Russian Lawyer: Snowden Could Soon Leave Moscow Airport for City

A Russian lawyer for National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden says his client could leave the transit area of a Moscow airport as early as Wednesday and enter the city pending the receipt of the necessary paperwork. Snowden has been sheltering in the airport for exactly a month as of today as the United States has filed espionage charges and launched a global campaign to block his asylum bids in a number of countries. Lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told Reuters Snowden believes U.S. efforts have made it unsafe for him to leave Russia and travel to Latin America, where three countries have offered asylum. He said Snowden should soon receive papers allowing him to remain in Moscow after applying for temporary asylum in Russia last week.

I am rooting for Edward Snowden and any other person who has the guts and conscious to expose misconduct that our government practices against its people.

The U.S. government was built and has continued through decades to use and abuse its wall of protection called laws.

Remember, just because a law is set forth does not mean it is right and is in the best interest of protecting all. The constituents of our government have shown nothing but its one-sided agenda to feed its appetite for control and folding money.

It is our right to know if our government is collecting, storing and looking over everything we do. Every word typed, every web search, every telephone call is a open forum for the U.S.
