Obama's "secret" arrest order for Snowden

"There is no distinctly American criminal
class - except Congress."
- Mark Twain

Snowden Charged by Feds for telling the Truth . . . Complaint is then sealed so the People cannot read it.

Police State  -  The Washington Post reports Federal prosecutors have filed a sealed criminal complaint against Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked a trove of documents about top-secret surveillance programs.  The Obama Justice Department has asked Hong Kong to detain him on a provisional arrest warrant, according to U.S. officials.

Snowden was charged with espionage, theft and conversion of government property, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the case.

The complaint was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia, a jurisdiction where Snowden’s former employer, Booz Allen Hamilton, is headquartered and a district with a long track record of prosecuting cases with national security implications.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment.

The documents, some of which have been published in The Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper, detailed some of the most-secret surveillance operations undertaken by the United States and theUnited Kingdom, as well as classified legal memos and court orders underpinning the programs in the United States.

The leaks have sparked national and international debates about the secret powers of the NSA to infringe on the privacy of Americans and foreigners.

Snowden could also remain in Hong Kong if the Chinese government decides that it is not in the defense or foreign policy interests of the government in Beijing to have him sent back to the United States for trial.

Snowden could also apply for asylum in Hong Kong or attempt to reach another jurisdiction and seek asylum there before the authorities in Hong Kong act.

The Feds want Snowden in jail for daring to tell the truth, while Congress and the
President rape the Bill of Rights on live TV and get away with it.
