Hackers around the world have been searching for a home for their wayward comrade, Edward Snowden. Finally, it seems, they have settled on North Korea.

SEOUL, Republic of Korea – In response to a formal application for asylum on behalf of Edward Snowden, Kim Jong-un issued a statement offering the whistleblower not just asylum, but full North Korean citizenship. Snowden and his entourage, staffed mostly by WikiLeaks employees, were ecstatic at the news of a safe haven after 14 other countries had denied their applications.

“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea promises to allow Edward Snowden to continue to leak anything he wants. We will provide him with many of the best top-secret hacking tools available in North Korea,” said a representative from the North Korean military.

“We are just so relieved that Snowden has finally found friendly shores,” said Glen Greenwild, the reporter who famously interviewed Edward Snowden in a Hong Kong hotel.

Snowden issued a statement written in Spanish, thanking North Korea for their commitment to freedom.

    OMG!!!! and you think that we are the only country that has spy’s???? Snowden made the big mistake of betraying his country by opening his mouth and disregarding a oath. STUPID…. He is not a hero in my eyes …only a traitor. Other countries have Spy’s and if anyone believes they don’t…they are fools. Sure we are having to give up some freedoms…But, since 9/11/2001 EVERYTHING changed and we no longer in our Country live in the World we were so use to. Sad. So, we have to go deeper and weed out the bad people who have no regard for life…and you better believe I will give up my right to privacy for that. Proud to be an American!!!

      I’m glad Snowden had the balls to expose the administration’s dirty, secret tactics. If there’s nothing to hide why keep it hidden secrets from the American taxpayers? I’m only sorry that the so called “whistle protection” does not cover him and that he had to leave a country that he loves and protects. Obama’s administration lacks the transparency it promised.
