MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Somewhere on this spinning blue marble we like to call Earth is Eddie ‘The Snowman’ Snowden, the high-school dropout who gained access to some of America’s top-secret secrets, gave them to the media, then went off the grid in Hong Kong.
Uncle Sam sent word that we wanted him arrested, but Hong Kong may have let him fly to Moscow, where he may be trying to get passage to Ecuador.
Again, Uncle Sam put out the word, but Russian President Vladimir Putin is playing the coy card, “Snowden is still in transit area as a transit passenger. Our special services never worked with Snowden and are not working with him today.”
This is the same Vladimir Putin who ripped off a New England Patriots Super Bowl ring, remember?
So, now, this story is starting to look like that Tom Hanks movie, The Terminal, where a guy is stuck in limbo in an airport terminal.
No one has seen Snowden, except for his interview with a British newspaper. For all we know, the snowman is still in Hong Kong, or in some other airport in some other country.
