Edward Snowden as a phenomenon of an empty chair

46
Over the past two days, a lot of new information about Snowden has appeared in the press, both Russian and Western. More precisely, a lot of speculation, assumptions and conjectures. The “empty seat” blog has opened on Twitter - that is, that 17А flight SU150 “Moscow-Havana”, for which the registered Edward has not sat down. The blog has become popular; His visitors are busy with the fact that they also assume and wonder. Analysts and reporters put forward many versions: that Snowden now lives in Moscow, that he did not fly to Moscow at all and that the Chinese were hiding him, and that he was taken away in a black car with diplomatic numbers to the Ecuadorian embassy. There are more vague versions. One thing is clear to all: the people from WikiLeaks, who organized the flight of their ward and then disappeared, are high-class professionals. Not like American special agents who can only play tricks somewhere in sunny Columbia.




According to the RBC, Edward Snowden's empty blog on the Aeroflot flight on Twitter appeared after journalists found out that there was no fugitive on the plane.

The Twitter residents started out having nothing to do composing a network detective - from the point of view of the chair. RBC quotes examples of empty space in the cabin: “I feel empty”, “Journalists look at me viciously”, “The real threat to national security is food on board.”

Vladimir Azin (Utro.ru) writes:

“It is not excluded that Snowden did not dare to fly to Cuba, as he was afraid that the American authorities would force the plane to land when it flew over US territory. The fact that Washington can take such a step, said the pilot of one of the Russian airlines. “Theoretically, of course, they can (demand to sit down). And we will be forced to obey. Are you entitled to this? This is a question for lawyers, ”he said.


About the "territory" clarified "Voice of Russia":

“It is known that the plane Moscow - Havana (flight SU150) will fly in the area of ​​responsibility of American air traffic controllers. In this connection, disputes have already arisen as to whether they can forcibly “land” an aircraft in the United States ”.


Channel "NTV" reports that Snowden received refugee papers from the Ecuadorian authorities (recall that his American passport was canceled). According to Julian Assange, the receipt of these documents does not mean that the refugee will be granted political asylum in Ecuador, Reuters notes.

It is also known that the organization WikiLeaks sent requests for political asylum for Snowden to several different countries.

According to "BBC", Edward Snowden is now in a "safe place." This was stated by the founder of "WikiLeaks". Assange did not name the country in which the fugitive American and accompanying Wikileaks representative Sarah Harris are located. (American sources, for example, "New York Times"call her surname as Harrison - Sarah Harrison).

A White House press secretary, Jay Carney, believes Snowden is in Russia.

Michael John Smith is the latest spy who received his sentence for spying for the Soviet Union, said "Voice of Russia"that the revelations of Edward Snowden vividly highlight the degree of readiness of the US government to follow its desire to control information at the world level. He also noted that Snowden would be best to stay in Russia.

Comrade Smith said that almost "everything and everyone" is now under surveillance - "as an enemy or a threat to the United States." The rule of law principle loses its meaning when NSA or CIA structures have access to all information in cyberspace. Only thanks to such heroes as Snowden, says Smith, did we learn about American electronic espionage.

Michael John Smith believes that now the governments of all countries will begin to reconsider their attitude towards the United States in terms of how much they can be trusted as future partners. The very decision of the Hong Kong government to deny the United States a request to extradite Snowden was perceived positively, he said. This is "a good sign for anyone who wants to confront the United States, who wants to ensure respect for human rights, as well as access to the truth." Smith suggests that Hong Kong made this decision because he himself was dissatisfied with the fact that the United States was probably “already digging into computers” on its territory.

As for the Snowden flight, Smith noted in this respect:

“... Around the world, there is an enormous number of CIA operatives who can easily arrange the delivery of Snowden to the USA, or try to kill him on the spot. The fact that Snowden chose to fly by Aeroflot to Moscow shows that he was well informed about the safest route. I personally think that it would be best for Mr. Snowden to stay in Russia and settle here than to fly to a South American country, where the USA has been employing numerous agents and bribed local officials for decades. ”


America is scaring Russia with “consequences”.

Senator Lindsay Graham, for example, said that “the bulwark of freedom is clearly not China, not Russia, not Cuba and not Venezuela,” adding that if the Russians will shelter Snowden, this will not be without consequences, reports Gayane Chichakian ("RT").

Behind such a statement, one must assume, is an ordinary fear. Fear of new revelations, about which everyone in the US is worried - from the presidential administration to members of the Senate committees.

