/// Venezuela Offers Snowden Asylum

July 6, 2013  |  All Things Digital

Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden — whom the U.S. government is trying to arrest him for revealing classified information about its spying programs — has been offered asylum by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. “He is a young man who has told the truth, in the spirit of rebellion, about the United States spying on the whole world,” said Maduro. It’s not clear if Snowden, who is reportedly still in the transit area of Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow, has accepted the offer, but he has made appeals for asylum from several countries.
