Boeing, Aeroflot Finalize Order for 22 787 Dreamliners

With the aid of  the whistle-blowing organization, WikiLeaks, Edward Snowden has left Hong Kong and is on a circuitous journey to an undisclosed location.

Hong Kong has not complied with the US’s extradition order, which requested that they detain Snowden and transfer him to the custody of American officials, who would take him back to the United States to stand trial for espionage, theft, and conversion of government property.

The HKSAR Government issued a statement on the situation:

Mr. Edward Snowden left Hong Kong today (June 23) on his own accord for a third country through a lawful and normal channel. The US Government earlier on made a request to the HKSAR Government for the issue of a provisional warrant of arrest of Mr. Snowden.  Since the documents provided by the US Government did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law, the HKSAR Government has requested the US Government to provide additional information so that the Department of Justice could consider whether the US Government’s request can meet the relevant legal conditions.  As the HSKAR Government has yet to have sufficient information to process the request for a provisional warrant of arrest, there is no legal basis to restrict Mr. Snowden from leaving Hong Kong.

The HKSAR Government has already informed the US Government of Mr. Snowden’s departure.

The press release also contained a small warning to US officials:

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.

While Snowden’s final destination is undisclosed, he left Hong Kong today on a flight bound for Russia, accompanied by a WikiLeaks legal advisor. He will be seeking asylum in a third country – some possibilities that have been mentioned are Ecuador, Iceland, and Venezuela.

Edward Snowden, a former NSA employee, blew the whistle earlier this month on a massive government surveillance program that secretly invaded the privacy of innocent Americans for years.

Yesterday it was announced that a petition for Snowden’s full pardon had exceeded the 100,000 signatures necessary for official attention. Much of America will be on the edge of their seats, cheering from the sidelines, as he continues to elude arrest in series of events that seem like the plot of a spy movie.

As of today, at least, Edward Snowden remains a free man.

    In France police are arresting people without a charge. And a judge jailed a Young man because he refuses to do a DNA test.

    Well, Edward, I know you did the right thing, it’s just that you will have to pay for that choice you made. In all you are a hero, a true American fighting a corrupt government. You must remember the sheeple don’t understand.

  • RickE.

    I wish him well! Pathetic that a so-called communist country is safer and more accommodating than the good old USSA in many respects.

  • RickE.

    By the way, I LOVE that press release!!

  • Titus

    The cat is out of the bag. I am not talking about Snowden departure.

  • http://sgtreport Brue

    why is media focusing on Snowden? the atrocity is the unconstitutional spying on American citizens. wake up America.

  • Al Kipf

    We should thank the Russians and Chinese for getting this guy safely away from the American thugocracy.

  • Ken, your UK friend

    Hi RickE. It is a great pleasure to read your posts. Most of the major cities in Russia except Vladivostok recently came online on Google Maps and so far we observe only Moscow has just a couple of CCTV’s. The buildings look grey, bland, kinda depressing in say Archangelsk. Pavements and roads badly in need of re-surfacing, but however, the summer shots show bathers in rivers and Political Correctness has yet to catch on in rural Siberia. BTW it is picture postcard country and these people have no idea what a prepper is but their way of life probably demonstrates a Community Spirit you and I may be quite jealous of in terms of ability to survive. This’ll piss off most of the spys reading my near personal communication between me and a friend the other side of the pond called RickE. I believe in a sensible Free Market for most things, Moderate Christian, not Evangelical yet when push comes to shove it is Christ who I uphold as Highest upon High not any other authority.
    But couldnt resist a quick online borrow of Mr Alex Jones’ Bullhorn to shout
    “Советский Союз!”
    just to throw confusion into the air. A smokescreen from his supporters so Edward can dive for cover.
    Edward is Hero! He should be knighted for his services to the Voices of Sense and Reason.
    We have had enough abuse from the State and we the undersigned feel we cannot take any more.
    Thankyou.

    • RickE.

      Ken, thanks for your kind words! Your posts are always good to read.
      I’ve been to Mongolia and I enjoyed it immensely! Great local people there.

      However, it’s a good thing that you live in the UK, as I’m sure by now that you’re on the “LIST”. lol. I hope that I am.

      Russia would be a more prudent choice to disappear in for Snowden. Iceland has great folks there, but it’s so small that locating a person would not be difficult.
      Russia is HUGE. No matter what his choice is, I wish him the best of luck. He’s gonna need it!

  • farang

    I think you meant “HKSAR”, not HSKAR…it stands for the Hong Kong Special Adminstrative Region….isn’t like being in the Twilight Zone, when Russia and China offer more freedom then the good ol’ USA? I love Hong Kong, and recommend it as an alternative holiday destination over ANY US location, anywhere.

    • Ken, your UK friend

      Sawadee Kraap Farang (Prayer sign). I’m long overdue for a holiday in Thailand. I also love Hong Kong because there is no city in America or Europe where you can hop on the MTR in the financial district and step off on a secluded beach 20 minutes later. Hong Kong fully believe in the free market, detest Gubmint regulations yet always have incense burners to give offerings to the Gods. The Temple at 黃大仙 is a top attraction in Hong Kong. Reason? You are only entitled to prosperity in as much as your capacity to wish same on fellow men, at the same time honouring family and remembering where you are coming from. I dont habitually burn incense but I feel moved to buy some today.
      What I am I freely give away and even if I was homeless and hungry on the streets, in my heart I am living the full life.
      Thankyou.

  • Andy

    Glad he out smarted the Stasi,and got away again!It is a shame that,what Paul Harvey said years ago,that it appears that we( the USA) are passing Russia,as they are becoming more like us as we are becoming more like what they used to be.It looks like he got that right though.It is terrible what has happened here and what more there is to come.Be prepared and ready.Keep your powder dry.

  • Ken, your UK friend

    If we met Edward in a social gathering a year ago we would give him the cold shoulder and suspect he has motives. So have I signed various Official Secrets Acts even for temporary jobs. I’m well connected yet if I lost my job, age 48, this is the main reason I would never work again especially after outsourcing most jobs to the 3rd world, so I have nothing to lose. And, if I have already voiced enough anti establishment views on websites like this to deserve hanging, I have zero strength or inclination to be an activist, I wouldnt know where to begin, but some people have this disease called a Conscience LOL. Had I lived in a house besides recent riots in Brazil, Turkey, Greece etc I would just run as fast as my 2 legs could carry me to a pre determined bug out. I cant change the system. However, I’m loud mouthed and opinionated, not quite the English Alex Jones LOL, but, I’d still better shut up and let someone else speak LOL
    Cheers!
