Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, had welcomed activist/whistleblower/traitor/hero Edward Snowden into Russia some time ago.

Snowden asked for asylum and Putin responded with “not if you continue to release documents that hurt the US” and Snowden withdrew his request.

Now it appears Snowden has rethought things and asked again for Russian asylum and Putin is dragging his feet.

Does the threat of damaging US/Russia relations really loom that large in the man’s mind? Is he really worried about his loss of face because Obama is arriving there next week?

Or does this really have more to do with the aliens he’s already granted asylum to… you know those ones from outer space that he mentioned last fall.

Could the aliens be directing his turnaround?

Is this a stupid idea or what?

(but I thought I’d see if it had legs)
