NAANTALI, Finland Russian President Vladimir Putin bluntly rejected U.S. pleas to turn over National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden on Tuesday, saying he is free to travel wherever he wants and insisting that Russian security agencies haven't contacted him.
Snowden is in the transit zone of a Moscow airport and has not passed through Russian immigration, Putin said, meaning he is not technically in Russia.
A high-ranking Ecuadorean official told The Associated Press that Russia and Ecuador were discussing where Snowden could go, saying the process could take days. He also said Ecuador's ambassador to Moscow had not seen or spoken to Snowden. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

why should he, they wanted Soros and we never turned him over and hwo are we to give demands right now and Snowden told us all how Obama. and his goons have bene spying on us all
Russia wanted Soros? did he screw them over too?
I would LOVE to see what they would do to him...
that settles it ... no ride.
if I was this guy , I would ( at this point) fly straight in to a New York City airport , there to met by a group of ACLU lawyers and 80% of the media in NYC and turn myself in . Face the music straight on , and take the Obama spying administration to the mat . If you cant hide it , hang a bell on it . Forward to the foe . Charge ! ..
Actually, since the State Dept. has invalidated Snowden’s passport, he could not get past Immigration of any US airport. Sorry.
Snowden is helping the underground Left and underground terrorists more than anyone else, whether or not that was his aim.
Snowden (case) is helping fools everywhere post rubbish from their heads on Internet forums.
Putin gives the Candy-Striper a hearty spanking.
A high-ranking Ecuadorean official (speaking on condition of anonymity) told AP that Russia and Ecuador were discussing Snowden's destination.
NO SURPRISE NSA leaker Snowden seeks asylum in corrupt Ecuador---taxpayers know sap-happy Ohaha wont queer that deal---b/c O needs Third World latinos to keep dems in power.
(Wiki leaker Julian Assange is staying at Ecuador's embassy in Britain---his group is financing fellow-leaker Snowden)
BTW, the US has no diplos in Ecuador---they threw out the one we had b/c our diplo squealed on their corruption and heroin drug-running.....but Ecuador still gets some $35 million foreign aid from the US........PLUS tax dollars illegal Ecuadorians living here send back home.
The stranglehold corrupt Third Worlds--like Ecuador--- have on the US was never more apparent than with the immigration reform atrocity.
A GLARING EXAMPLE---The corrupt Dominican Republic depends on the $$BILLION US tax dollars PER YEAR its illegal populations in the US send back home to the impoverished Third World hellhole.

Thanks Liz ... A timely reminder!
Rollin’ back ...
Are you sure about that?
I haven't been able to find much information on George Soros being charged with anything in Russia, let alone the US receiving an extradition request for him.
The only place I know of in which he has been convicted is France.
hwo are we to give demands right now
The US is a sovereign nation and is entitled to execute warrants for US citizens, certainly, and for others who have violated its laws.
Are you saying that the US should, alone among nations, never dare to request extradition?
today I had to turn my heart away.
make up something quick!
maybe the real thing doesn’t do nothing, quick, I’ll see you again. Smile Again!
Don't leave it in San Francisco! :0)
