Why the US would prefer Snowden stay in Russia than elsewhere? [View all]

Because America understands how Russia operates and Russia understand how America operates. Both have been spying on each other for a very long time. There are few surprises. Better with the enemy we know.

Also, Snowden has painted himself into a corner. He does not choose to stay in Russia but he has nowhere else to go that can offer the security that Russia offers. Granted, when you make your bed, you have to sleep in it. Either he can come back to America and face the music or he can stay in Russia and sing to the music.

The unrelenting propaganda war has turned against Snowden in recent days. Russia and the US will be negotiating for his release, if the US can make a substantial offer to the Russians. Putin will not surrender him for nothing.

Regardless, the controversy will continue. Did he really do great harm to America's security? Or did he do the people of our nation a great service by informing them of what their government was doing in their name? To many, he is a traitor. To others, he is a hero. Only time will tell.
