    Misdemeanor of misusing the agency’s computer system? Seriously? Every Government worker is guilty of that be it IRS employees, SEC, FCC, DoD, and the White House. That was a bull**** charge. The Government gave him a take it or leave it position and when you are $150,000 in debt, you tend to take something despite the truthfulness to it.

    You misread that. Snowden wouldn't travel to certain countries because of US presence in those countries, like NATO members because CIA and FBI would be waiting for him when he landed.

    Umm...no, everyone isn't guilty of that. Do you even know what that consists of?

    I'm guessing you don't. Please, the actual legal definition.

    No, I didn't misread that. I was playing the devil's advocate.
    The rest of the world can't stop the FBI and CIA anyway (apparently, although they could if they wanted to) so what does it matter?

    Countries with extradition treaties can't stop them or rely on US Government Aid (carrot/stick approach). Countries without can.. which is why Russia is a perfect place to go.
