TEAM AMERICA: Suspicion of smuggled Snowden grounds Bolivian presidential jet in Austria

21st Century Wire says…

TEAM AMERICA: World Police, fighting for freedom…

Global dominion over all borders? Indeed, it appears that Washington DC has that power now.

Remember that great puppet show parody film?

TEAM AMERICA
That piece of comedy became reality yesterday when the Presidential plane of Bolivian leader Evo Morales was grounded in Austria on the orders of Washington DC, because it was suspected that ex-CIA analyst-cum-NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was being smuggled on board out of Russia.

But in this instance, TEAM AMERICA can only succeed with the full cooperation of its European cohorts.

If there is a global government in the works, then that new government would need the barriers of borders and national laws to be broken down so as to enable international dragnets, and border-less, total jurisdiction by a global police force. This latest event indicates that this threshold has already been passed. Their message is clear: that there is no safe haven on this planet for whistleblowers.

This reckless move by the Obama White House has already triggered an international reaction throughout South America:

“Everyone has gone insane. The head of state and his plane have total immunity. This level of impunity is unprecedented,”
 tweeted Argentine President Cristina Kirchner.

Ecuador suggested an emergency meeting of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) after the incident Tuesday.

Washington DC spin doctors are probably still unaware that their latest gaff will actually give President Morales a huge injection of support internationally.

The question remains – where is Ed Snowden and where is he heading? We are told that he is still residing in Moscow International’s transit area, although no one in the international media has been able to visually ID him yet.

What we do know is that his PR is being handled by Iceland-based Wikileaks, and his father Lonnie Snowden has retained Neocon and AIPAC-linked lawyer Bruce Fein in a bid to negotiate his return to the US.

So far, Snowden’s asylum results are thus far as follows: 1 withdrawn, 9 denied, and 11 others pending.

The world waits with bated breath…

After departing from Russia the plane of Bolivian President Evo Morales was forced to landing in Austria Wednesday morning over suspicions that Edward Snowden was on board. The South American leaders have expressed their outrage over the event.

Snowden had requested asylum from Bolivia, which has yet to answer; he also petitioned Austria but was rejected. Reports indicated the plane was hindered in navigating Western Europe as France and Portugal would not allow the La Paz-bound plane to enter their airspace.

David Choquehuanca, the Bolivian Foreign Minister, refuted the idea Snowden was on the plane, saying “we don’t know who invited this lie, but we want to denounce to the international community this injustice with the plane of President Evo Morales.”

“I am not going to allow them to search my plane. I am not a thief,” tweeted Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, citing the Bolivian President Morales with whom she has spoken on the phone.

This is a lie, a falsehood. It was generated by the US government,” Bolivian Defense Minister Ruben Saavedra told CNN. “It t is an outrage. It is an abuse. It is a violation of the conventions and agreements of international air transportation.”

‘Kidnapped by imperialism’

Spanish authorities requested permission to search President Morales’ plane as a condition of transiting through the country, but Bolivian officials refused.

“The Spanish ambassador has told us that his country hasn’t yet allowed the flight over its territory,”Defense Ministry head Ruben Saavedra pointed out.

As for the demand to search the plane, he stressed, “This is blackmail, we are refusing these conditions.”

The Bolivian vice president, Alvaro Garcia, said Morales had been “kidnapped by imperialiam.”

The president, meanwhile, indicated that some Latin American leaders have already contacted him, expressing their support.

“Maduro has called, he is concerned and looking for a legal means to put an end to this detention, hijack, I don’t know what you would call it legally.”

Austrian ministry officials have confirmed that Snowden was not on Morales’ plane, according to AFP.

“President Morales will leave early Wednesday morning for La Paz,” Austrian ministry spokesman Alexander Schallenberg said. He denied any knowledge of why the plane landed there…
