    Good he deserves asylum wherever it may be. Im sure it does have major political reasons, but its only one year then he will have to find another home.

    I suspect Snowden will discover Russia is the international equivalent of a roach motel... he can check in, but he can't check out.

    At least, not until they are through with him.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

    What is the up side to Russia to grant asylum to Snowden?
    Snowden will eventually be pardoned.... I suppose it will take 70% of this nation to pull their heads out their asses tho...

    That's not going to happen. I'd be interested to hear your reasoning, though.

    People who have been long dead have been pardoned for crimes........

    You don't have to be alive to be pardoned.

    Besides, Snowden isn't exactly Benedict Arnold.

    Hell, "Squeaky" Fromme was pardoned.

    Snowden may very well be the catalyst that woke people up to something that will forever change the world... DATA MINING. The very concept of such a practice is evil.

    I can't say strongly enough how deeply I oppose this...

    I bet Russia won't put him in a job that requires trust.

    I am sure this is not the last we have Heard of him.

    Just FYI, Fromme was not pardoned.

    They're trying to use him as a propagandist on their (Russia's) version of facebook. Like "Tokyo Rose." At least they "offered" Snowden the position however, given the fact Snowden was offered refugee status I don't know if it's "a deal he can refuse."

    If I was in his position I would have already been back in the US....

    Illegal aliens have shown us that sneaking over the border isn't that difficult....

    I'm pulling for Snowden candidly. BUT... he also is now one Ace in Putin's hand in the upcoming meeting with Obama.
