Poor Edward Snowden. The man performed a valuable public service. He should get a medal on this Independence Day. Instead, he will have to face the music.
"As Snowden looks for asylum, doors slam around the world, " says the International Herald Tribune.
Tuesday, the Russians seemed to close their doors to him. Ecuador seems to be withdrawing its invitation. Venezuela and Bolivia are still possibilities.
But like Julian Assange, he may be forced to hole up in some gloomy embassy. Or worse, he may be handed over to the US for a full program of torture. Yes, they could force him to watch TV! Or a Senate hearing! Or listen to Lee Greenwood whine on the radio!
He will surely want to slit his wrists after a few hours... saving the feds the cost of killing him.
Yes, the music Snowden will face, if he is delivered to the Americans, will be grim. He will be charged with treason... which comes with a funeral dirge.
