Ecuador, the bastion of civil rights?

don't make me laugh!
In 2012 the State shut down 20 private media outlets, the Government is corrupt, and it's human rights record is disgusting.
It only takes a few minutes research to learn that Ecuador does not treat people who speak out against the regime very well.
Edward Snowdon, had he been a true enemy of the US, would never have been able to leave the country.
Do you think Sybil Edmonds or Bradly Manning would have been able to cross the boarder and evade the "authorities"....twice...three times?
It is time to stop the hero worship of Snowdon, recognize him for the shill he is,and get on with reclaiming America for her true and loyal citizens...not Government patsies.
