Breaking: Snowden leaves Hong Kong for Russia and parts unknown. Update: Lands in Moscow

posted at 8:01 am on June 23, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

This story broke while most of us were sleeping and the events are moving quickly this morning. But in addition to Greenwald at The Guardian and Reuters, we’re seeing confirmation from ABC news and CNN is running with it, so this looks pretty legit as of this writing. Edward Snowden has left Hong Kong on a jet bound for Russia.

Edward Snowden left for Moscow on Sunday and his final destination may be Cuba, Ecuador, Iceland or Venezuela, according to various reports. The move is bound to infuriate Washington, wherever he ends up.

Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted a source at the Aeroflot airline as saying there was a ticket in Snowden’s name for a Moscow-Cuba flight. Itar-Tass cited a source as saying Snowden would fly from Havana to the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.

The South China Morning Post said his final destination may be Ecuador or Iceland.

How did he slip out of Hong Kong with the entire world watching? Well, apparently it wasn’t really much of a trick at all, because Hong Kong essentially just let him go. Again, this is very early reporting coming out, but this is allegedly the dispatch from Hong Kong to the United States, showing up in a few sources.

HongKongRelease

The release is particularly interesting for a few reasons. First, the statement that Snowden left the country, “on his own accord” and through, “a lawful and normal channel.” Hong Kong is going to great lengths to give the appearance that they were simply crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s. They claim that our request to detain Snowden, “did not fully comply with Hong Kong law,” so there was no avenue to arrest or detain him. Of course, in reality, we’re talking about Hong Kong here. If they were really interested, they could have snapped him up and tossed him in a cell on little more basis than simply not liking the look on his face. At least a hint at the reason for their actions might be found in the final paragraph.

Meanwhile, the HKSAR Government has formally written to the US Government requesting clarification on earlier reports about the hacking of computer systems in Hong Kong by US Government agencies. The HKSAR Government will continue to follow up on the matter so as to protect the legal rights of the people of Hong Kong.

Why include that in a release which is ostensibly a response to a request for the issuance of an arrest warrant and an update on Snowden’s status? Seems like a pretty deliberate thumb in the eye to me.

As to Snowden’s destination, ABC is confirming that the flight Snowden is on is heading for Russia, and then to Cuba on Monday. However, Greenwald is already making a point of saying that’s not the whole story.

The fact that a person flies to City X does not mean that is their intended ultimate destination.

As noted above, the current guesses (and that’s all they are) regarding Snowden’s final destination include Venezuela and Iceland. But this could get even more interesting if Vlad Putin puts on his shirt and stops shining his Superbowl ring long enough to take an interest. Should he wish to insert Russia into this story, he can stop that plane with one phone call and make Snowden a “guest” in his country. That would complicate matters considerably and take it to the next level. Plus, CNN is reporting, along with ABC, that Snowden is flying in the company of a Wikileaks representative, who may or may not be involved in funding his globetrotting activities. Yet another fly in the ointment. Should be more updates later, so stay tuned.

Program Note: Your regularly scheduled Sunday morning talking heads open thread will be coming up in the next slot, albeit a bit later than usual.

UPDATE: (Jazz) It’s probably going to be a fairly uncomfortable morning for White House National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, who had this to say just last night:

“We believe that the charges presented, present a good case for extradition under the treaty, the extradition treaty between the United States and Hong Kong,” Donilon told CBS Radio News White House correspondent Mark Knoller. “Hong Kong has been a historically good partner of the United States in law enforcement matters, and we expect them to comply with the treaty in this case.”

UPDATE: (Jazz) Reports coming in that Snowden has landed in Moscow and was “whisked off” in a black car. Destination unknown, but the Russians aren’t commenting yet.

Of course the traitor Snowden is flying with Wikileaks people. Anti-American birds of a feather flock together. I want this guy captured soon. Don’t need another Julian Assange situation where Snowden posts videos and gives interviews on a regular basis.

This is too rich! Snowden is being aided in escaping US espionage charges by our good friends/sarc, China and Russia. My opinion is that the leaders of both these countries despise Obama. They just love putting him in his place. This has to be a lot of fun for them.

And now he is being flown to either Venezuela, another Marxist thug country or Cuba, JayZ and Beyoncé’s favorite vacation spot.

This reminds me – Does anyone remember a movie with that famous Russian ballet dancer, where he defects to the US, only on a tour his plane comes down in Russia and he is detained with a black US tap dancer who previously defected to Russia. They both try and figure out ways to get out of Russia. Old movie.

Don’t let any of this high drama distract you from the Gang of Eight Plus Two betrayal. Reid is bent on passing the “immigration reform” bill in the Senate before Independence Day, optics and all of that being considered in his beady bird brain.

Reid must owe the SEIU illegal aliens quite a bankroll. Graham must be beholden to the GA chicken processors.

How come we can have a president who has traveled abroad as a college kid, associated with known terrorists and studied in Moslem schools in Indonesia and we have never been able to see his passport info, yet the NSA, with his blessing, feels the need to store ALL of the phone and email records (of American citizens) for use at a later date.

I am not sure if Snowden is a bad guy or not. I am glad that this is being discussed though.

To bad it is over shadowing the return of America to Mexico, spearheaded by Graham, McCain and Rubio.

So much for entrusting his fate to the people of Hong Kong.

This should chill you. In fact, maybe it will turn bluegill blue.

I want HAL banned just as much as I want twerp to be returned.

I think it’s helpful not to make it sound like a personal grudge thing. i.e. “Ban the disruptive leftist trolls” sounds less like a urination competition with a white whale.

That thing you’re talking to is troll and may have communicable diseases.

The only thing halfway decent about Chuckles is his niece Amy, who’s a stand-up comic and really pretty. But her routines are filthy and foul-mouthed. So I’ll bother giving our Chuckie half a point.

Did I just hear Schumer infer that Russia is an ally of the US (on CNN)?

“Not how a good ally acts”….

I’ve got $5 on Iceland. That’s where I’d go. They make nice sweaters, too.

If I can get enough of them, I’ll be sending Management HAL’s own posts when I write. I seek to display his history of abuse. There’s plenty, but I didn’t save the quotes until recently. If anyone has them, I would like them, please.
