Whistleblower Edward Snowden Asks Ecuador For Asylum
The American administration is embarrassed, frustrated and very angry in the wake of the revelations by Edward Snowden, regarding two highly classified NSA surveillance programs, and his subsequent avoidance of extradition from Hong Kong.
The reaction to these events over the past few days, has been verging on the hysterical, with Senator Dianne Feinstein, Secretary of State John KerryWhite House spokesman Jay Carney and others appearing on our television screens and being quoted in the media, threatening all sorts of dire consequences for any country through which Snowden may have travelled on his way to political asylum.
The Americans seem to have no idea where he is, where he was or even where he is going. Consequently, they behave like spoilt brats in the school playground, threatening everyone and stamping their feet because they are unable to get their own way.
It never ceases to amaze me that the Americans have this rather naive view that they are somehow the centre of the universe and are entitled to instruct the rest of the world on how to behave and what to do. Events over recent days may have dented their over inflated ego.
Incidentally, if this post has upset the readers at GCHQ or NSA or any other “security” organisations, I do not really give a toss.
