MANAGUA, July 5- Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said Friday his government would be willing to grant political asylum to Edward Snowden,the U.S. intelligence whistleblower, "if conditions permit."

Ortega also confirmed that his government had received a formal asylum request from Snowden via its embassy in Moscow.

"We received a letter sent by Snowden asking for asylum here in Nicaragua. You know what Nicaragua's position is on the matter.

We are an open country, respectful of the right to asylum," said Ortega.

"Of course, if conditions permit, we will receive Snowden with pleasure and give him asylum here," Ortega added.

Ortega spoke of the letter prior to taking part in a mass march towards the province of Masaya, some 25 kilometers southeast of the capital Managua, as part of a reenactment of a historic guerrilla action against former dictator Anastasio Somoza in July 1979.

Edward J.Snowden 
Snowden, a former contractor with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), blew the lid off the agency's secret global surveillance program, angering Washington, which has charged him with espionage.

Snowden is now reportedly at a Moscow airport transit zone awaiting word on asylum.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
