    Obama Cancels Meeting with Russia's Putin over Snowden Decision.....

    Looks like Snowden and that issue has now taken it's toll. Even though Obama wont meet with Putin. Kerry and Hagel with still meet with their counterparts. Although Jay Carney should check a bit more into what cooperation actually means. Do you think that Russia will Now cooperate with us all because of this? I think Putin is laughing his ass off. 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.

    The US and Russia will always have very different interests in the world. IMO, in private Obama is thrilled that Snowden's stuck in Russia, but he can't come out and say it. Putting Snowden on trial just puts the NSA on trial. Leave him in Russia and everybody will forget about him before too long. We would probably do the same thing for a "Russian Snowden."

    Yeah, Obama is a whiner and a cry baby when he doesn't get his way. What else is new?

    If he did go to the meeting, you'd criticize him for that.

    Heya Rockett. I was thinking about the Coverage and what all could come out. So I think that is a good idea as long as Snowden doesn't release anything else. Course then there is that issue of Putin getting what he wants out of Snowden himself. Especially anything he can use.

    Already Johnny Quest McCain has tweeted his approval to Obama. So he is getting Kudo's from both sides on this.

    Although.....the Democrats might want to take Schumer out of that process. No need to keep that sniveling weak puke in Government any longer.

    I doubt Snowden really has any secrets they want. When it comes to surveillance on their own citizens, we probably have more to learn from Putin than he does from us!
