Russia has granted asylum to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden for one year. Ironically, Russia is a strange bedfellow for Snowden. Indeed, if a Russian did the same thing to Russia that Snowden did to the US, they would probably be dead by now. But Russia has managed to make the US look like a bully who is throwing a hissy fit because they didn’t get their way.
UPDATE: Time magazine puts together some Russian sights for Snowden to visit, in an article dripping with sarcasm and irony.
