The Obama administration and its ward, the State Department, have screwed the pooch yet again. This time it involves "wanker leaks" Edward Snowden and his overwhelming desire to travel to any country that is hostile to our interests.
Of course the uber brilliant Sec State, John Kerry, said he would be deeply troubled if China and Russia had had prior notice of Snowden's travel plans. (Insert guffaw here).
Americans can track Snowden's geographic progress using a handy dandy chart of the globe, following his coordinates and even wagering on which hostile country in which he will score the final prize: political asylum. So far North Korea is odds on worst 125 to 1 while Ecuador looks like the top pick.
From The NY Times (last week) :
Legal experts said the administration appeared to have flubbed Mr. Snowden’s case. “What mystifies me is that the State Department didn’t revoke his passport after the charges were filed” on June 14, said David H. Laufman, a former federal prosecutor. “They missed an opportunity to freeze him in place.” He said he was also puzzled by the decision to unseal the charges on Friday rather than waiting until the defendant was in custody.
Luckily they finally got around to revoking Snowden's passport on Saturday 6/22. Of course, he was already gone. Maybe they can revoke the ballerina girlfriend's passport?
