(Newser) – Call in for tech support in Russia and you might just get Edward Snowden on the line. Yes, the NSA leaker has gotten a job doing technical support for what his lawyer says is a "major Russian website," the AP reports, citing RIA Novosti. He won't name the company, but whatever it is, presumably it doesn't check references or have a lot of leakable secrets. On that note, click for Snowden's latest shocking leak.

Snowden is a scape goat for the Wash DC BS artists, and he is far from a traitor. Bush and Chaney lied to us to go to war so their arms buddies could make a shit load of money. Why aren't they labeled traitors? As far as I'm concerned, Snowden did us a favor.

The weirdest things can happen in this case. After Lee Harvey Oswald defected to the U.S.S.R., he sat down with KGB agents and told them all he knew about the Marines and the radar system he was trained to operate. The KGB agent looked at him and said, "You know so little about the American radar network, you waste our time." So they let him have a 1-year visa to visit family members and he went to Minsk to meet up with Marina. He got upset that the USSR did not give him a hero's treatment so he loaded up the family and they returned to NYC where he landed and demanded to talk to the FBI. He then told the FBI he was tired of Russia and wanted to defect back to the U.S.A. Since we were going through so many problems with Russia at the time, they let Lee have a permanent resident visa so he could move to Texas and reestablish his life. How weird was that? It was not time that he had tried to assassinate General Edwin Walker and then successfully kack JFK. Right now, Snowden is getting special indoctrination from Russia for his eventual return to the USA. I believe they will try to sneak him back under an assumed name. He will then spend the rest of his life hiding out but gathering what Russia wants from him.
