CIA finally allows Bryan Tew to book a ticket out of EcuadorĀ 

Bryan says he has dropped his appeal to receive asylum so he can get his ass out of Eucador. It seems that he received temporary asylum while his appeal is being considered. 

I think what Bryan failed to understand is that asylum isn’t like the Witness Protection Program where you get a new identity, a free home, and extra police protection. Bryan seemed to be under the impression that they would (or even could) do something about the “CIA” and their attacks. They just gave him a piece of paper that allowed him to stay in Ecuador – that’s it. 

There are special cases where countries will take in people on a case by case basis and do exactly that – a new identity, a place to live, and personal protection. Examples of this might be foreign officials who want to defect and have something valuable to contribute (i.e. Intelligence) in exchange for that kind of protection. But Bryan is just a lunatic with a persecution complex.

His final destination is Beijing. His last trip involved a botched hospital stay where – I believe that’s where his insurance company found out he was defrauding them and cancelled his policy as he lay in the hospital bed, and the hospital tried to get the American Embassy involved which resulted in him fleeing the hospital.
