8. Scared little rabbit snowden thought he would get a sweet gig in Iceland..

snowden has no respect for anything.

..but no worries.. he's Putin's stooge now..

"These nations, including Russia, Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Ecuador have my gratitude and respect for being the first to stand against human rights violations."

http://wikileaks.org/Statement-by-Edward-Snowden-to.html

Venerable John Lewis made it clear the next day after the guardian edited his words.. that

"Rep. John Lewis: I Was Not Praising Edward Snowden"

“ I never praised Mr. Snowden or said his actions rise to those of Mohandas Gandhi or other civil rights leaders. In fact, The Guardian itself agreed to retract the word “praise” from its headline."

"... I said he has a right as an individual to act according to the dictates of his conscience, but he must be prepared to pay the price for taking that action. In the movement, we were arrested, we went to jail, we were prepared to pay the price, even lose our lives if necessary."

It's sure as shit.. snowden isn't willing to lose his life or pay any price.. he was freaking out because Pres Obama took away his damn passport. whine whine. that stay in the Russian airport must have been tremendously hard on him.

the shilling for snowden newspaper, the guardian, went too far when when they edited/twisted Red John Lewis' words.

thanks arely..
