Edward Snowden expects asylum status to be renewed in Russia

Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who fled to Moscow last year after revealing details of massive US intelligence-gathering programmes, expects his asylum status in Russia to be renewed before it expires this summer, his lawyer said on Wednesday.

Snowden and documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras, who worked with Snowden to reveal NSA documents he took from his job, were given the Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling, an award to promote transparency and whistle-blowing, at a ceremony in Washington on Wednesday. Snowden appeared on a video link-up from Russia and Poitras appeared from Berlin.

Jesselyn Radack, an attorney for Snowden, said his temporary asylum in Russia will expire at the end of June but that “prospects are good” for it to be renewed.

“Obviously, he misses America and would like to be able to come home,” she said. “We just don’t see that happening in the near future.”

Snowden was believed to have taken 1.7 million computerised documents. The leaked documents revealed massive programmes run by the NSA that gathered information on e-mails, phone calls and internet use by hundreds of millions of Americans. The US surveillance programmes also had international reach, including monitoring German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s mobile phone.

He was charged last year in the United States with theft of government property, unauthorised communication of national defence information and wilful communication of classified intelligence to an unauthorised person. Radack said the Justice Department has not wavered on the charges.

“If the Justice Department would like to talk, we’d be glad to,” she said. “He’s not going to come here to be prosecuted for espionage.”

Snowden, who has appeared around the world in similar video link-ups this year, told a crowd at the National Press Club that more laws are needed to protect potential whistle-blowers in the United States.

Asked what advice he had for them, he said, “Ideally, work with Congress in advance to try to make sure that we have reformed laws, better protection (for whistle-blowers) ... so next time we have an American whistle-blower who has something the public needs to know, they can go to their lawyer’s office instead of the airport.

“Right now I’m not sure that they have a real alternative. But if they’re going to do something, they better use encryption and they better do it from an IP address that’s not at their home.”

In May last year Snowden fled Hawaii, where he had worked as a contractor for the NSA, for Hong Kong, where he gave details of US surveillance programmes to Poitras and reporter Glenn Greenwald of the Guardian, who shared in a Pulitzer Prize for his Snowden stories.

Snowden then flew to Russia and spent more than a month living in a neutral transit zone in a Moscow airport before being granted asylum over the protests of the Obama administration.

Interesting that some people suggest that Snowden be given the Nobel price which really can't be taken seriously. The fact is that if he had done this same thing in Russia, in China or in any number of countries, he would have been treated as a traitor and would have faced the consequences, if not shot, certainly locked up for many years. These same countries would also have included Greenwald and Poitras in the same category, and hunted them down.
What an unfortunate situation for these three since they may be walking on egg shells for the rest of their lives, having to look over their shoulder in case some crazy tries to knock them off. Would not want to be in their shoes.

Milijarder kriv za nestanak zrakoplova?
Misterij oko nestalog malezijskog zrakoplova raste iz dana u dan. Najnovija nagađanja u središte pozornosti stavljaju milijardera Jacoba Rothschilda. Naime, nestankom 20 zaposlenih kompanije Freescale Semiconductor, Rothschild je postao jedini vlasnik patenta koji će služiti za elektronsko ratovanje. Jacob Rothschild (77) je britanski multimilijarder, navodni član masona i prikriveni vođa svijeta. Neki mediji pišu kako je upravo Rothschild iskoristio malezijsku aviokompaniju kako bi se riješio suvlasnika tog mikročipa te postao njegov jedini vlasnik.
Nakon ove konstatacije, odmah su se počela postavljati pitanja – zašto toliko mnogo Freescaleovih inženjera putuje zajedno… gdje su krenuli… jesu li oni razlog nestanka zrakoplova… jesu li imali vrijedne informacije zbog kojih je zrakoplov otet… jesu li znali neke tehnološke tajne… je li u pitanju teorija zavjere ili samo nezaobilazna realnost, no još uvijek se ništa ne zna jer zrakoplov još nije pronađen.
Nastavljena potraga
Operacija potrage za olupinom Boeinga 777 Malaysia Airlinesa nastavljena je jučer, a premještena je za približno 1100 kilometara sjeveroistočno od mjesta koje su dosad nadlijetali zrakoplovi, i to nakon novog traga. Naime, patrolni zrakoplov novozelandskog zrakoplovstva tipa P-3 uočio je nove objekte na području potrage za nestalim zrakoplovom, prenosi CNN.
