President Obama And New Zealand PM John Key Discuss Kim Dotcom

Kim Dotcom is currently fighting in New Zealand and US courts to have the charges against Megaupload and himself dropped. It’s not exactly getting much play in the mainstream news, but something new happens every week. It’s actually kind of surprising that President Obama hasn’t even addressed it since it’s his administration that’s leading the offensive against Dotcom. Well, as it turns out, Obama will talk about Dotcom, but only in private.

Stuff reports that Obama and New Zealand Prime Minister John Key both attended the East Asia Summit in Cambodia this week to discuss various issues facing these nations. During the summit, Obama and Key met up in private to discuss Dotcom. It’s noted that Key was reluctant to even say that they discussed Dotcom, and refused to give any details on what the talk entailed.

Dotcom wasn’t going to sit idly by as world leaders talked about him behind closed doors. He took to Twitter to ask Obama for some green cards:

Back in July, Dotcom formally addressed Obama in a music video called “Mr. President.” As expected, Obama didn’t respond in any way to Dotcom’s first attempt at contact. It likely will remain this time as well unless Dotcom is able to successfully have the case against Megaupload dropped in the US courts.

In other news, Dotcom just hit the top 50 in the leaderboards for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but he still hates the game. He’s going back to Modern Warfare 3.
