Bolivian President Evo Morales’ Plane Rerouted to Austria Over Fears Edward Snowden Aboard
BREAKING NEWS: Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane was rerouted to Austria on suspicion NSA leaker Edward Snowden was onboard.
David Choquehuanca has denied that Snowden was on the plane, saying “we don’t know who invented this lie, but we want to denounce to the international community this injustice with the plane of President Evo Morales.”

Wikileaks also tweeted that Spain blocked President Evo Morales’ plane from entering its airspace. Did anyone really think most of the European countries don’t stand with America? This isn’t a game. Edward Snowden leaked classified documents about an EU counterpart — the United Kingdom.
According to reports, France, Spain and Portugal all banned Evo Morales jet from their airspace. Austria, not. NATO-wide anti-Snowden alert?
