You know as well as I that the Department of Justice is working on getting Snowden back to the United States. The fact that President Obama has placed limits on how far we are willing to go makes common sense. Ecuador needs us. We don't need Ecuador.<quoted text>
Assumes facts not in evidence. Perhaps Snowden has much more information. Besides, why is Barry too lazy to try? No wheeling or dealing or trading, just a firm unconditional demand for his return. Unless Barry is afraid to have Snowden back where he could testify in court about NSA abuses of civil liberties.
And, we certainly don't need Snowden back in the United States. Sure, trying him for espionage, theft of government property, leaking national defense information and revealing classified information about communications intelligence would be ideal but expelling him to Ecuador for the rest of his life is fine with me. At least the tax payers won't be picking up the tab for a lengthy trial and 30+ years of imprisonment.
From everything I have read and heard, we know exactly what information Snowden has in his possession. He has done irreparable damage to our country but the damage has been done. Terrorists now know how to protect themselves from our surveillance programs thanks to traitor Snowden.
