President Obama demand that Egypt set Islamist leader Mohamed Morsi free. But Edvard Snowden must be imprisoned.
White House spokesman Jay Carney has has the following message to the free world.
” Providing a propaganda platform for Mr. Snowden runs counter to the Russian government’s previous declarations of Russia’s neutrality and that they have no control over his presence in the airport.”
He added, in a bit of headline-friendly and well-calibrated outrage,
“We would urge the Russian government to afford human rights organizations the ability to do their work in Russia throughout Russia. Not just at the Moscow transit lounge.”
Edward Snowden is still in a transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport.
In the two weeks since Snowden arrived in Moscow from Hong Kong, U.S. officials had publicly urged Russia to return him but largely declined to criticize the country as harshly as they have during past disagreements.
Snowden, after all, had been conspicuously quiet in Moscow and apparently unable to communicate even with his own father.

Surely Edvard Snowden is not the Messiah. But I can still see a Biblical parallel to the demands of Barack Hussein Obama.
Suppose there was a favor in the pipeline. The Global leaders were going to give in to public demands, and set free a prisoner.
If you would have to chose between one of them:
Would you like Mohamed Morsi or rather Edward Snowden to be set free?
For Obama the choice seems to be simple. The hard core criminal, and former President of Egypt, was first released from prison in a jailbreak staged by Hamas.
The jailbreak took place when President Hosni Mubarak was ousted.
For this crime, the Military rulers in Cairo want to put the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood on trial.
Nope, says Obama. This is my man.
The message from the White House is not to be misunderstood “Barabbas, Barabbas, set him free”.
So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, ‘Which one do you want me to release to you: Jesus Barabbas, or Jesus who is called the Messiah?’
Vladimir Putin seems to have got the job of Pontus Pilate. He can simply not find any reason why Edward Snowden should be persecuted, and face possible execution in the USA.
Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
What an interesting situation. Obama represent the mob, and Putin the men who try their best to reflect, and see that some kind of justice is done.
The World is surely turned up side down. The former KGB colonel is now a defender of the human rights of an American citizen. And Obama wants to help the Islamic criminals back into the Government offices in Egypt.
