Where Should Edward Snowden Have Placed Himself After Publication?

He is/was in Hong Kong.....I think he should have marched up to the White House gates and presented himself for arrest with major media in tow, and given a revolutionary speach.

What say you?

@hawkeye10,
I think that before he does all that, he should write chapter and verse about where all the metaphorical bodies are buried, and distribute copies of those to various legal eagles around the world, with strict instruction that they should be put into the public domain should he fail to report his whereabouts on a regular basis

The western spooks would love him just to appear and give himself up without any forethought. He would be instantly disappeared before he had a chance to make his case.

@hawkeye10,
He should have gone to Iceland first. Either that or just not revealed his name.

@engineer,
i dont think you can claim to be a champion of law and be a fugitive of the law at the same time. he should have offered himself up as a martyr.

the worst outcome would be to offer his services to the Chinese in exchange for not sending him back, not that the chinese can be trusted though. I worry that he went to china hopping they would offer him a deal for us computer secrets, something that they want and that would hurt us.

I'm glad you are so willing to consider sacrificing Snowden into political martydom Hawkeye. Rolling Eyes Razz

I'm on the side where he should be universally pardoned and given a Congressional medal of honor/freedom thingy.

revolutionary speach.

I think he has already given up his home life, significant other (who he really shafted) and job (where he was apparently making decent cash). I don't think he needs to do more than that.

Costa Rica. They've shown balls in harboring Julian Assange in their embassy. Maybe they'd do it for Snowden, too.

i dont think it likely that he will avoid prison probably for the rest of his life, the only question was the route.

a pardon is not likely either.

if he was wanting to escape a US prison without selling our secrets to an enemy i should think France would have been his best bet. i dont think it would work though.

the germans are super pissed about this invasion on individual rights and their rights, perhaps they would be willing to throw down with the US on this....

That really depends on if we continue with middle of the road to conservative presidents or if we get someone more to the left. I could see a liberal President issuing a pardon. If he can get to Iceland, they will probably let him in. He can be the new Bobby Fischer.

@Thomas,
Er, Equador, eh?

Or did I somehow miss a move to a Costa Rica embassy?

the way I understand it the US almost certainly has a secret arrest warrent out..if he tries to leave Hong Kong by normal means he would thus be arrested.

He certainly is saying all the right things when he talks to the press.