Dianne Feinstein, a senator from the state of California, said: "I think we need to know what exactly he has - maybe he has a lot more materials."

Exactly; it scares them. Therefore, Snowden's American passport was revoked - to interfere with his departure from Hong Kong. But Assange thought of everything: Snowden's 90-day Hong Kong visa was not expired, and his Ecuadorian refugee documents replaced him.

As Alexander Gasyuk writes ("Russian newspaper"), The United States does not show the spirit of cooperation, considering requests for extradition from the Russian authorities.

Moscow unsuccessfully wants Washington to extradite convicted in the US Viktor Bout and Konstantin Yaroshenko: they could serve their sentences in their homeland. A similar procedure is provided for by the Council of Europe convention. In 1990-ies, the United States became a haven for runaway employees of the Russian special services. The journalist cites as an example the prisoner of the former major general of the KGB, Oleg Kalugin, and the former officer of the SVR, Sergey Tretyakov, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Kalugin still lives in his home in Maryland, earning, among other things, bus trips to the “spy” places in Washington, previously used by Soviet intelligence. Tretyakov was given a house in Florida.

And in 2010, a former official of the SVR, Alexander Poteev, later convicted in absentia in Russia to 25 years of imprisonment, for treason and desertion, took refuge in the United States.

But in the United States, we add, all standards are double.

On June 10, the State Department threatened both Moscow and Beijing with “consequences” for ignoring the extradition requirements of Comrade Snowden. Once Snowden's passport has been revoked, the State Department said, other countries can only hand it over to America, and cannot fly it back and forth across the globe.

Olga Denisova ("Voice of Russia") recalls that the American lawyer and human rights activist, honorary president of the Center for the Protection of Constitutional Rights non-governmental organization Michael Ratner participated in the briefing for journalists together with Comrade Assange. He explained that the UN Convention relating to the Status of Refugees extends, among other things, to the category of persons to which both Assange and Snowden belong - “people persecuted for their political convictions”. He stressed that the US authorities have repeatedly referred to this rule.

“Therefore, it is now surprising — although perhaps not in this particular case — to see that the US is ignoring it and trying to obstruct” the person making the asylum request after criticizing in principle his own government, the lawyer said. He said that “protection under the Convention on the Status of Refugees is a trump card that“ interrupts ”any attempts to secure the extradition of Edward Snowden.” “After all, the very alleged“ crime ”for which they want to attract him is protected by the provisions of this convention and the rules of political asylum,” explained Comrade Ratner. In addition, according to the expert, international norms imply "non-interference in attempts to obtain political asylum."

There is no valid international arrest warrant for Snowden, the lawyer explained further. As for his “crimes”, these are “classic political crimes”.

More than 100000 people, writes further Olga Denisova, signed a petition calling for the US authorities to pardon Snowden in case of formal charges against him. The appeal was published on the White House website in early June. The text states that "Edward Snowden is a national hero, and a full and absolute pardon must be issued for all the crimes that he committed or could have committed regarding the declassification of data about the collection of information by the National Security Agency."

June 23 commented on Snowden comrade Pushkov. The head of the Duma’s international affairs committee sees no signs of a return to the Cold War in Moscow’s readiness to consider granting political asylum to Edward Snowden, reports "RT" with reference to Interfax.

“It is strange to hear that Snowden, as an ordinary passenger, flies a regular Hong Kong-Moscow flight. They really want to see him in the United States, but China did not pass him, - said Alexei Pushkov in a microblog on Twitter. “The reasoning is already that the Snowden refuge from our side will be an“ act of the Cold War. ” But if espionage in a wig is the norm, then refuge is not an act. ”

"Lenta.ru" talked about Snowden’s latest interview given to the Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post. It was published on 25 June.

According to Edward, he got a job as a system administrator in the “Booz Allen Hamilton” division in Hawaii with the goal of obtaining evidence of the surveillance of American intelligence services by citizens. His position provided him with access to a list of computers around the world monitored by NSA staff. He worked there for about three months.

Lenta writes that after disclosing secret programs of special services, the US authorities launched a criminal investigation into US Investigations Services, which selects personnel to work with state secrets. It turns out that when E. Snowden was hired to work at Booz Allen, neither this company nor USIS paid attention to the fact that the information in the candidate’s resume was false. The summary provided false information that Snowden attended Johns Hopkins University and the University of Liverpool.

