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.

    Okie dokie @ Mary. And if @ lol you were a little more clearer about WTH you are talking about we might be able to answer you. The biggest financial strain on the US presently is foreign aid! How about we defund that? You can worry about your alphabet soup later ok?

    So here's the deal. Most people don't realize that this guy snitched everything about government. Not just about the phone calls... Hint:hint!!!
    USA should give Putin another Super Bowl ring and call it even by sending Snowden back to the USA. This guy is in big trouble because he has blown many yearly cases. The fact is people should know not to make a big dilemma on their phone. USA will recover and so it's economy. I suggest the interest to stay steady for at least year to years. Today's 30 year old rise was expected because the economy is recovering. People are recovering. People is economy. We are money. We are God's children.

    Now Ecuador's president tells the USA that we mustn't threaten his great nation. The city streets there are too loud to sleep at night, but one can take vacations in their jungles and see big turtles. Darwin wasn't born there. I liked imperialist Anerica. Bring it back.

    "Equador scraps trade deal with US which was under review with Congress"
    Well when lawmakers sans intellect like Menendez (and there are many others) try blackmailing countries they embarrass this nation and this country.

    BHO is a joke. The US has no economy, no more military, no money, borrows four of the six billion they spend daily from China. What power or leverage does the US have? Zip, zero, nada. The US is a big dum fat boy sitting on the sidelines of life.

      You couldn't be more wrong. BHO has done a masterful job trying to fix an economy that was left in shambles by Bush and his war effort while selling out the American public by bailing out banks with no requirement of repayment. Are we still losing 800000 jobs a month, like under Bush? Add to that an uncooperative House that couldn't pass gas, let alone any meaningful legislation, and we have a stalemate.
