Bolivian President's Plane Diverted Amid Rumors it Carried Snowden

By Rick Gladstone, William Neuman, Melissa Eddy, The New York Times

03 July 13



It began as a seemingly offhand remark by the president of Bolivia, who suggested during a visit to Moscow that he might be happy to host Edward J. Snowden, the fugitive former security contractor who is desperate to find asylum. It escalated into a major diplomatic scramble in which the Bolivian president’s plane was rerouted to Austria, apparently because of suspicions that Mr. Snowden was aboard.

Outraged Bolivian officials, insisting that Mr. Snowden was not on the plane, accused France, Portugal and Spain on Tuesday of acting under American pressure to rescind permission for President Evo Morales’s plane to traverse their airspace on the way back to Bolivia. Low on fuel, the plane’s crew won permission to land in Vienna.

After the plane spent 13 hours overnight on the tarmac at the Vienna airport, it took off at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, according to Peter Kleemann, a spokesman for the airport. Austrian media reported the plane was bound for Bolivia, but that a stopover was planned in the Canary Islands.

France, Portugal and Spain on Tuesday - acting under American pressure hijacked Bolivian plane ...
Snowden affair is uncovering the "real" USA/NATO democracy.

Now we're "hijacking" diplomatic personal?
When will we do the same for financial criminals?

America wont, those 'financial criminals' are the owner / operators of the american government.

America was apparently bought and paid for a long time ago.

As expected for a long time, Obama has become a liability internationally for amerika, and domestically he's a nightmare for The People of America. The international community knows more everyday about his imperial disregard for all laws, and that this country is dangerous and can no longer be trusted. In other words, Obama is screwing up big time and continues to do so, daily now it seems. He (and my country) is rapidly losing credibility worldwide. Folks listen but laugh behind his back in derision. Speaking for myself here, Obama is no good - every bit the cruel torturer and terrorist as dubya, dick, rice, rove, Rumsfeld, Boehner, McConnell ... Almost no one is worthy of respect in the congress and administration. Obama is isolating this country from every other one. He's already isolated himself from us The People.

‘Imperial Skyjacking’: Bolivian presidential plane grounded in Austria over Snowden stowaway suspicions
===========================
so much for the rule of laws, international respect, and civil liberties while the U.S engages in spy rings with the NSA, The Post Office, and Drone Launches across borders and cities. ah, love thy neighbor or spy on them , maybe shoot them down soon...too? Its interesting to note that European Nations are denying Snowden's request for asylum, while Latin American Nations have given notice of Asylum to Snowden while being trapped in Russia and the rest of the European Union Cowardly deny Snowden Justice in the name of American Democracy and people, peace, and civil rights. Is the European Union with democracy, peace, civil rights or are they puppets?

American love of 'freedom, human rights, respect for international law......what hypocrites!

============================

Spain has authorized Bolivia’s presidential jet to pass through its airspace and continue its journey to Bolivia, the Austrian President has said. The plane was grounded in Austria Wednesday morning over suspicions that Edward Snowden was on board.

The Bolivian presidential jet has left Vienna and is on its way to La Paz, AFP reports.

Morales' jet was forced into landing in Vienna on Wednesday after several EU countries barred the plane from entering their airspace over suspicions that whistleblower Edward Snowden was potentially aboard.

Austrian authorities searched Morales’ plane for Edward Snowden, but found no stowaways on board, Austria’s deputy chancellor has said. The plane will now carry on its journey to the Canary Islands where it will refuel before flying to La Paz.

Snowden had requested asylum from Bolivia, which has yet to answer his request. The fugitive whistleblower has 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 invented this lie, but we want to denounce to the international community this injustice with the plane of President Evo Morales.”

'Kidnapped by imperialism'

The grounding of Morales’ plane triggered a torrent of enraged rhetoric from Latin American leaders amid accusations the craft had been “kidnapped by imperialism.”

Morales told press at the airport that he was not a “criminal” and reminded EU countries that “we are no longer in the colonial period.” Moreover, he called on the countries that had closed their airspace to him to account for themselves.

“The governments of France, Spain and Portugal must explain to the world the reasons behind this delay,” said Morales, adding that these actions were indicative of the “repressive policies” of some EU countries. Morales mocked the fact some governments believed Snowden could be on board, saying “this young man isn’t a suitcase that I can take with me to Bolivia.”

Several Latin American leaders rallied behind Bolivia denouncing the detention of Morales’ plane. President of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner, decried the situation as “madness” on her Twitter account “The head of state and his plane have total immunity. This level of impunity is unprecedented,” tweeted Kirchner.

Cuba also condemned Morales’ detention as an “unacceptable and unjustifiable act that offends Latin America and the Caribbean.”

Meanwhile, Rafael Correa, the Ecuadorian president, has called on other South American leaders to “take action.”

“Decisive hours for UNASUR (Union of South American Nations)! Either we graduated from the colonies, or we claim our independence, sovereignty and dignity. We are all Bolivia!” Correa proclaimed via Twitter.

Ecuador suggested an emergency meeting of the UNASUR after the incident Tuesday.

The rare instance of two countries denying airspace to the leader of a non-adversarial country is indicative of Snowden’s current situation. Morales previously told RT that Bolivia would consider granting Snowden asylum if he were to make such a request.

"It is possible that they want to intimidate us due to the statement made by President Morales that we would analyze an asylum request from Mr. Snowden," said Defense Minister Ruben Saavedra.

"We have the suspicion that [France and Portugal] were used by a foreign power, in this case the United States, as a way of intimidating the Bolivian state and President Evo Morales." Saavedra confirmed that Italy had also denied Bolivia’s aircraft entry into its airspace.

According to the Associated Press, Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca has rejected any claims that the plane carrying the Bolivian head of state was denied entry over France and Portugal for anything other than political reasons.

"They say it was due to technical issues, but after getting explanations from some authorities we found that there appeared to be some unfounded suspicions that Mr. Snowden was on the plane ... We don't know who invented this lie," said Choquehuanca.

Meanwhile, the number of countries that would agree to provide asylum to Snowden continues to decrease by the day.

Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro, speaking with RT, said he would leave the decision up to the Venezuelan people.

“If Snowden stays alone, he will be destroyed,” he said. “But what kind of crimes did he commit? What kind of bombs did he explode or what kind of missiles did he launch? He tries to fight against controlling weak countries. This is why we say that we share what this young man says and that protecting Snowden will protect peace."
