The U.K. Will Not Be Harboring Edward Snowden

It’s unclear where NSA leaker Edward Snowden is at the moment, but the U.K. wants to make it clear that he isn’t welcome there. The British government sent a travel alert to airlines around the world warning them not to let him fly to the country because “the individual is highly likely to be refused entry to the UK.” A British diplomat tells the Associated Press that Snowden has probably been deemed detrimental to the “public good,” and any airline that does fly him to the U.K. is likely to be fined £2,000. It looks like he can cross “crashing with Julian Assange” off his list of places to stay.
