Icelandic Pirate Party statement on asylum for Snowden

Icelandic Pirate Party MP Birgitta Jónsdóttir has released a statement on the possibility of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden being granted asylum in Iceland: "Snowden should not come to Iceland unless he will request and be granted citizenship by the Icelandic Parliament. Citizenship is the only legal protection that will shelter him from any demands of extradition to the USA." (Thanks, Jason!)


  1. I know this is a serious issue but I can’t help imagine Iceland’s Parliament making Snowden go through some kind of initiation ritual to prove he’s cool enough to hang with them. Like “OK, you can have your asylum and your citizenship… but not until you harpoon that endangered fin whale.
