Snowden free to cooperate with Germany: Kremlin

Nov 2 2013, 7:42am CDT | by IANS

Moscow, Nov 2 (IANS) Former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden is free to cooperate with Germany on reports of the alleged US tapping of Chancellor Angela Merkel's telephone conversations, the Kremlin said Saturday.

Moscow, Nov 2 — Former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden is free to cooperate with Germany on reports of the alleged US tapping of Chancellor Angela Merkel's telephone conversations, the Kremlin said Saturday.

Snowden has to obey Russian laws since he is on Russian territory after being granted temporary asylum, but still "he is free to meet with anybody," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, Xinhua reports.

Snowden is willing to help Berlin in its probe into the possible US spying in Germany, according to German opposition lawmaker Christian Stroebele, who met the former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor in Moscow.

"I look forward to speaking with you in your country when the situation is resolved, and thank you for your efforts to uphold international law that protect us all," Snowden said in a letter addressed to Merkel, the German parliament and German federal prosecutors.

Snowden said the US government continues to treat dissent as defection and seeks to criminalise political speech with felony charges that provide no defence.

He also said that with the support of the international community, the US government will "abandon this harmful behaviour."

According to Peskov, the materials obtained by German media were not circulated from Russia. Snowden has said earlier that he had passed all his archive to journalists when he was in Hong Kong and had no access to it any longer.

Stroebele said Snowden is prepared to travel to Germany to testify.

However, Snowden's lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told Russian media that it is impossible for Snowden to leave Russia to be questioned by German prosecutors but he can provide testimony inside Russia.

This weekend is the People's Climate March, which will almost certainly be the largest climate march in U.S. history. It is more than just a march about the environment, though, it is an opportunity to begin building a mass movement, one that has the potential to radically change the course of U.S. politics. As all of us living through this increasingly dire period of American history know, environmental devastation is just one of the many serious problem ...

Open-Ended Lies

Sep 16 2014 1:56pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Today, the United States moves forward with plans to attack ISIS, alongside the help of unlikely allies. Our government does so aware of the fact that many, if not most Americans disapprove. The American population is fearful of ISIS. Clearly, our government is too. But our fears may stem from different places. And our solutions may vary drastically, too. When there's such a great difference between what the American po ...

Have they cut it off yet? The penis attached to traitorous transsexual Chelsea Manning, I mean. How else to explain the level of feverish disturbance necessary for the former Private Bradley to pen an op-ed saying we should "let ISIS succeed" in its mission to destroy half the Middle East, murdering, raping and torturing anyone in its way.  There's no doubt that dealing with ISIS, the Islamic State or whatever those barbarian nutcases are ...
