I know readers think I write too much about Edward Snowden, but I want to make sure we don’t forget him.
Here I am again, writing about Edward Snowden. Edward Snowden got another award. The students at Glasgow University in Scotland elected him their student liaison rector. I don’t exactly know what this means in his life. He certainly can’t go Scotland and become their rector. He steps foot on British soil and he’ll be arrested and turned over to the U.S. authorities for prosecution.
The students elected him by 3,000+ votes. He was put on the ballot because the students think what he did is very patriotic and courageous. It took courage for him to, basically, give up his life for what he believed in. He’s now a man without a country. He can’t go anywhere because U.S. government cancelled his passport. He literally has no place where he can live unless some country gives him asylum. Russia only granted him asylum for one year, after that, he’ll have to find another country that will allow him in. Maybe Russia will extend the time he’s allowed to stay. If Russia tells him he has to leave the country, he’ll have to return to the U.S. and face espionage charges. I know his days in Russia are running short. I appreciate everything Edward Snowden’s done for the citizens of the U.S. and for freedom. It took guts for him to do what he did. I hope he finds a country that will give his refuge. But no matter where Edward Snowden lives, his life will always be on the line. The U.S. will not stop looking for him until it brings him home and puts him on trial, or kills him.
