Edward Snowden is still at the airport in Moscow and doesn’t seem about to leave any time soon.
Ecuador says their decision on granting him asylum could take two months, which is how long it took them to decide on Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, who lives at the Ecuador Embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden.
Ecuador says they could protect Snowden sooner if he got to their embassy in Moscow, but Russia won’t let him leave the transit area of the airport because he doesn’t have a visa to enter Russia.
Meanwhile, the U. S. is still trying to convince the Russians to turn Snowden over.
Snowden hasn’t been indicted for anything that would result in the death penalty. The most he can get under the current charges is 30 years.
