A source at the airline company was quoted as saying that, from Cuba, he would fly on to Venezuela. Both countries are believed unlikely to comply with any US extradition request.The situation with Edward Snowden and his saga is as they say fluid. Yesterday he released some sort of information to somebody in China. Today he is in Moscow headed somewhere else.
Whistleblowing website Wikileaks has issued a statement saying that it has helped to find him "political asylum in a democratic country".
My personal posture about him is to be highly interested in getting as much information as I can about what is happening. I am not in a position to accurately asses Edward Snowden's personality, motivations or character. I regard him as neither a demon nor a saint.
7:50 AM PT: From the Atlantic Wire:
Russia's Interfax reports Snowden has landed in Russia and will spend the intervening hours before his flight to Havana in the airport without ever crossing through border control and therefore out of Russian jurisdiction. He's still allegedly heading to Venezuela. But, on the other hand, there's a rising tide of people who think Snowden is really headed for Ecuador because of Wikileaks involvement. To that end, Ecuadorian diplomats met Snowden at the airport.
