U.S. surveillance program whistleblower Edward Snowden has fled to Hong Kong with classified information from the NSA office, but now Hong Kong politicians are saying that it is best that Snowden leaves.
Surveillance program “Prism” whistleblower Edward Snowden fled to Hong Kong with top-secret information from the NSA office, thinking that he could hide from the Obama Administration.
The Guardian reporter, Ewen MacAskill, said that Snowden realizes that he will likely never return to the U.S. as a free man. Snowden’s best options may be to seek asylum in places like Iceland.
Hong Kong legislator Regina Ip said that Snowden should leave Hong Kong, since the Hong Kong government has extradition agreements with the U.S..
