• AWWW: Edward Snowden Wants To Return To The U.S.

    The Ex-NSA Contractor and fugitive Edward Snowden wants to return to the United States:

    “Snowden is ready to return to the States, but on the condition that he is given a guarantee of a legal and impartial trial,” his Russian lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, said at a news conference Tuesday.

    Snowden has been in Russia since he fled the U.S. after leaking classified documents to the media, and has been homesick ever since. When he spoked to NBC last May, he said that he would like to return home, but not directly to a jail cell.

    “I don’t think there’s ever been any question that I’d like to go home. I mean, I’ve from day one said that I’m doing this to serve my country. Now, whether amnesty or clemency ever becomes a possibility is not for me to say. That’s a debate for the public and the government to decide,” Snowden said in the interview.

    Snowden has become a comic book hero for some, and traitor to many for his actions. Hollywood is even making the biopic film of him with Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring as the anti-NSA crusader.
