[quote:Sleeping Giant:MV8yMjc1NzQ0XzM4Njk3NjUyXzRDM0M5MjQw] [b]King Entitlement Obama shouldn't have to talk to Xi, Putin about Snowden[/b] President Barack Obama said on Thursday he had not yet spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping or Russian President Vladimir Putin about the U.S. request to extradite former American spy agency contractor Edward Snowden. Speaking at a news conference in Senegal at the start of an African tour, Obama said normal legal channels should be sufficient to handle Washington's request that Snowden, who left Hong Kong for Russia, be returned. "I have not called President Xi personally or President Putin personally and the reason is...number one, I shouldn't have to," Obama said. "Number two, we've got a whole lot of business that we do with China and Russia, and I'm not going to have one case of a suspect who we're trying to extradite suddenly being elevated to the point where I've got to start doing wheeling and dealing and trading on a whole host of other issues," Obama said. http://news.yahoo.com/obama-says-shouldnt-talk-xi-putin-snowden-case-121300425.html [/quote]
The US will not try to intercept NSA whistleblower Edward Snowdens flight, President Barack Obama said during his tour to Africa.
Obama announced that US will not be using military jets to go after Snowden, rejecting reports that America might force down a plane carrying the NSA leaker.
The president specified that the US will not engage in "wheeling, dealing and trading" to extradite Edward Snowden, adding that extradition will be carried out through legal channels.
