Politics Breaking News: U.S. Says Allowing Snowden to Leave Airport would Be Disappointing

by Wochit 1:16 mins

The State Department said The United States would be deeply disappointed if Russia were to allow fugitive former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden to leave Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport. Snowden, who is wanted by the United States for revealing details of U.S. government intelligence, arrived in Russia on June 23 from Hong Kong, where he had fled to escape capture and trial in the United States on espionage charges. In a major policy speech at a high school in Galesburg, Ill., the president outlined a series of proposals that he argued would boost middle-class security and enable better economic mobility. But Obama also nodded to the political challenges he?s encountered. Washington has ?taken its eye off the ball? and gridlock ?has gotten worse,? he said, placing the blame squarely with the House GOP. U.S. President Barack Obama sought to inject momentum into his economic and domestic policy agenda with a speech designed to clarify his vision for his second term and hammer Republicans in the House of Representatives for getting in his way.
