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.

    But these same people have plenty to say when they discover how other financial waste goes on in the government, particularly when it concerns helping the poor and needy in this country!

    And i would also like to add, americans WANT the world to THINK we are the greatest country in the world, but....how can we be the greatest country when after we have borrowed money from China, we show our appreciation by SPYING on them?? Thats NOT honorable nor is it appreciative! Thats devious, dishonorable and is not deserving of respect!

    I distinctly remember banasy and chrissy talking about how Bush stole an election. Bush didn't use the Black Panthers at the polls to intimidate voters and if he was stupid enough to do so and get caught he would have been non racist and peosecuted them. Bush did not targey his opponents with tje IRS, EPA, DHS, and NSA. Most importantly Bush spied on foriegn terrorists Obama spied on you and me. You're right it's all lies- straight from a liberal's mouth.

    Hmm. Putin says Snowden is a free man, free to leave any time. But he hasn't left yet. He has not cleared customs and immigration, so he is still in the transit area of the airport. Journalists have been all through that airport and nobody has seen him.

    Make of this what you will.

    My goodness chrissy. But I was not being sarcastic. Your country has such diversity of people and freedom of many choices. You have made yours and I concur. Let the jury "of your peers" decide yes?

    I have changed my S/N three times in the past because of you, little man. Insignificant troll. You are trying my patience. You will get deleted, I'm sure.
    Now as for the subject at hand, obviously Russia has no obligation to extradite Mr. Snowden, but as Secretary of State Mr. Kerry pointed out, there is mutual cooperation between nations in such cases, as this one. This white collar criminal, that's what he is, seems to be supported by many. I am not on that list.
