Skip to comments.Putin Says Snowden Is Still In the Moscow Airport, and Won't Be Extradited
Posted on 06/25/2013 9:05:50 AM PDT by Freelance Warrior
While on a trip to Finland today, Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters that wanted NSA Leaker Edward Snowden is still in the transit area of Moscow's airport, and thus, technically not on Russian soil. He also confirmed that Russian law enforcement will not arrest him or extradite him to the United States, saying he is "a free man," but the sooner he chooses his final destination, the better.
Putin also deployed one of the better similes we've heard in a while: "In any case, I would like not to deal with such issues because it is like shearing a pig: there's lots of squealing and little fleece."

Let’s see if the ego-maniac has our jets force an Aeroflot plane to land at a NATO air base in Germany.
AWWWW MOMMYYYY!!!! Putin does not want to hand over Snowden Waaaaaaa!!!!
I’m a little surprised they haven’t called Putin a racist yet.
Translation: Putin knows that Snowden doesn't have intelligence of any value to him or Russia so he's not going to bother with him.
To me this confirms my suspicions that if Snowden had anything of "value" beyond showing how the US Government is spying on its own citizens, he'd have been "disappeared" by now.
Snowden's got nothing of value to offer to any foreign country, other than the opportunity to mock and ridicule the Obama Administration (which many are now doing.)
I agree with your assessment.
Im a little surprised they havent called Putin a racist yet.
I can picture Putin with one of his -hit eatin’ grins if he heard that. LOL
He’s enjoying watching sissy boy Obama squirming.
Never thought I’d say this but, I’m rooting for the Russians on this one! Anything to make Odumbass look even weaker than he is!
> Im a little surprised they havent called Putin a racist yet.
No point in it.
Putin’s reply would be something like, “And your point is ...?”
Confirmed by the fact that the Chinese let him go.
This is great!
“”In any case, I would like not to deal with such issues because it is like shearing a pig: there’s lots of squealing and little fleece.”
I will use that as a new tagline.
So it’s OK with you that a traitor skates if it embarrasses a politician you disagree with? You’re quite the patriot, aren’t you?
The more I read about this the more I am convinced that Snowden doesn’t really exist. He is a figment of the RATS imagination that is being used to shift focus away from the real scandals and new legislature that will screw us royally.
Just wait....Obamaster Admin will accuse Putin of being an accomplice of George Zimmerman....and order Putin to turn himself in
How many nuclear wars would we be fighting right now if this man had won in 2008?
Did anybody else notice our Sissy Boy Kenyan was just Biatch Slapped by the manly KGB Agent? :))))
Obama and his band of Socialist Statist are a lot more danger to our freedoms, than Putin. You don't read much do you?
Sounds like ol’ Pooty-Poot knows a thing or two about shearing pigs!
If there was such a thing as an International Respect Meter we are probably at the lowest point since the 1820's or 1830's.
Take that, you university dweebs. Putin is making fun of the Obama cult big time.
Yes. That's when I first asked the question "if this guy had anything of value, would the Chinese have simply let him walk away?" I don't recall which of the dozens of threads I asked that (or a very similar) question on, but it's struck me since the beginning that if Snowden had anything of real value, he'd have been "disappeared" by now.
Putin's statement this morning was (to me ...) confirmation that my original theory was correct.
So now the next question: Exactly how does the Obama Administration expect to Indict, Convict and Incarcerate Snowden on the "National Security" grounds they've been claiming?
I'd think even the low information voters would be questioning Obama and Holder on that one ....
I hoping this flushes out the real power brokers (Valerie Jarrett and friends) and causes them to say something disagreeable (and stupid) about Putin.
Obama’s handlers are going to have to up the dose of happy pills they have been giving their wimp.
There has always been a threat that the Russians would come, but I never dreamed they would come as the cavalry, so to speak. LOL
Vlad makes me smile. He has a sense of humor and is a strong leader even if he is a commie....... Wish we had a strong leader.
Don’t forget the Carter years....
Well, we got a commie, anyway.
Anyone that even remotely supports the jackass in chief is a traitor. Your remark could be construed as such.
I will enjoy my new tag line.
First off, I disagree with most politicians as they are all liars! Secondly, for you to call out my patriotism is BULLSHITTT! Anyone who exposes the blatant violation of our constitutional rights is a hero in my book! I don’t even think you know what patriotism is! Maybe you can take a course from Nancy, Chuck or McCain! Sounds like you fit right in with that crew!
Hmmmm....which side to take, the America hating communist, or Putin? Think I’ll just sit back and enjoy watching the fraud get beotchslapped.
Snowden is your “hero”? Very interesting in light of his admission that he only took the job in order to expose national security operations.
