Edward Snowden, Obama’s Great White Waldo–I Mean, Whale

White_Waldo

In the wake of Edward Snowden’s meeting with reps from human rights organizations at Sheremetyevo Airport, the White House and State Department contend that he is not a human rights activist nor a whistle blower. The State Department is reportedly putting the squeeze on Latin America countries which have offered Snowden asylum. Last week the U.S. pressured allies to force the Bolivian president’s plane to land in Austria, a serious breach of international law causing uproar at the U.N. and the removal of South American ambassadors from European embassies. Obama looks increasingly desperate to harpoon the elusive “hacker”.
