little Eddy is learning a hard lesson.
Nobody likes a coward that ‘demands’ justice for others but runs, hides and won’t answer questions.
‘In a letter to Ecuador seen by Reuters, Snowden said the United States was illegally persecuting him for revealing its electronic surveillance program, PRISM’.

Let’s see Eddy.
You illegally downloaded information you weren’t authorized to have and then broke your non disclosure contract, left your girl friend without saying a word to her and flew to Hong Kong and began revealing classified information……..but it’s the US Government that’s ‘illegally persecuting’ you’.
‘Ecuador is not considering Edward Snowden’s asylum request and never intended to facilitate his flight from Hong Kong, president Rafael Correa said as the whistleblower made a personal plea to Quito for his case to be heard’.
“Are we responsible for getting him to Ecuador? It’s not logical. The country that has to give him a safe conduct document is Russia.”
‘On whether Correa would like to meet him, the president said: “Not particularly. He’s a very complicated person. Strictly speaking, Mr Snowden spied for some time.”

‘Snowden Seeks Asylum in Russia, Putting Kremlin on the Spot’
MOSCOW — ‘The Kremlin on Monday found itself confronted with a dilemma it had hoped to avoid, after an official revealed that Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor wanted by the United States, had submitted a request to Russia for political asylum’.
“If he wants to go somewhere and they accept him, please, be my guest,” Mr. Putin said. “If he wants to stay here, there is one condition: He must cease his work aimed at inflicting damage to our American partners, as strange as it may sound from my lips.”
