Edward Snowden, the self-glamorizing leaker of National Security Agency secret programs, is still holed up in an airport in Moscow , where he’s been stuck for two weeks. The United States has warned Russia and other countries not to let him travel by air. Snowden is hoping to make it to Venezuela, out of reach of the U.S. government, which has promised to prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law.
The fact is that Snowden, who bills himself as a kind of freedom fighter, has chosen some quite unlikely host countries to help him in his quest, countries with questionable to abysmal records of media freedom:
