Russian President Vladimir Putin says Edward Snowden is free to go. I would describe Putin’s mood as gleeful. Since Snowden is at the Moscow airport and hasn’t gone through passport control, Putin doesn’t feel that he’s entered Russian territory, but is “in transit.” Anybody think the Moscow airport isn’t Russian territory?
The U. S. and Russia don’t have an extradition treaty.
Supposedly, negotiations are continuing. I assume the U. S. knows that Putin likes sports jewelry, preferably championship rings he “can kill someone with.”
