    Surprised there wasn't anything posted about this. Russia has granted Ed Snowden asylum for one year. According to the story he has not applied for permanent asylum at this point.

    Way to show the world you stand for freedom by getting in bed with Putin. Wouldn't expect anything less from a libertarian.

    As opposed to going to some nice, compliant US ally such as Australia, New Zealand or the UK? Somewhere they'd be all too happy to hand him over to stay in Uncle Sugar's good books? I'm sure Bradley Manning shares your skepticism.

    So, let's recap, members and moderators.

    Is anything I said false?
    I am not inflaming the passions of the membership.
    I am stating rather settled realities that should be clear to all.
    It's a fucking joke this dude is going to be quaffing vodka for a year with no consequence.
