How is he going to get his GF to come live with him?
Perhaps he will now find a beautiful Russian female to be his companion.

Edward Snowden The Traitor has sat in a Moscow airport since June 23, 2013. Today is July 19, 2013.

In the time that he has sat in the airport, he could of worked on the application, so that it appears, neat and sincere.

Th e bond paper cover sheet is a slanted scrawl of sloppy penmanship. Any drunk at a bar in the United States writing on a bar napkin could author a neater request.

Hi s insincere sloppiness shows he has no more respect for Russia and the people than he does for the United States and Americans.

If the FMS rejects the application is he returned to Hong Kong ?
