Edward Snowden Seeking Refuge in Newton County, Arkansas

Snowden chose the location due to the remoteness of the region and the lack of any sort of outside communication. Snowden hopes that this will make him harder to track than other locations. “Originally I thought about going to Ecuador, but that didn’t feel remote enough for me,” Snowden says. “After running through 20 or 30 possible locations I decided on the hills of North Arkansas. The people there have not seen outsider contact in 30 years, it was a perfect place to make a new home.”

The US government for the past several weeks has used cell phone and internet records to track Snowden’s movements across the globe. That access is the very thing that Snowden leaked originally that put him on the run. By venturing to North Arkansas Snowden feels he will finally get to live in peace by being far away from internet and cell phone connections.
