I understand that the government does not find it “politically feasible” to give Edward Snowden Danish asylum (Read: we have to remain good friends with USA). It would be lovely indeed, if the social democrats instead showed democratic courage and action and made one exemption from the “politics of neccesity” (in my opinion: a fiction). Maybe we could even be proud of our country?

Here, Snowden is himself talking from a place in Russia. He explains himself with impressive subtlety and even has humor!
