Ministry of Irony: Snowden Seeking Assylum in Nation Who Founded KGB

Layers upon layers of irony in that Snowden is seeking to stay in the the USSR, hiding from the United States' surveillance state.

Edward Snowden has abandoned his effort to seek asylum in Russia after President Vladimir Putin warned that he would have to stop leaking information about U.S. surveillance programs if he wanted to stay, a Russian official said Tuesday.
What? You thought Putin, former head of the KGB, was like against domestic surveillance?

I don't even know where to begin on that.
