Edward Snowden, NSA-leaker extraordinaire, is such a familiar face in world news that he’s almost a household name. But for all the extensive NSA spying capabilities he revealed, US authorities were still not able to get his name right on extradition documents issued to Hong Kong, according to Rimsky Yuen, the city’s justice secretary.

Seeking a provisional arrest warrant for Snowden, the US government submitted documents referring to Edward James Snowden, the Wall Street Journal reported. In another document it just used his middle initial. According to his passport, however, Snowden’s middle name is actually Joseph.

Here's an excerpt from WSJ China Real Time News

Hong Kong’s justice secretary, Rimsky Yuen, says that according to Hong Kong immigration records, Joseph is the middle name in Mr. Snowden’s passport. Yet when the U.S. government submitted documents as part of a request to their Hong Kong counterparts to issue a provisional arrest warrant for the former security contractor, they specified one Edward James Snowden. In another, they simply referred to him as Edward J. Snowden, according to Mr. Yuen.

That, among other factors, helped contribute to the processing of the U.S.’s request. What’s more, Mr. Yuen added, attempts to process the U.S. request were further complicated by the fact that the U.S. didn’t specify any passport number for Mr. Snowden in its documents.


“Until the minute of Snowden’s departure, the U.S. government hadn’t yet replied to our requests for clarification,” he said.“Hong Kong’s government had no legal basis to block his departure,” Mr. Yuen said.“Any suggestion that we have been deliberately letting Mr. Snowden go away or to do any other things to obstruct the normal operation is totally untrue.”

This is why Amerika is sliding down the ladder at an accelerated pace!

EEOC, Affirmative Action, Declarations of Official Victim Groups, "Goals" (gag, QUOTA'S),Collectivisation as Unionista's, and Political Correctness as Law, has resulted in "folks" that are to incompetent to even slide up to the Government Trough to eat, being in postion's at places like the Justice Department, where their inherent Tribal Ineptitude, results in mistakes like this that 6th Graders from Advanced Cultures would not make!
