WASHINGTON, D.C. – Just in case you missed it, Federal District Judge Richard Leon sorta slapped back the Obama Administration this week.
Judge Leon ruled the NSA probably (not definitely), violates the constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure when it collects communication information from Americans.
One guy digging the heck out of this is NSA leaker Eddie “The Snowman” Snowden, who’s hoping to be on his way to Rio, or anywhere in Brazil, maybe.
Snowden is living somewhere in Russia, but apparently the winters there can’t compare to the milder weather of Brazil.
So, The Snowman has written an open letter to the people of Brazil in which he offers to help investigate NSA crimes against the Brazilian people.
In exchange, The Snowman wants Brazil to grant him asylum.
Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff might not be interested, though. Yes, she canceled a state visit with President Obama when she learned the NSA had tapped her phones.
But that was before Brazlian media reported Brazil also spied on US diplomats visiting the country in 2003 and 2004.
