Edward Snowden Tells South China Morning Post He Chose Hong Kong to Expose Criminality

edward (1)BREAKING:  NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who fled to Hong Kong after disclosing classified information to the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, is still talking. This time he spoke to South China Morning Post.

“People who think I made a mistake in picking HK as a location misunderstand my intentions. I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality,” said Snowden told the Post earlier today.

He vowed to fight any extradition attempt by the US government, saying: “My intention is to ask the courts and people of Hong Kong to decide my fate. I have been given no reason to doubt your system.’’

It is believed the US is pursuing a criminal investigation, but no extradition request has yet been filed. Hong Kong has an extradition treaty with the US, although analysts say any attempts to bring Mr Snowden to America may take months and could be blocked by Beijing. Source: South China Morning Post

The newspaper said watch for full story coming shortly. It seems to me like Edward Snowden is taking a victory lap after committing a serious crime.
