Snowden still in transit area at Moscow airport: Putin

Jun 25 2013, 5:10pm CDT | by

Helsinki, June 26 (IANS) Russian President Vladimir Putin, on a visit to Finland, said that US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden was still in the transit area at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.

Helsinki, June 26 — Russian President Vladimir Putin, on a visit to Finland, said that US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden was still in the transit area at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.

Saying that Snowden's arrival was completely unexpected, Putin voiced hope that the case would not impair relations with the US, Xinhua reported.

Putin said he would not turn over Snowden to US authorities because Russia did not have an extradition treaty with the country.

Snowden arrived at Moscow as a "transit passenger" and was free to go anywhere he choses, Putin said following a meeting with his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto.

However, the Russian president expressed hope that Snowden would soon find a destination to leave for.

A Pulitzer prize winning reporter, formerly with the Washington Post, says the major media has mostly given the Obama administration a pass. In a story published yesterday at the Daily Beast, 2006 Pulitzer winning reporter Susan Schmidt agrees that this administration seems to get less scrutiny than previous ones. “With some exceptions, people don’t seem to be digging as hard as they have in other administrations," Schmidt tells the Daily Beast's Lloyd Grove. She adds, "Obama came ...

Oct 29 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Officers of the CIA's clandestine service are often warned: don't fall in love with your agents. This cautionary advice is meant to be interpreted literally and figuratively. In Laura Poitras' compelling, controversial, and ultimately contradictory new documentary Citizenfour, the filmmaker seems to have fallen in love with her "agent" -- in this case the movie's hero, ...
