Vladimir Putin has had it up to hereski with Edward Snowden and Barack Obama:
In comments reported by Russian news agencies during a meeting with students, Putin noted that Snowden flew to Moscow on June 23 “without invitation,” intending only to transit to another country.
But Putin says the United States intimidated other countries against accepting Snowden, effectively blocking him from flying further.
“Such a present to us. Merry Christmas,” he was quoted as telling the students on the Gulf of Finland island of Gogland.
Meh. If Putin were really that concerned, he’d find a way to off Snowden (Russia does have its own equivalent of the Hellfire) and pin it on Obama. By complaining on the news like he has, Putin gets to continue rubbing Obama’s nose in his own mess — and remind the world who’s really in control.
