March 4 2015:  Edward Snowden said prepared to return to America and face justice.

Snowden’s Russian lawyer revealed that the fugitive is working with American and German lawyers to get back home.  Washington officials welcomed the news and said Snowden would be informed of his criminal charges filed against him.  Will he make it back to the US?  Could it happen?  It would be interesting to see what happens should Snowden return.  Likely to be pounced on when he lands on American soil.  Can he face that?  Would it be a good thing?  Who knows the situation going on for some time. Not likely to return home because an arrest would happen.  Could Snowden accept an arrest?  Looks like life in Moscow for the time being.  He is safe and not in jail.

February 2015:

A documentary about Edward Snowden won an award at the Oscars 2015.  Called Citizenfour it got best documentary directed by Laura Poitras.  An excellent achievement.

It tells the story of Snowden’s 2013 National Security Agency leaks. Poitras traveled to Hong Kong to meet with Snowden. Citizenfour analyzed the impact of the surveillance documents he leaked, as well as his role as a public figure.  Good to watch and worth viewing

National Security Agency

The former CIA technical worker wanted by the US intelligence service fled to Hong Kong in May 2013.  This after leaking extensive internet and phone surveillance data by America’s National Security Agency and the UK spy centre the GCHQ.

    Snowdon put his life in danger and chose a path of vilification and exile for the cause of truth, freedoms and civil liberties of his compatriots and world citizens. Doesn’t that define him as a hero?

    You can’t help but feel sorry for Edward Snowden. He’s been stuck in the Russian airport for too long. It’s great two Latin American countries have offered him asylum. But will he get through airspace to land in Ecuador or Venezuela.
