On Asylum and Edward Snowden

Someone please explain to me how Edward Snowden looking to Russia for asylum makes any sense whatsoever if his motivation was whistleblowing on a country that was spying on its own citizens. That is kind of like moving from New England to Alaska because you think new England gets too much snow.

This story is getting weirder and weirder every minute.

And yeah, if his final destination is Cuba or Argentina, as I have seen posited, then this really isn't a lot better. Cuba is .. well .. Cuba .. and Argentina doesn't exactly have a long history of democracy.