One has only to be surprised at the carelessness and carelessness of those who add on their own who are obliged to ensure secrecy and are entitled to issue admissions. Undoubtedly, Snowden was well aware of the weak points of the system. He lied to the resume, probably in order to get the right job. After all, this man did not finish universities: he has only a certificate of secondary education (school).

Spencer Ackerman, Dan Roberts (Washington), Miriam Elder (Moscow) and Tanya Branigan (Hong Kong) write in The GuardianJay Carney said in Washington on Monday that the United States would not “surrender” if Snowden left Russia, and said that not only pressure was put on Ecuador, but contacts were being made through diplomatic channels with those countries that could serve as the end point or transit stop fugitive.

At a conference at the press center of the White House, British journalists say, the US administration rejected Snowden's comparison with previous “political dissidents”, which was made by one Russian journalist. “There is a big difference,” said Carney. “Snowden was charged with a criminal offense.” The Russian journalist who was trying to ask an additional question was immediately hooked up by another reporter.

Speaking in Delhi on Monday, US Secretary of State John Kerry was disappointed that China was unable to detain Snowden. He believes that Beijing has decided to "deliberately ignore" the situation, not wanting to "live by the standards of the law."

Mr. Kerry immediately received a response from the People's Daily. Chinese journalists called Snowden's actions "disrupting a sanctimonious mask from Washington."

“In a sense, the United States has gone from being the creators of a“ human rights model ”to a“ privacy interceptor, ”the newspaper said. The official mouthpiece of the Communist Party called the American authorities "manipulator" of the Internet, as well as "invader networks of other countries."

It remains to add that, in trying to catch the elusive Snowden, who knows the secret service system from the inside, the White House is not nervous because of the “criminal case” or insubordination of Moscow and China, but worries about another blow struck by ex-CIA officer Snowden with a big accuracy on a fairly tarnished democratic reputation.

American mentors from the Department of State, who for decades have been teaching the "standards" of everyone and everything on the world stage, are about to lose the last vestiges of authority. The only thing that holds onto the precarious reputation of figures like Kerry or Obama is the propaganda in the spirit of the “cold war”, whose simple constructions have been hammered into the heads of the world community since the end of the Second World War. But even against it, a "trump card" was found - the declassification of the dark secrets of "democracy", showing where the true Empire of Evil is and what it is.

    Snowden, this is a very good reason for Russia to "answer" the United States to all these "Magnitsky lists", "slavery hysteria" and so on. Russia needs to play this "card" with maximum efficiency hi
    All these games are about how to bring the legal basis for issuing "from the evil one". Russia must clearly stand on the position: We are a democratic country, we stand on the principles of philanthropy and will not give up an honest citizen for reprisal. The United States is a totalitarian state, watching over honest citizens of its country and officials in other countries of the world !!! Let them justify themselves, otherwise they are used to blaming others

      The case of Snowden: a loophole in Russian laws saves a fugitive, allowing you to live at the airport as much as you like
      The United States has created such circumstances that the whistleblower of surveillance programs for citizens Edward Snowden, whose extradition they wish, can remain indefinitely in the transit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport. As attorney Vladislav Kocherin explained to Vedomosti, a transit visa is issued under Russian law for a period of no more than 10 days, but it can be extended if it is impossible to leave the country due to extraordinary circumstances. And such circumstances, according to the lawyer, the United States created by canceling Snowden's passport.

        And what did we need for this? Maybe we spent billions on some sort of "image improvement company"? Or maybe we bought murderers, hid the thieves, lied, killed, stole? Of course not. We only spoke the truth. Often it was not beneficial to us. She often imagined us as not shining angels at all. AND?
        The whole world looks and sees everything. Here is the disintegration of a long-term structure, wholly and completely based on base lies and deceit - the so-called "human rights". And now their inventors are vile, vile, visible to everyone to the last filthy line ... liars who have crushed themselves! After all, it was they who smeared themselves with tar, fell in feathers and are now running in full view ... The USSR basely lies and fell. Russia does not lie. Russia is eternal ...

      Reading news feeds about Mr. Snowden and the hysterical appeals of P.indostan to Russia about his extradition and extradition to his historical Motherland, I never get surprised at the naivety of these demands. The right word, they themselves behave like small children, and consider others to be morons. I would like to see at least somewhere, read at least one eye, how in “perestroika”, or new, “reloading” times P.indostan returned such personalities (professions and deeds) of the domestic “bottling” to Russia. Well, how is dear M.N. Zadorny with his famous quotes about these descendants of cowboys and hamburger eaters you will not remember ...

