Bolivia Offers Snowden Asylum

Bolivia has joined a growing number of South American countries offering asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

Bolivian President Evo Morales said Saturday that Snowden is welcome in his country. He did not say whether he had received a formal petition from the 30-year-old.

The decision comes after Morales' plane was abruptly rerouted to Vienna last week after being denied permission to fly over France on suspicion Snowden was on board. Morales said he is making the asylum offer as a protest against the U.S. and European nations he blames for the incident.

    Probably beats the Venezuela option. I just hope Snowden finds a way to get out of that airport without getting nabbed.

    Yep. Finding a flight plan to get him to South America will be the problem.
