Snowden granted (provisional) asylum
Posted by Charles II on July 24, 2013
From RT. It’s provisional, meaning that it’s not official–he just has permission to leave the airport. But it’s hard to believe they’d let him into the country and then ship him off to the US.
In any case, we probably won’t be getting any NSA stories for a while, but he’s now in Russia proper. He gets three months reprieve, may get permanent resident status, and is reportedly planning to apply for a job.
Wonder if the Russians could use someone with great computer skills and an extensive knowledge of the NSA.
Update: Well, it’s unclear what the Russians are doing. Supposedly they handed him a copy of Crime and Punishment. If it was in English, I guess he’s got a week in the airport. If it’s in Russian…
So maybe what he’s got on those laptops is Rosetta Stone?