          Do not think so much, neither the Ukraine, nor Yugoslavia, nor Russia (USSR, 1990 model) the situation is not similar.

          People are busy with their work, they live well, there is work, everything else is the same.
          Specific princes on the ground (in the states) are also not observed.

          People do not flee from the country in search of a better life

A lot of people live there below the poverty line, unemployment is driving up to 15% (if not more), not everyone can afford medical insurance, there is no money for social insurance anymore. The listing of problems can continue ... And the children of Americans under the current policy of the authorities have long been gone.

    The forces of Russian diplomacy and special services need to help Snowden get away from the Americans while maximizing his personal benefit from him; besides, you need to make it clear to the world that if the facts of US criminal acts are disclosed, the hero can count on world help and support. That's just to grant him asylum in Russia, I think probably it’s not worth it then you have to declare that he acted on the instructions of our intelligence and the guy is not predictable that he can be recognized here! so it’s better to get him wherever he wants!

    Only thanks to heroes like Snowden, says Smith, did we learn about American electronic espionage.

    In the field of Internet technologies, I am a big layman, but my instinct suggests that we have all been, as they say, "under the hood" for a long time, both through the Internet and cellular communications, and through all sorts of chips and microcircuits built into documents, household and industrial equipment, with with the help of which you can not only "spy", but also control, for example, production processes, at the right time by sending the right signal to these "bugs". And I am amazed how you can use foreign microcircuits in the defense industry, or buy foreign military equipment and equipment for the needs of the defense industry?
    “Edward Snowden is a national hero, and a full and absolute clemency must be issued against him for all the crimes that he committed or could have committed regarding the declassification of data on the collection of information by the National Security Agency.”

    I absolutely agree with this statement! He's a PLANETARY HERO! First, that "we are being watched" - as if everyone knew about it, but it was impossible to prove, and now this fact, which with the help of Edward Snowden is confirmed, and does not require more proof; and secondly, he is a HERO purely humanly, he was not afraid to confront the whole huge "wasp nest", whose bloodhounds will now search for him all over the world. In his position, it would be best to undergo plastic surgery and "dissolve" in a friendly country.
    After all, this person did not graduate from universities: he only has a certificate of secondary education (school).

    Well what can I say, HEY yes BEAUTIFUL!

      As an IT specialist, I can reassure you - not everything is so scary. No resources will be enough to keep track of all, but if someone wants to spend money on such nonsense - a flag in their hands! The same people who are of interest for surveillance know and use countermeasures very well. Believe me, our specialists are far from naive people.

        As an expert in the field of security, I answer - why follow you suckers wise to follow ?! You have shared a huge amount of data about yourself. Tracking ... yes it's just funny! As soon as you need someone, all the data on the main characteristics are extracted from the network, from servers (from which not everyone works with the data somehow. Many simply store it), conveniently providing this data. After which a psycho-profile is compiled on you so complete that it is not difficult to find you at any given time. And also with great accuracy to predict where you will go, with whom and what you will talk about and what you will do. And it can be done with anyone. With you. With me. Who do you want with!
        So the Americans did it with the psychoprofile of Snowden and now they are tearing hair in a panic in a panic. And to someone who has done this with him before, when applying for service, for example, they will arrange for this attack the Negroes Gopnik with multiple rape before a fierce death. And no one needs to hire anyone in the gateway for this, no sweaty bucks to spit out ... they will do it themselves. Tracking ... and laughter and sin ...

    Something it seems to me that no one else will really see the Snowden pig. He now, as Lieutenant Kizhe, will flicker here and there, but really nowhere. He just arrived, but flew away. He was, but he left.
    It seems that Putin deliberately gave this story an ironic connotation in order to bring down the passions of the United States. There are few politicians who want to look like a pig hairdresser ...

    US Secretary of State John Kerry was disappointed that China could not detain Snowden. He believes that Beijing has decided to “deliberately ignore” the situation, not wanting to “live by the standards of the law.”

    Amer for what they fought, then ran into it!
    Of course, it is insulting to Kerry and Obama that they laugh in their faces and spit on them from a high bell tower! They probably wanted differently that everyone in the bow was waiting for the team, but here such a bummer.

