Run, Eddie, Run!
Ed Snowden has reportedly left Hong Kong, or has he? Some say that might be a ruse. Hong Kong officials refused to give him up, supposedly not satisfied the U.S. request met guidelines of Hong Kong law:
"Since the documents provided by the U.S. government did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law, the HKSAR government has requested the U.S. government to provide additional information ... As the HKSAR government has yet to have sufficient information to process the request for provisional warrant of arrest, there is no legal basis to restrict Mr Snowden from leaving Hong Kong."
Hmmm...that almost sounds familiar. Well, not exactly, but that was kind of the runaround that the Afghan Taliban gave us when we asked them for Osama Bin Laden. When they balked at turning him over, we attacked. Shouldn't we attack Hong Kong then?
Last word I have is that he arrived in Russia and might be departing for another country. Here's your chance to show your stuff by correctly guessing where Snowden might finally end up:
