3. They already made it clear: "Russia cannot extradite Snowden"

The US is going to have to start working on the quaint notion that other nations, and people in other nations too, have rights. And that there are international rights we need to catch up on too, things like not interfering with the presidential planes of other heads of state.

We are not the be-all, end-all of this world.

Russia has no right to extradite former CIA officer Edward Snowden, State Duma deputy Vyacheslav Nikonov said. He came to the Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport to meet with Snowden.



"Russia has no right to extradite him by international law. He is under protection of Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which says any person who asks for political asylum cannot be extradited," he stressed.
