Opening Arguments

Guess he showed us

Fark headlined this story, "Edward Snowden just went full Soviet," which has the virtue of being both funny and sad:

Fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden has applied for temporary asylum in Russia, officials say.

The Federal Migration Service confirmed he had completed the relevant paperwork at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, where he has been for the past three weeks.

Mr Snowden is wanted by the US for leaking details of government surveillance programmes.

He has no travel documents, so has been unable to take up asylum offers from a number of Latin American states.

Someone blowing the whistle on a surveillance state finds comfort in a police state? Guess the U.S. can stop pursuing a case against him since he has self-punished quite nicely.
