Like others are expressing now I from the start said he was a TRAITOR in the pole Cityboy started last week.

Sometimes I get it right from the start...

Latin America furious over Bolivia incident in Snowden saga

By Louise Egan

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Latin American leaders slammed European governments on Wednesday for diverting Bolivian President Evo Morales' plane on rumors it was carrying a wanted former U.S. spy agency contractor, adding a new diplomatic spat to the Edward Snowden saga.

Morales was returning from Moscow on Tuesday when France and Portugal abruptly banned his plane from entering their airspace due to suspicions that Snowden, wanted by Washington for leaking secrets, was onboard. Italy and Spain also banned the Bolivian plane from their skies.

The unusual treatment of the Bolivian military aircraft touched a sensitive nerve in the region, which has a history of U.S.-backed coups. Several furious presidents from across the region rallied behind Morales and protests erupted on the streets of Bolivia.

"(These are) vestiges of a colonialism that we thought were long over. We believe this constitutes not only the humiliation of a sister nation but of all South America," Argentine President Cristina Kirchner said in a speech in Buenos Aires.

Heads of state in the 12-nation South American bloc Unasur denounced the "unfriendly and unjustifiable acts" and some members wanted an emergency summit in Bolivia. Ministers from the bloc will meet to discuss the affair in Lima on Thursday.

The bloc includes the leftist leaders of Venezuela, Ecuador, Argentina and Bolivia as well as more moderate ones in Chile and Brazil. Nicaragua, Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador were among the other Latin American countries speaking out against the Europeans' actions.

"These are times of sovereign, democratic, popular governments that won't be pushed around by foreign powers," said Venezuelan communications minister Ernesto Villegas.

Brazil's foreign ministry spokesman said the government would not comment on its own because Unasur would do so collectively. The Chilean foreign ministry issued a statement saying it "lamented" what happened to Morales and that more clarity was needed on the facts.

I was pretty happy with what the NSA is doing to US citizens coming to light. That was a pretty heroic and an appreciated action from my point of view. However, loading up four laptops worth of other information and hauling *ss for Russia? WTF? He burned through all that good will very quickly.

I agree...I also think there is far less of the "hero" here and far more of a self-serving interest and big time ego.

It sure seems like it. Sadly the best thing he did by exposing the NSA will now be buried in his other actions.

One day the CIA will take this guy out. Not now, too much publicity. No it will be a regular morning a few years down the line and a "Drunk Driver" will run him over on the sidewalk. Hit and run, police have no leads, oh no how sad. It'll happen.

Or maybe he'll just never leave the airport...a sort of X-file mystery...the man who never returned.

I personally think it will be sooner rather than later, before any more damage is done. Never mind the "too much publicity" - why should the CIA or whoever care about too much publicity for an alleged assassination. The risk he poses whilst he has a tongue in his mouth is far more important than the publicity of taking him out.
