A previous post noted that Pres. Carter said that the US does not have a functioning democracy, and in the same Der Spiegel article he defended Snowden.  With the help of some rich non-US person sympathetic to Snowden to supply the jet, we can test our democracy’s functionality and adherence to laws, including international ones, by having the former President help escort Mr. Snowden to South America.  Then when he returns to the US, Mr. Carter promptly turns himself in to the FBI to see what happens after having aided a wanted felon.