    Snowden seems to become a virtual "Chegevar" and gives a good opportunity for our special services, on his behalf, to throw off such misinformation that it will be very difficult to refute it ... "Yankees" understand this! For Snowden, the Internet is like for "ROBIN GOOD" forest in SHERWOOD !!! Good luck to him !!! Vertically we are with a taboo !!! good

        Whoever leads will be thrown. Under Snowden, a bunch of journalists from British newspapers, it was his companion from WikiLeaks, wrote yesterday: "It's a shame, the FSB was not suitable, nobody is interested." In addition, immediately after this message, all common people, such as the HRC and human rights defenders, howled, like, "why?!? Why won't Russia go to confrontation with Wed Ameriga for Snowden? Are we weaker than Ecuador?!?"

        That is, the cheese is laid out, but the mouse does not climb into a mousetrap, neither Chinese nor Russian. And Snowden himself probably recalls the film "The Terminal" (2004) where his case is described.

    Do not think so much, neither the Ukraine, nor Yugoslavia, nor Russia (USSR, 1990 model) the situation is not similar.

    People are busy with their work, they live well, there is work, everything else is the same.
    Specific princes on the ground (in the states) are also not observed.

    People do not flee from the country in search of a better life

    So why do people need a revolution there? Break everything, lower your standard of living? Deprive children of the future?

    A future with such an external debt? And with food cards?

    Reading news feeds about Mr. Snowden and the hysterical appeals of P.indostan to Russia about his extradition and extradition to his historical Motherland, I never get surprised at the naivety of these demands. The right word, they themselves behave like small children, and consider others to be. I would like to see at least somewhere, at least read with one eye, how in “perestroika”, or new, “reloading” times P.indosta.n returned such personalities (professions and deeds) of the domestic “bottling” to Russia. Well, how is dear M.N. Zadorny with his famous quotes about these descendants of cowboys and hamburger eaters you will not remember ...

    How are we being bugged? Echelon, a global e-espionage system of the state, detects everything: “from the chatter of housewives to the president’s electronic signatures to launch strategic missiles.
    Virtually every person in the world who uses a telephone, fax or e-mail is controlled by Echelon.
    In fact, we are all in a global electronic concentration camp.
    "Echelon" is more than a hundred spy satellites, ground stations for tracking and eavesdropping. Up to 10 super-powerful computers "Cray", worth tens of millions of dollars each, are involved in data processing.
    All this is top secret, but their top secret was opened first by D. Assange, and now by E. Snowden.
    Now their little chest has been officially opened and hundreds of interested hackers are watching and saying: "What? Where? When?"

    As the "roof" of a civilian company, it makes spying more successful.
    CIA officials in Moscow must impersonate attache advisers and sit in the US embassy. But By the power of the Democrats in 1991, the "firm" Booz Fllen was given an office in Moscow at Bolshaya Dmitrovka, 7/5, building 1, entrance 3, office 28, with a staff of 50 employees, pumping out information.It is assumed that the company where Snowden worked performs in Russia tasks not only of the NSA and the CIA, but also of the Pentagon’s special unit, which is preparing for war in computer networks. Bears the name Joint Functional Component Command for Network Warfare. Designed to defend US computer networks and conduct offensive operations in relation to the information infrastructure of Russia.
    For Russia E. Snowden's arrival in Moscow is a welcome event receiving special information.

    At one time, screaming that we would not give the Kuril Islands to the Japanese, quietly separated Ukraine from Belarus. Now, under the cries of Snowden, the State Duma quietly at a rapid pace, in one week in three readings adopted the copyright law on the Russian Internet that is wildly disadvantageous for Americans and extremely disadvantageous for 99% of our citizens. No way it is not discussed in the media, everywhere this fool Snowden. Ay, what is our leadership patriots, ah, well done !!!

    Windows 8, Google+, Yandex: register, cloud storage, give the phone so that the password is not lost ...

    If before I always had a suspicion somewhere that Google, Gmail is a branch of the NSA - "please, take 10 (or more) Gigabytes of our storage for free and store all your e-mail and documentation there ..."
    Now, when I type something into Google - in fact - I realize that I am communicating directly with a "friend" ..
    If earlier - "hardware", for example, cool American Cisco routers, is cool, now - and it is clear to fools that this is a hole in the security system ... And we need to put domestic (.. in this area I'm working now ..)

        In hardware for the Internet and networks, these "friends" leave remote access (hardwired hardware bookmarks) possible. And through these "holes" they can already get to the contents of computers.

    Snowden was on the guest list: "He stayed here for four hours and he was even on the list of tenants." At the same time, the interlocutor of the agency said that, having rested at the hotel, Snowden left her, accompanied by several men.
