Whistleblower’s whistle-stop global tour
– HE ASKS 21 COUNTRIES FOR ASYLUM
SECRETS whistleblower Edward Snowden’s has applied for asylum in 21 countries, according to secrets-spilling website Wikileaks.
But his best chance may hinge on Venezuela, whose president is in Moscow meeting Vladimir Putin.
Nicolas Maduro said his country has not received an application for asylum from Mr Snowden yet and dodged the question of whether he would take him back with him.
But he did defend the former National Security Agency contractor who released documents on U.S. intelligence-gathering operations, saying: “What he did was tell a great truth in an effort to prevent wars.”
Mr Snowden withdrew his bid for asylum in Russia when he learned the terms Moscow had set out included him not leaking more secrets.
Other countries Mr Snowden (right), 30, is looking at include Bolivia, China, Cuba and Ecuador.
The Yanks want to tear him a new a***hole.
