BEIJING, June 28 (Xinhuanet) -- U.S. President Barack Obama has ruled out diplomatic "wheeling and dealing" in attempts to extradite US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden. He was speaking at a news conference in Senegal at the start of his African tour.
Obama said the case would be handled through routine legal channels. The president indicated that he did not want to ruin ties with Moscow and Beijing over Snowden. He said the US relationships with Russia and China were broad and ranged over many issues. Obama said he had not called Chinese President Xi Jinping or Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss the Snowden case.

wow, perhaps my theory that Snowden is getting used to expose the GOPer Pink Mafia might have some legs to it. Obummer didn't even make a phone call to Beijing or Moscow. I bet Linda Graham will soon have a fabulous melt down.
I doubt anyone believes anything he (Obama) says.
Snowden is currently taking the blame for this catastrophe when it really lies on the NSA and Hussein’s corrupt administration. Hussein doesn’t want Snowden.
That’s true too. Sometimes by focusing too much on Snowden we forget the big picture. Barry’s snooping on all of us. I’m gonna try to stop looking too much into Snowden stories, but too often there’s some new development. It’s like watching an detective show on TV when you’re really supposed to go some place at that time. You keep wanting to leave but then some new plot intrigue develops and you want to watch more but you know you don’t have time for it.
I just find it all too convenient that shortly after the NSA scandal broke Snowden surfaced and “voluntarily confessed taking the heat off Hussein. It’s also very convenient that Snowden is out of reach making him a perfect scapegoat for Hussein’s lawlessness. Hussein is, without a doubt, the most corrupt president of my lifetime. I don’t trust him.
Never under-estimate a con-man with a fake birth certificate who gets himself elected to the White House. He’s 100% evil but he’s smart too.
GIve the Russians New York City in exchange for Snowden.
I doubt 0’s IQ is over 100. He is a teleprompter reading sock puppet.
Translation: I'm tired of being Bitch Slapped by all my Commie "friends" and I'm such a sissy boy that Ecuador is in line to join in the fun....
Why would Obama want to give exposure to Snowden, who could easily reveal what REALLY happened in Benghazi?
You betcha Obama won’t be calling anyone to have Snowden extradited. The Russians will have to fund the Snowden campaign against Obama, and more power to them.
