Senators Blast Putin Over Snowden

Senators lashed out Thursday in response to news that Russian President Vladimir Putin was granting temporary asylum to Edward Snowden.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Snowden has blood on his hands, but he declined to offer intelligence to explain that comment in an interview with CNN set to air later today.

Asked by Wolf Blitzer what he would say to Snowden if they met face to face, Graham replied: “You’ve gotten some people killed probably, no matter what your motives were. The results of your conduct has put some very brave people at risk. You’ve compromised our nation at a time when radical Islam is on the move. We need to find out what these guys are up to.”

Separately, New York Democratic Sen. Charles E. Schumer called on President Barack Obama to push to relocate the upcoming G-20 summit.

“When Mr. Putin first allowed Mr. Snowden to enter Russia and remain at the airport, it was a clear poke in the eye of the United States. By allowing him to leave the airport, and remain in Russia, he has taken the situation a step further and put our relationship with Russia in even greater danger,” Schumer said.

Graham and Schumer previously introduced a resolution encouraging moving the G-20 meeting.

“Russia has stabbed us in the back,” Schumer said, appearing before cameras in the Capitol.

Schumer and Graham aren’t alone. Sen. Bill Nelson was one of several senators issuing statements on the issue.

“Putin is thumbing his nose at the U.S. and there is a price to pay for that,” the Florida Democrat said.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the administration was “extremely disappointed” by the Russian action, and said the administration was re-evaluating a possible summit in Moscow. But he demurred repeatedly on whether the decision would have any material effect on the relationship between the two countries.

    This veteran journalist swiftly coming to the conclusion that Putin is in on what appears to be a distraction psyop with Snowden as its lead actor — a covert effort by a coalition of military, secret service and intelligence agents the world over to keep mainstream media from exposing the raison d’etre for deep spying on civilian populations: a systematic slow-kill electromagnetic genocide of extralegally targeted “dissidents” and “undesirables” via a celltower/satellite radio frequency directed energy weapon grid that is silently assaulting, impairing, subjugating and harming “targeted individuals” and their families. This journalist is one of the victims of the American branch of a covert international Fourth Reich — and there’s evidence that both President Obama and Vice President Biden have come under stealth electromagnetic weapon attack (the “Obama debate trance,” Biden’s public bouts of forced sleep): viclivingston.blogspot.com/2011/12/u.html

    If the Senate had an ounce of shame they would all publicly disembowel themselves on CSPAN for their worthless behavior. 2014 people, your last chance to rout these buffoons out.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    I wish to show appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of condition. As a result of surfing around throughout the world-wide-web and meeting tips that were not beneficial, I was thinking my entire life was done. Existing devoid of the solutions to the problems you have solved as a result of the posting is a serious case, and ones which might have in a negative way affected my career if I had not encountered your blog post. Your own skills and kindness in dealing with all the things was useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a step like this. It’s possible to now relish my future. Thanks very much for this professional and amazing help. I won’t think twice to suggest your blog post to any individual who will need recommendations on this topic.
