US whistleblower Snowden on flight to ‘third country’ via Moscow

A spokesperson from the Hong Kong government confirmed to press that Edward Snowden had "legally and voluntarily" left the country.

The only Aeroflot flight that arrives from Hong Kong into Moscow’s Sheremetevo airport today is at 17:05 local time (13:05 GMT).

There are reports that Moscow will not be Snowden’s final destination and that he may fly on to Ecuador or Iceland where he has allegedly applied for asylum. --

#2 But there's no question at all if Hong Kong simply follows the treaty and their law.

Be nice if the government here simply followed the law too.

#5 A senior U.S. law enforcement source said extradition "can, of course, be a lengthy legal process" but expressed optimism that Snowden would be sent back to the United States.

3.5 years sound about right ?
