Ever the crack military analyst, Lt. Col. Oliver North predicted that the Russians will kill famed National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and pin the murder on the United States.

“Edward Snowden is in the hands of the Russian intelligence services. Everyone he meets every day with is a Russian intelligence agent,” North said Tuesday on the Fox News show, “Markets Now.” “They’re all asking the questions: ‘How do the Americans do this? Can we do this? How do we protect ourselves from what you’re doing? How do we penetrate things like the American data system for, let’s say, the Affordable Care Act?’ And at the end of the day, what will happen is the Russians will kill Edward Snowden. And we will be blamed for it.”

Given Russian President Vladimir Putin’s momentum in the Middle East and the tenuous relationship between the Obama administration and the Russians, prospects don’t look good, for Snowden or America. Snowden’s death would benefit Russia, North said. He also offered this advice to Secretary of State John Kerry:

“And the reason they’ll kill him is because they don’t want us to know how much he gave away. This is a very, very serious problem. And what Mr. Kerry really ought to be doing is traveling to Moscow to see if he can convince Edward Snowden’s dad to get the kid back home to face the music because the Russians will kill him.”

When asked about Obama’s handling of intelligence matters and the NSA scandal, North said the president hasn’t done his job well in either case.

“I don’t think this president has handled anything in regards to national security in this country well.”

    Oliver is a douche criminal… He is not an expert at anything other than lying….

    So what’s the takeaway here? Ollie is trying to set up an alternative narrative if the US is successful in killing Snowden. Blame the Russians! He hasn’t done that before:-)

    If Ollie is actually “crack” rather than being on it, he knows already that the US has to assume Snowden told the Russians everything he knows. It doesn’t matter in an intelligence sense if he did or not at this point…they could never be sure he didn’t so they have to go forward assuming he did. That’s like “SPY 101″…and I’m sure Ollie knows this. So the Russians might kill Snowden some day for some other reason…but it wouldn’t be because they would worry that the US might get him back and find out what he told them because THE RUSSIANS KNOW the US has to strategically assume he did…that’s just how it works. So I just wonder if the US is getting close?

    Something tells me North has it backwards… I think it more likely the USA will kill Snowden and blame it on the russians.

    From an article that was written in 1989… we do not forget…

    Oliver North won’t go to prison even though he lied to Congress, shredded White House documents and accepted a $14,000 security fence from an Iran-contra arms profiteer. His punishment of 1,200 hours of community service, $150,000 fine and three years’ suspended sentence doesn’t fit his felonies. Even a brief imprisonment might have inspired more public officials to comply with the law and legitimate inquiries from Congress.

    Perhaps uniquely among convicted felons, Mr. North escapes prison largely because he still will not acknowledge that what he did was a crime and a perversion of public service. ”Jail would only harden your misconceptions,” said the trial judge, Gerhard Gesell.

    Thus did Oliver North, who cowed the Iran-contra committees, who won dismissal of the most serious charges against him and who persuaded a jury to acquit him of nine other counts, outwit one of the canniest Federal judges. Indeed, Mr. North clearly expected tougher terms from the judge who had brilliantly cut through complex issues of evidence and national security to bring the case to the sentencing stage. The closest Mr. North came to contrition was his mumbled statement: ”I grieve over what has happened and I truly do pray about it every day. I have made many mistakes and as a result of those mistakes I have been convicted of serious crimes.” He apparently rues getting caught more than committing felonies.

      Yes, communist sympathizers rarely forget. I half expected your long cut and paste to whine about Nixon’s suspected offenses while forgetting to mention Obama has several provable impeachable offenses.
