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.

    Russian foreign minister has rejected US request on Snowden & Equador says that "he is being persecuted". And that is the general consensus in the rest of the world.
    Risking ire on repeating myself i say again that our policies & tactics have alienated most regions and populace where we were once favored.

    Aww @ saywhat, im sorry and good morning. And @ Antoni Gault, you were being sarcastic right? Because im sure you really know why he cant come back. He would NOT get a fair trial for one thing. Much as we would like to think we are the "greatest country on earth" the fact is we are not!

    Good afternoon @chrissy.Agree
    The analysts now say that NSA spying does not target terrorists but most law abiding citizens. Only the "most stupidest and lowest ranking terrorists would use what NSA spies upon".

    As you can tell by the above posts @ saywhat, people DO tend to persecute anyone who speaks their oprnions! Unfortunately for those persacutors, I do NOT care whether people agree with me or not, i have no problem voicing my views! And as i also have said many times before, and will continue to say: Our government has spent so much time interfering and trying to control americans personal lives and liberties, that they have failed to do the very things theyve been appointed to do! My main objective to losing our privacy rights is the fact that they have decieved us as to what they are doing and WHY! I detest dishonesty!

    I also beg to draw attention of thinking Americans since CNN is on a hold mode on this blog and we wouldn't be getting updates, to the interview of retired French FM Duma given to French tv LCP on June 15. Its on Global Research now.

    It reveals shockingly (for some) how Syrian war was planned two years before the Arab Spring, who induced the AlQaeda 'rebels' into Syria and supports them and what are the ultimate goals relying on America to sacrifice its soldiers and treasure once again for the perpetraotor. How a reluctant Obama is being goaded to do just that by Britain & France on the behest of the country who is pushing its global agenda of annihilation..

    Lol @ saywhat, EXACTLY! They are gonna be very bored if they spend much time reviewing my personal conversations (well with the exception of some of my ahem "colorful" words maybe) but the fact remains that they are wasting resources that would be better used elsewhere! And yes ive seen the arguements from other posters, some that DONT even live in the US, so it doesnt affect them at all! It still is an infringement on OUR right to privacy!

    I would urge all patriotic Americans & my friends to read it for this country's sake.You'll find it by searching for it on Global Research website.

    And if people took the time to research this subject, they might be surprised at just how many of "our" rights we HAVE lost over time since the bill of rights was put in place and now! The more rights the citizens lose, the more the government gets! And then what? We have none eventually!

    Lol yep @ saywhat. And it troubles me how quickly people dimiss how this young man risked everything to inform americans what is REALLY going on, and just label him a traitor! In reality, he was very brave blowing the whistle on what was going on behind our backs! And he had nothing to gain and everything to lose by doing this!
