Response to Ken Burch (Original post)

Thu May 1, 2014, 10:01 PM

71. Snowden did NOT want to go to Russia. The US Govt forced him to remain there when they

revoked his passport.

His destination was Latin America where he had sought Political Asylum. He needed to be in Ecuador which was willing to grant him asylum once he was there and made a formal request, when the US Govt revoked his passport after he left Hong Kong, which refused to hand him over to the US, to continue his journey to Latin America. After Hong Kong refused the US request, they revoked his passport forcing him to remain in Russia.

Please correct the OP to include the fact that it was not Snowden who 'fled to Russie', it was the US Govt who forced him to remain on what was only a stopover on his way to where he wanted to be.
