I'm more worried about "the other" slip. If it's true that E.S. is in some Russian airport,they will do everything in their illegal (abuse of) power to prevent him from reaching any destination. Of course he (or someone down the chain) is going to scramble jets.
They know that IF he gets to any country that's going to grant him asylum, it's going to be a very long halt. Of course, if that doesn't play out, the second option always apply in their sick-twisted-criminal minds: they most certainly will attempt to snatch him in the dark, special force's style. They don't give a single fuck about other Nation's Sovereignty.
For this matters alone, I really hoped he could have stayed in China or Russia, the only two countries that could have granted him some decent protection.
I really hope I'm dead wrong, but hey, it's the U.S.A. "Land of the Free, Home of the Brave"
