Edward Snowden Wants France to Grant Him Asylum

Snowden wants to return to US if he is tried fairly

Snowden wants to return to US if he is tried fairly

Hours before Snowden's chat with MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on The 11th Hour is set to air, the show released a short teaser video showing the whistleblower - who copied and leaked highly classified information from the National Security Agency in 2013 when he was working as a CIA staffer - talking about the current US president. That is the ultimate goal. "But it's not about France, it's about Europe, it's about the world and the system that we have", Snowden said. "Not because we want to remember, but because we're no longer allowed to forget", Snowden said in a video announcing the book.

Again, I'm not asking for a parade. I'm not asking for a pardon. "What I'm asking for is a fair trial". We don't want people thrown in prison without the jury being able to decide that what they did was right or wrong.

The infamous whistleblower said that he didn't want to reside in Russian Federation but was trapped there when the United States canceled his passport while he was traveling to Latin America. "They want to use special procedures, they want to be able to close the courtroom, they want the public not to be able to go, know what's going on". "Of course it's problematic and of course I would like to return to the United States". They want the jury strictly to consider whether these actions were lawful or unlawful, not whether they were right or wrong. "And I'm sorry, but that defeats the objective of a jury trial".

India v Pakistan: Imran Khan issues nuclear warning - ‘Fight to the death’
The comments come weeks after a Pakistani minister had reportedly predicted a "full-blown war between Pakistan and India likely to occur in the month of October or November".

Edward Snowden says he wants a fair trial if he returns to U.S.

Snowden acknowledged that it wouldn't be hard to make the argument that he broke the law, but the government won't show how he harmed national security. Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA, revealed details of top-secret surveillance conducted by the United States' National Security Agency regarding telecom data. Later stories, including those in The Washington Post, disclosed other snooping and how US and British spy agencies had tapped into information from cables carrying the world's phone and Internet traffic.
