Venezuela offers Asylum to NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden

Venezuela offers Asylum to NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden
 
 

The President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro offered asylum to Edward Snowden in a recent speech. After being rejected by many countries, the governments of which he beseeched for asylum, the NSA whistleblower finally has a chance in a South American nation.


Edward Snowden is the man who divulged America’s secret documents that prove that it was spying on the world. This potent knowledge cost him his peace of mind. He has been a runaway ever since the day he leaked the confidential information. According to Reuters, currently Snowden is holed up in Moscow while the United States is demanding that he be handed over. A number of countries have received requests for asylum by the man who knows too much. But none have paid any heed to his entreaty. The only exception is Venezuela, which has offered to grant asylum to Snowden. The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro flouted the US extradition request and said that his government was willing to offer political succor and humanitarian shelter to the hunted individual.

Meanwhile Nicaragua, another country came close by offering asylum if the circumstances permitted it.  The US is trying its best to get hold of Edward Snowden whom it considers a common criminal. But a few other nations do not see eye to eye with the United States of America. The Venezuelan President spoke of how just because he was a rebel and spoke the truth, Edward Snowden became a marked man in the eyes of the US government. He also taunted the European nations which had weak leaders who couldn’t stand up to the might of the United States. He derisively called them “Colonies of the United States”.

It appears to be the case that Edward Snowden is in somewhat of a fix. Moscow’s patience is giving way to irritation as it does not want to ruin diplomatic relations with Washington. European governments have disallowed the use of their airspace. This means a flight to South America will have to stop at Vladivostok and then fly over the Pacific Ocean. After being rejected by 21 countries, Snowden applied to six more.

The names of these countries were not revealed by WikiLeaks due to the ever-present danger of US interference. The Nicaraguan President, Daniel Ortega is fiercely anti-American and has time and again spoken out against the imperial superpower to the North. He is a close second contender for asylum provision to Snowden after the Venezuelan President. Edward Snowden has a very small chance of making it to one of these two countries in South America. The US government meanwhile is hot on his heels and using all the political pressure and economic clout it can to force other countries to spurn his appeals for solace.
