MOSCOW (AP) -- Russia's foreign minister bluntly rejected U.S. demands to extradite National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, saying Tuesday that Snowden hasn't crossed the Russian border.

Sergey Lavrov insisted that Russia has nothing to do with Snowden or his travel plans. Lavrov wouldn't say where Snowden is, but he lashed out angrily at Washington for demanding his extradition and warning of negative consequences if Moscow fails to comply. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday urged Moscow to "do the right thing" and turn over Snowden.

Do the white thing

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday urged Moscow to "do the right thing"

ROFL!! How the FUCK would Kerry even know what the "right thing" is?

Does the Russian Airport qualify as the Russian Border?

I don't think it does. But I'm not someone who travels so maybe someone else can clear it up.

One has to clear customs to enter a country.

When you land at an International airport you are first in a secure area and must show your documents and request permission to enter the country. You are not immediately free to walk outside. Sometimes you just make a connecting flight and never enter the country.

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.

Well, on the other hand

If we were to target him with a drone strike, we would be attacking a target in Russia.

So diplomatic soil or not, he has chosen a wise route -- that is not the sleeping giant that we want to awaken. Staying in the terminal like Tom Hanks in that movie The Terminal might not be such a bad idea.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

That's what I thought! Thanks!


I had to laugh at this,

"He chooses his route himself, and we have learned about it from the media."
Sounds just like something Obama or his administration would say.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

We, the people don't want ES turned in.

However, if Russia would take Kerry then we could talk.

"Hasn't crossed the border"

That's vague...crossed it in? Or crossed it back out of Russia? Or both for that matter?

Haha I love it!
