U.S. pens letter to Russia promising protections for Snowden

• Reuters
 Former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden would not face the death penalty or be tortured and would have all the protections of the U.S. civilian court system if he were sent home, the chief U.S. prosecutor wrote in a letter to his Russian counterpart this week. 

In the letter dated July 23 and released on Friday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder wrote that he sought to dispel claims about what would happen to Snowden if Russia handed him over to face charges of illegally disclosing government secrets about surveillance programs.

Either Snowden is extremely brave, or he is extremely stupid, or he is being well paid, or the whole thing is a farce and a drama set up by the U.S.. Notice that Snowden fled to China and then to Russia. Then look at the article at

Next, ask yourself, What was Snowden carrying as he went from China to Russia? Is he a transporter?
