  • Do NOT go in there.
This entire article is built on a half-truth. It is not that Snowden has taken asylum in any country. Indeed, many other countries offer far more stringent protections for those in exile from America.

It is that Snowden has taken exile specifically in China, a Communist country (albeit in a district not controlled by that government) that has a protracted history of taking advantage of the United States, both through trade and by the sale of large amounts of debt. Topping all of this off is that he revealed his leaks through the most heavily anti-American member of the American press, Glenn Greenwald.

The skeptics have good reason to suspect that the Chinese are harboring Snowden for their own purposes, including espionage.
