Snowden case: Diplomatic drama surrounds Bolivia plane

The disastrous re-routing of the plane of the Bolivian president on suspicion that Snowden was on board may have long-term implications for US foreign relations.  

I found remarkable what Bolivian President Evo Morales said about some European Nations  :

“I regret this, but I want to say that some European countries should free themselves from American imperialism"
By the way,  why has nt the Obama administration apologized to the President of Bolivia?   One does not need to be a genius to realize that France, Portugal and Spain acted to re-route the plane so it can be searched for Snowden under pressure from the administration.   Although no one has admitted that, it is the only rational explanation for the incident.  

So, will the Obama administration apologize to the President of Bolivia?  Of course and they will not.   But they should.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
