Response to Ken Burch (Reply #38)

43. For all you know, Putin organized that little playlet with Evo to create buzz.

They play a lot of chess in Russia, too.

In fact, if I were betting, that's where my money would go.

I'll bet the Russian "source" that passed the word to NATO et. al. that Snowden was on that plane got a nice little bonus in his paycheck--and he's off the list of Trusted Blabbermouths, if he was ever on it in the first place.

Evo was not at all pissed, he recited his little whine as if by rote, and had a nice visit with diplomats while the plane was refueled. And plenty of reporters were miraculously on hand to cover the event and take plenty of pictures, at a place where Evo was not even supposed to land. Surprise, surprise, as Gomer sez.

In fact, the whole bullshit about the pilot filing to fuel here, then there, asking for the landing permissions, not getting them, and then turning round and landing in such a way to be able to play the "forced down" card (well, if "forced down" is translation for "The pilot didn't make the proper arrangements for fuel on the Iberian peninsula, and wanted to land at an airport where there was no fueling after hours, but hey, let's blame "AMRIKA" for that, too!" ) strains credulity.

Again, it's more theatre for the Adoration of Eddie Society. Eat it up with a spoon!

And why would you think that USA shouldn't try to intercept someone who is wanted for a stack of crimes? We have agreements with INTERPOL for this very purpose. By your justifications, murderers and child molesters on US passports, revoked or not, should be able to fly out of Moscow to South America "just because." Your logic is sorely wanting.
