    But having asylum from one of thee nations does him no good if he ever leaves those national borders.

    What am I supposed to "get over"? An accurate understanding of international convention?

      If, big if, the US doesn't kill or kidnap the guy, he will probably have permission to move around to a bunch of countries.

      Because they are really sick of this authoritarian crap, like a big part of the US citizens.

      I'll put myself out there. Bug me, USA, fuck you. Come and get me. Send a fucking drone. Fuck You.

      I believe that if he is granted asylum by, say, Bolivia, he will become a Bolivian citizen with a Bolivian passport. He could then, theoretically, travel to another country, but he would still have to avoid traveling someplace that has an extradition treaty with the U.S., because he would still be a wanted man.

      •  Ask Henry Kissinger how that works (0+ / 0-)

        Or Dick Cheney, or GW Bush.

        They ALL have warrants out on them from various countries, and dare not go anywhere near those countries.

        But otherwise they're living high and raking in the dough.

        If it's
        Not your body,
        Then it's
        Not your choice
        And it's
        None of your damn business!
