EXCERPTS FROM REPORT:

Michael McFaul, the US ambassador to Russia,has contacted the New Yorker to deny previous reports that he had sought to convey a message to Snowden that Snowden is not a ‘whistleblower.’ 

McFaul’s account directly contradicts a description of the Snowden meeting published by Wikileaks:

 ‘The Human Rights Watch representative used this opportunity to tell Mr Snowden that on her way to the airport she had received a call from the US Ambassador to Russia, who asked her to relay to Mr Snowden that the US Government does not categorise Mr Snowden as a whistleblower and that he has broken United States law. This further proves the United States Government’s persecution of Mr Snowden and therefore that his right to seek and accept asylum should be upheld.’

    • He is more than a thinker…He is a prisoner of conscience…And for that there is no law upon the face of the Earth, or allegiance supreme to his duty to his own freedom from the guilty enterprise of others!
