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.

NSA Reform Bill Splits Reformers

Sep 16 2014 3:24pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

James Clapper became public enemy number one for civil liberties groups in 2013 when Edward Snowden's leaks revealed that he lied to Congress about the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance. One year later, the embattled director of national intelligence is the unlikely bedfellow of the American Civil Liberties Union in backing an NSA reform bill that has divided civil liberties groups. The differing views on the bill reflect a more fundamental disagreement abo ...

Bradley Manning says 'Let ISIS Succeed.' I say 'Shut That Cell Door!'

Sep 16 2014 11:55am CDT | Source: Big Government

Have they cut it off yet? The penis attached to traitorous transsexual Chelsea Manning, I mean. How else to explain the level of feverish disturbance necessary for the former Private Bradley to pen an op-ed saying we should "let ISIS succeed" in its mission to destroy half the Middle East, murdering, raping and torturing anyone in its way.  There's no doubt that dealing with ISIS, the Islamic State or whatever those barbarian nutcases are calling themselves this week will ...
