Knowing there is nothing we can do about Snowden while he is in Russia.


    President Barack Obama on Wednesday abruptly canceled a Moscow summit with President Vladimir Putin planned for next month in a retaliation for Russia's decision to grant asylum to fugitive U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden.



    The cancellation marks a stark low point in U.S.-Russian relations in the years since Obama embarked on a "reset" in ties to try to gain more diplomatic cooperation, only to find that deep differences remain.

    "Following a careful review begun in July, we have reached the conclusion that there is not enough recent progress in our bilateral agenda with Russia to hold a U.S.-Russia summit in early September," White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

    The Russian government expressed disappointment at the decision, which means Obama will skip Moscow talks with Putin but still attend a G20 summit in St. Petersburg September 5-6. Obama will stop in Sweden on September 4 to replace the Moscow visit.

    I don't think it's a wise move. With all the friction that's been going on between the US and Russia, it's imperative that we meet and get things worked out. The Cold War is over, it's time to act like it.

    Then you should know damn good and well the Non-Disclosure agreement you signed did not say "I will only release classified information that I FEEL is wrong". It says you will not disclose ANY classified information. Snowden is a disgrace and a criminal that should be behind bars. Through his OWN ADMISSION he says he took the job to gather classified information on the program to release it. That shows intent on committing a crime.

    You call him a hero, go figure.

    "Strong countries and strong presidents meet and talk with our adversaries" So Obama are you not a strong president or is this not a strong country or both?

    I understand you will stand by a government that violates it's citizens rights. That's your prerogative. I see that as part of the problem.
