"A staunch critic of the U.S., Correa rebuked the Obama administration for hypocrisy, invoking the case of brothers Roberto and William Isaias, bankers whose extradition from the U.S..."... US blocked extradition of "bankers" that robbed billions from Ecuador and bankrolled not-noce-people?... And the US wants Ecuador to extradite a clerk who exposed barely-legal-if-legal-at-all lists, no questions asked?...

Yeah, the U.S. has no moral leg to stand on with this thing--they can't even admit that their spying is WRONG--yet they want a SOVEREIGN nation, in a region that's suffered through one U.S.-supported oppressive regime after another, to do "as its told." Whatever. It's really quite absurd that the U.S. government doesn't realize that its star has faded and the emerging world couldn't care less about its "concerns." A desperate, has-been nation.

A once free country now has people fleeing it due to persecution from a small group of political criminals. How embarrassing.

This is exactly what Snowden wants. He wants continued publicity. Other than leaking information about spying all of which we had known for decades, what top secret information has been leaked? Time to ignore Snowden and he will fade away.

smeltrun, it has always been a dog-eat-dog world. It is only authoritarian governments that view their own citizens as the enemy.
