WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says it is "not buying" that the decision by Hong Kong authorities to let admitted leaker Edward Snowden leave for Russia was a technical decision. It says it was a deliberate choice to release a fugitive and that "unquestionably" damages U.S.-China relations.

White House spokesman Jay Carney says the U.S. assumes that Snowden is now in Russia and that the White House now expects Russian authorities to look at all the options available to them to expel Snowden to face charges in the U.S. for releasing secret surveillance information.

There some people out there still believe that the US is the good guys. A nation that is becoming a police state. If you think the government is still honest and above board ask them why Desert Storm veterans over 300k and counting are sick. Then when they are done lying ask some the veterans that want jury trials to prove the government propaganda machine is lying are not allowed them. All citizens are supposed be able to request jury trial to ensure are government is honest but veterans are not. Government cheats veterans, allows diplomats to be killed, allows sailors to be ambushed by so called allies and more. Look up Project SHAD, look up USS Libery incident (situation where a President was more than willing to let his troops die rather than embarss an ally attacking them), look up Gulf War illness and the lies by the government about the actual number sick. Ask yourself what if you were veteran and needed jury trial would you like not having one? Ask yourself about other lies the government has done in the past including beaking treaties with North American Indians, lying to an Iraq dictator about what they would do if he attacked Kuwaiti. Maybe you like that the intel community told you Iraq had no WMD's worth going to war over. Maybe you like Obama saying he's not after you guns then going after them. Maybe you like people taking oath to defend all aspects of the Constitution then taking steps to turn this country into a police state where the common citizen has no rights. We shouldn't be worried about China as much as own leaders lying and cheating the people and taking their freedoms away. That is the bigger threat to American citizens.
