Bolivia Threatens To Close US Embassy After Edward Snowden Plane Incident

• Associated Press
President Evo Morales has warned that he could close the US Embassy in Bolivia as South America's leftist leaders rallied to support him after his presidential plane was re-routed amid suspicions that NSA leaker Edward Snowden was on board. Morales again blamed Washington for pressuring European countries to refuse to allow his plane to fly through their airspace on Tuesday, forcing it to land in Vienna, Austria, in what he called a violation of international law. He had been returning from a summit in Russia during which he had suggested he would be willing to consider Snowden's request for asylum.
"We do not need the embassy of the United States," said Morales, adding that leaders of his party had asked him to take action. "We don't need them to come here with the excuse of cooperation."
