Bravo! To the nation who also took in the great Bobby Fischer..

...while the U.S. was chasing him all over the earth for playing chess in Yugoslavia! It was the 20-year reunion of his 1972 match against the Russian Boris Spassky.

Bobby took out the State Dept order informing him not to play (because the U.S. was sanctioning Yugolslavia at that time).

He spit on it, crumpled it up and tossed it on the floor.

And my boyhood hero became even a bigger hero.

Iceland finally took him in after Fischer ran from the U.S. government thugs for 15 years, but he died within a couple years of arriving.

So instead of honoring the first-ever American World Chess champion, the government treated him like a criminal.

Now they're doing the same to Snowden - instead of treating him like the patriot he is.
