like i said, you may be right .. but i think almost every president since reagan has had to deal with some other leader in the world doing that they can to stick it to the most powerful man in the world .. that's just my opinion ... i think putin's response is weak saying that snowden hasn't comitted a crime, so i can't send him back ... he has no valid passport and probably doesn't have a visa to be in russia, i don't know if him being in the transit area of the airport makes it so that he doesn't need one ...
