Russia has not received extradition request for Snowden from the United States, the Justice Ministry said Thursday. The ministry did receive a letter from Eric Holder explaining some aspects of the U.S. position on the status of Snowden... The "document did not contain (a) request for the extradition or deportation of this individual," the statement said.

Watch Obama do something stupid like authorize a drone strike, killing some Russians in the process. Wouldn’t that be grand?

As long as Snowden isn’t giving anyone any military technological secrets or anything that would compromise national security, I feel like this guy is a true American Hero.

There is not one person that is okay with their privacy being invaded. Anywhere, not one.

The Obama administration doesn’t want him back.

Soros is not welcome in many countries but in Russia he stands indicted as a wanted criminal who has refuge in the USA. A trade Soros for Snowden might be plausible, but it wouldn’t really appeal to me because I believe Soros and his like ilk are far more dangerous to the USA than Snowden.

Yes indeed.
The plot thickens.

I always had the gut feeling this guy was working for team Obama.
The USA looks bad, but somehow Obama doesn’t get any on him.

The last thing this gov’t wants is to see Snowden back in the good ol’ U.S. of A.

His trial would open up a can of worms for the feds in any court proceeding.

If the USA and Russia have no agreement on extradiction, then what would be the use of such a document? I can understand its value in Venezuela, at least - they are short on toilet paper there.

Typically countries do not send each other requests that they cannot enforce. I think this is one of such cases - an angry, toothless letter, written by a clerk at the State Department. No response, outside of a popular gesture, is expected.

I’d bet there are many hard core progressive Obama supporters that welcome and support conservative’s privacy being invaded.

Of course not. Obama is like a fly-he craps on everything he touches but never gets crapped on.

Why not....he just kept taking their abuse and never defended himself.

And his Dad was at the White House last week kissing up to Obama, an avowed enemy of the USA who is destroying us. Disgusting.

Snowden claims he had access to Obamas communications, yet there was nothing to see there.
It’s just a rouge gov agency, like the IRS.

Spill it Snowden or STFU!
This guy is a ruse of some sort.

BINGO!!!

They’re using him. He exposes the NSA abuses and they throw the blame back at him. It takes a lot of pressure off of them and distracts from the real implications.

The United States is no longer a sovereign nation. The powers that be are not looking out for the USA but only the special interests in the USA that can support their agendas.

It’s all a big world wide game now. It’s sad and disgusting.

I agree.

But, it just seems that anything pushed by a Republican is criminal but they will defend to death the exact same thing forced upon us by a dem.

And this fellow was not even a high level operator.
He was a HS drop out and a very young contractor.

I find it all difficult to believe, that he had his hands all over the buttons and that he sussed out the great injustice, dumped his pole dancer girlfriend, his cushy job in Hawaii, and sported off to Hong Kong to save the world from the USA.

That’s because they are Useful Idiots and will support their master’s agenda. They are ideology driven. Obama is a sonofabitch but he is their sonofabitch.

He probably already did, To Putin.
This guy has been pedaling his story to the highest bidder all over the world.
A regular hot potato.
China did not want him.
Communist SA did not want him.

Clean pure Iceland did not want him.

The USA WANTS him but now Holder says its no biggie.

But it’s not against the law.

No one no where no how likes their privacy invaded.

They don’t want him. If they try him lots of stuff will come out. They hope he disappears into Russian life.

Progressives/leftists don’t seem to recognize that Obama is moving into the same league as Stalin and Hitler. The ones that do don’t mind because he’s their man.

That’s a definite possibility. If so, it looks like there are no patriots left in our intelligence community.

As goofy as it may sound- this was staged, as a soft push introduction, to the way Our Government has and will continue to Govern. We have been subverted. Tyranny is now fully in control.

Yep. Obama is moving into the same league as Stalin or Hitler or Mao.

Thank God for the Second Amendment.

I think he’ll leave office no problem, barring a major catastrophe. But it doesn’t matter who’s next in line, I’m sure people already have the next person groomed and ready to go, got all their dominoes in a line and are waiting for the election to continue what Obama has done.

It doesn’t matter to me if it’s Obama, or Bush, or Clinton. Whoever it is will not be a Reagan. We’ve had neocons and people getting ready for a one world government for the past what, 20 years? Maybe it won’t be Obama that strikes that match, but it will be someone.

Well said.

Yes, Ronald Reagan was our last real president.

One World Government is their goal and they must take down the United States before they can achieve that goal.

GHW Bush was at the White House last week kissing up to Obama, an avowed enemy of America who is determined to destroy America. They’re in it together.
