Snowden should return to the United States
Neither can the two countries that have helped him so far China and Russia be described as U.S. friends. Hes a high school dropout who earned a GED. With his limited formal education, but must be other-worldly computer skills, he reportedly earned more than $200,000 a year as a Booz Allen Hamilton contractor with the NSA. This of course is not an area for which I feel sorry for him, but I have to admit to wondering how the heck someone with so little education who sits behind a desk tapping on computer keys can earn so much money. But then again, I dont know what Snowden did with the NSA so I must suppress my nature to want to conclude his worth.

Beware of Passport Fraud
If they wish to travel to Arab countries that don’t recognize Israel, they usually apply for a temporary Jordanian passport. Some Palestinians simply use a Jordanian passport for all of their travel. Qasam Hamayel, a 25-year-old government employee with a Palestinian passport, tried to obtain a visa to go to Holland three years ago, but failed. He said he had all the documents that officials there requested. “After I was invited by the Dutch government I was asked to present documents to prove that I was a student. I had a bank account, health insurance, and a return ticket but after a month they denied my application.” A letter justified the visa rejection on the basis that Hamayel didn’t provide proof that he would return to the Palestinian territories. “They said that the Palestinians were recognized as an Authority, but not as a country so they couldn’t deport me back if I stayed there illegally,” he added. Only two months ago, Hamayels friend Ahmed Omar was also denied a visa to Holland, which means that the new Palestinian state status has so far not translated into fewer limitations on Palestinian movement.
