The Justice Department needs to think this stuff over before talking to the media. Who's approving these talking points?

The latest quote out of this Time Magazine article:

“Mr. Snowden’s claim that he is focused on supporting transparency, freedom of the press and protection of individual rights and democracy is belied by the protectors he has potentially chosen: China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador,” the official said. “His failure to criticize these regimes suggests that his true motive throughout has been to injure the national security of the U.S., not to advance Internet freedom and free speech.”

Hey dumbasses, you're going after him for espionage. You're going after him with such force and threat, that the places where he will be the safest from arrest are the countries that we're at odds with the most. Good job idiots. I'm sure he'd be just find living in the United States if you'd let him, but if you haven't noticed lately, he's sort of a a priority of the US Government at the moment to track down and arrest. Any friendly country to the US that he could go to would send him right back. So you're forcing his hand of going to the countries of our enemies. Did you not really think this stuff through?

And he's not criticizing those regimes because he's trying to get on their good side so he can live there in peace. Why would he start talking shit about the countries that might be offering him asylum? Do you even think this stuff over before you open your big mouths? This has been such an embarrassment for our government and these stupid comments in the press aren't helping. Get your shit together already.

We're Calling BS on The Tornado Hunt 2013 Vehicles Caught in the Tornado Story

This picture along with the story that several of the vehicles manned by the "Weather Channel Tornado Hunt Team" were damaged and in one particular instance thrown 200 yards, are making the rounds lately. Everyone survived, with only minor injuries. "What we were trying to do was just get away from it and get to the south side of it. But what ended up happening was all three of our vehicles that we chase with were all hit by it," says Meteorologist Mike Bettes.

How convenient. The tornado hunt vehicles getting caught in a tornado. Is that ironic? Obvious? It seems a little too perfect for the Weather Channel, who is now trying to milk these pictures and the story for all they're worth.

So where's the video of all this from inside? Oh, there is none? You mean 3 tornado hunt vehicles are driving around and actually find themselves in the middle of a tornado, and somehow not one of them catches it on video? So far all we have is a couple pictures of a beat up vehicle prominently displaying the Tornado Hunt logo.

Take a look at this wider shot where it almost looks like someone just parked it a little off the road. There's cars driving by that appear to be having no problem, while the Tornado Hunt vehicle is all by itself with no other vehicles that had been tossed.


Could this turn out to have actually happened? Maybe, but for now we're calling BS. Looks like a stunt.
