Edward Snowden Breaking News: Russia Official: Venezuela Last Chance for Snowden

by Wochit 1:07 mins

Influential Russian parliament member, Alexei Pushkov, who often speaks for the Kremlin is encouraging NSA leaker Edward Snowden to accept Venezuela's offer of asylum. Edward Snowden has found supporters in Latin America, including three countries who have offered him asylum. But many obstacles stand in the way of the fugitive NSA leaker from leaving a Russian airport ? chief among them the power and influence of the United States. In an acknowledgement that the manhunt for the fugitive leaker Edward Snowden had something to do with Bolivian President Evo Morales' plane's unexpected diversion to Austria, Spain said it had been warned along with other European countries that former U.S. intelligence worker was aboard the plane. It is unclear whether the US warned Madrid about the Bolivian president's plane. U.S. officials will not detail their conversations with European countries, except to say that they have stated the U.S.'s general position that it wants Snowden back.
