The latest (alleged) twist in the Snowden saga strains belief.
Apparently, rumors circulated that Evo Morales would be carrying Edward Snowden in his Presidential plane following Evo’s trip to Moscow. According to the Bolivian government, the governments of France and Portugal, spurred on by the US government, refused to allow the presidential plane permission to fly over their respective territories. Morales’ plane had to stop in Vienna to refuel, and they are now calculating the best way to get home.
The weird thing is that these folks are mad at Portugal and France, two countries that welcomed Nicolás Maduro a few weeks ago with open arms. Let’s not forget that the government of Portugal is going to (insert laugh track here) build a new highway to La Guaira!
So, what now? Is this going to be the excuse as to why the highway will never get made? I’d love to see the government try to sell that line to the beleaguered Vargas commuters who must withstand hours of traffic each way, every day. “We were going to make a new highway, see, but then this thing with Evo Morales’ plane happened, and … do you know what Wikileaks is?”
