Thread: What's going to happen to Snowden on the NSA leaks?

  1. #1

    Default What's going to happen to Snowden on the NSA leaks?

    With the left and the right all up in arms over this debacle what will happen?
    Will the Justice Dept be able to bring him back to the US and prosicute him.
    Also now what will happen to our security in all means whether it be online or
    telephone communcations.

    If he has committed a crime then the US can put in a claim to the government of wherever he is now (or caught later depending on whether he leaves Hong Kong) and request extradition back to the US. I don't know if they have to obey that request because I don't believe that was done in the case of Julian Assange so it could be a bit moot. Also he could Snowden could claim asylum to avoid being deported back to the US so while something can be done to get him back he can also circumvent those measures.

    There has to be an extradition agreement between that country and the US otherwise the other country won't care too much.

    If he's got any sense he'll head across the water to Vietnam and live quietly there: there's no extradition treaty with the US and what money he has will go further for longer than in Hong Kong...

    Hopefully he gets to somewhere the U.S. Government won't be able to get him. In the meantime they'll probably try to paint him as some anti-American who wants to see everyone in the U.S die and loves al-qaeda

    Apparently Russia are willing to grant him asylum if he goes there so he has that as an option I guess.

    Agreed. Unlike the case of the politicians in Washington, the actions of Snowden can only help the cause of democracy and accountability.

    There is an extradition treaty between the US and Hong Kong, although there are exemptions for crimes considered political. Whether this case meets that definition would, of course, be up to the courts in Hong Kong to decide. Could be interesting if the US decides to seek extradition.

    The Obama Administration didn't like being called out for their trampling of the Constitution. They have a history of retaliating against whistle blowers. Who wants to take bets that a drone is on its way to take care of Snowden. It's time to look into impeaching Obama. The overreach of taken Snowden out with a drone would be enough for impeachment, I believe.

    He is definitely in big trouble. Even though what the NSA has done is probably reprehensible, we don't vest the discretion in random people to decide when classified information needs to be disseminated. He knew the moment he gave a classified document to the press (let alone the FOREIGN press) that his goose was going to be cooked.
