Libération editorial: France should give Snowden asylum
Issued on: Modified:
On Wednesday, French daily Libération revealed - via WikiLeaks - that the United States has been spying on top French officials, including the last three French presidents. This Thursday the Libé editorial says the one way to punish condescending US behaviour is to reward Edward Snowden with asylum in France. The French papers are in uproar at Washington's wholesale snooping and the long-term impact it will have on relations between allies.
