He seems to have fucked over Edward Snowden right royally:
The plan to spirit the surveillance whistleblower Edward Snowden to sanctuary in Latin America appeared to be unravelling on Friday, amid tension between Ecuador\’s government and Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks.
President Rafael Correa halted an effort to help Snowden leave Russia amid concern Assange was usurping the role of the Ecuadoran government, according to leaked diplomatic correspondence published on Friday.
Amid signs Quito was cooling with Snowden and irritated with Assange, Correa declared invalid a temporary travel document which could have helped extract Snowden from his reported location in Moscow.
Correa declared that the safe conduct pass issued by Ecuador\’s London consul – in collaboration with Assange – was unauthorised, after other Ecuadorean diplomats privately said the WikiLeaks founder could be perceived as \”running the show\”.
This is after Wikileaks \”escorted\” Snowden out of Hojng Kong. Leaving him in the transit area of an airport in Moscow. Now entirely without documents valid for travel anywere. His US passport withdrawn.
Thanks Julian, you\’re a real mate.
