Dick Cheney Says Edward Snowden Is Chinese Spy. China Laughs Out Loud

Dick Cheney

Dick Cheney, former vice president, bad quail hunter, to Fox News:

“I’m suspicious because he went to China. That’s not a place where you would ordinarily want to go if you are interested in freedom, liberty, and so forth…. It raises questions whether or not he had that kind of connection before he did this.”

China’s response:


After a brief pause, in which sharp breaths were drawn:



“It is sheer nonsense,” said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying when asked to comment on the allegation put forward by former US vice-president Dick Cheney and other US politicians.

“American politicians are idiots,” she then added under her breath.

Meanwhile, Edward Snowden seems very distraught:

Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American, and the more panicked talk we hear from people like him, Feinstein, and King, the better off we all are. If they had taught a class on how to be the kind of citizen Dick Cheney worries about, I would have finished high school.

      Dick is an idiot for sure but doesnt anyone else find it funny that someone interested in freedom and what not would come running into the hands of China? I do think that is very fishy.

        China is the safest place on the planet if your a known person.
        Why do you think so many ex British politician are roaming around with not a care in the world, never looking over their backs-living it up.
        China now as more freedom then the US and UK, fact.

      As Hong Kongese people are fond of reminding us, Hong Kong isn’t exactly ‘China’ proper. It’s the same thing in name, not in actual practice. So being in HK doesn’t actually denotes being in cohoots with the CPC. It would be like saying the primary language of the States is Spanish because I went to Puerto Rico and that’s what they speak.

      If Snowden was a spy they’d just arrange for him to have him disappear during a vacation in Beijing and no one would bat an eyelash. If anything Beijing is probably pissed off that this will be a major hit to PR. If I were Beijing PR I would forbid anyone from talking about this and pretend it’s not happening and see if the Icelandics could take him. Like seriously, who wants to deal with the CIA complaining you have their man?
