considering that the USA has advanced technology, CIA-spies, warm-cameras, spy-satellites and so on, it 'd be absurd to think that the USA wasn't fully aware of the fact that Snowden was not on board. What was the USA's motive to humiliate the president of the poorest country of the American continent, where Snowden hardly is interested in seeking asylum? Answer: the USA treated herself on her Independence Day, the USA wanted to laugh and feel good, bullies usually derive sick satisfaction from the suffering of others, especially from that of the weak, the defenseless like from the suffering of the president of a poor country, so I am happy and moved that the South-American states showed chivalry in their common solidarity for Bolivia in the spirit of Dumas' Three Musqetiers: "one for alll and all for one" in the face of the biggest bully of the Earth, the USA. - BRAVO South-American "knights", you've shown admirable uprighteousness and backbone. The USA probably thought that bullying poor Boliva 'd not bear repercussions and therefore Morales was a "safe" target for the USA's bully. Morales was made wait 13 hours in the Vienna airport for his plane's clearance alone. It was intentional tease by the USA alright, no doubt about it.
