U.S. urges Russia to expel Snowden

Washington is urging Moscow to send Edward Snowden back to the United States instead of letting him fly to Ecuador for asylum.

"We expect the Russian government to look at all options available to expel Mr. Snowden back to the U.S. to face justice for the crimes with which he is charged," U.S. National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said early Monday.

    As an American, I haven't considered Russia an ally since WWII, and even then they weren't exactly our tootsie-wootsie.

    I'm loving the fact that other worldly counties are not bowing to the USA. America is waking up after all the cool aid they've been sold and consumed

    I'm sad that the USA has lost power. Reports that my country "urges" or "warns" another country no longer signify that a criminal, or an alleged criminal or traitor, will probably be extradited.

    Lol @ RR.
    Also keep this in mind.
    The “supremacy clause” is dealt with in Mack/Printz, in which the U.S. Supreme Court stated once and for all, that the only thing “supreme” is the Constitution itself. Where by the powers, the Sheriff reigns supreme above the president.

    Does there remain any governmental Horatius who can stand in the gap; who can lead the Battle for America and restore the Constitution? There is. Lock and load, mount up and prepare for the return of the Sheriff.
