Friday Afternoon Cigar

We smoked another Nub Connecticut as we pondered today's news. 

Apparently, our Attorney General has written a letter to the Soviets Russians promising not to execute or torture NSA whistle-blower Snowden if they return him to the US. 

It has been about two to two and a half months since Snowden blew his whistle. 

Should we assume it takes negotiations that long before the US will put such a promise in writing?  And from what position did the US start negotiating? 

One can only imagine Snowden experiencing the same fate as Soviet defector Walter Krivitsky, whose body was found with three suicide letters.
