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.

    Good morning all.
    Both China & now Putin himself has dismissed US "ravings" on Snowden.
    I truly feel sympathy for Kerry who has been entrusted with the daunting task of traveling & explaining a non-existent foreign policy to the world. A policy which has done nothing but discredited us, robbed us of our prestige & credibility.

    Well two years before the ' Arab Spring' Israel planned the Syrian war inducing these rebels into Syria with S.Arab on board, relying as always that US would be more than willing to put its troop on the line & its national treasure at their disposal for we are in no position to refuse what our leaders in Tel Aviv command.

    Our geopolitical standing & how rest of the world takes us is directly related to the direction of our foreign policy & that relates directly to the Snowden case. The NSA snooping is also a part of our outlook which was shaped by the previous admn to protect their agenda & keep an eye on any opposition of that more than anything else and continues .
    So its all intertwined.

    Well as of today, still in Moscow. If he's not in some windowless concrete building somewhere being grilled by Russian agents, then he's still in the airport. So how long can someone live in an airport in immigration limbo? The record is 18 years.
