  • An Open Letter to the Media on the 'Irony' of Snowden's Request for Asylum in Venezuela and Ecuador by Latin America Experts

    The supposed “irony” of whistle-blower Edward Snowden seeking asylum in countries such as Ecuador and Venezuela has become a media meme. Numerous articles, op-eds, reports and editorials in outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, and MSNBC have hammered on this idea since the news first broke that Snowden was seeking asylum in Ecuador. It was a predictable retread of the same meme last year when Julian Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London and the Ecuadorian government deliberated his asylum request for months.

    Since the Corrective Operation to Unseat the President (COUP) in Egypt, one name has been on everyone’s lips, General Abdul-Fattah al-Sisi the leader of the Glorious Egyptian Army©. It’s true a few were cursing him, but most honourable citizens of Egypt and the other Arab countries were behind the General’s historical corrective manoeuvre against the Muslim Brotherhood. General al-Sisi embodies the values of Arab liberalism: manliness, strength, striking with a hand of steel and, above all, a musical name that rhymes. In his attempt to reach out to Arab liberals, the General in his wisdom decided to grant us this exclusive interview as one of the leading publications for Liberal Communist Secularist Arabs. We are very grateful to the Beacon of Arab Secularism for this.
