Obama has no interest in Snowden, Putin ends 1987 arms treaty, what could go wrong?

All one can say is that Obama is clueless in how diplomacy works. After warnings from Kerry and Feinstein that lives may be at risk with the information that Snowden has, Obama now downgrades him to just a 29-year-old hacker. Does Obama realize what a jackass he makes himself and the United States look like?

Meanwhile, Russia just announced it is ditching Reagan’s 1987 arms treaty.

Weaponry: As the commander in chief calls for a one-third  reduction in our nuclear arsenal, Russia builds new midrange missile banned  under a 1987 arms treaty. How’s that “reset” button working out, Mr.  President?

Russia’s playing host to Edward Snowden, arguably a traitor with secrets to  share with Moscow and a danger to our national security interests, is a slap in  the face. So is the testing of the Yars-M ballistic missile, a weapon with a  range prohibited by the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

One cannot but be stunned by this man’s arrogance.

“My continued expectation is that Russia or other countries that have talked about potentially providing Mr. Snowden asylum recognize that they are a part of an international community and they should be abiding by international law,” Obama said, noting that the U.S. doesn’t have a formal extradition treaty with Russia.

“I get why it’s a fascinating story,” Obama added. “I’m sure there will be a made-for-TV movie somewhere down the line.”

DAKAR, Senegal — The United States won’t be scrambling military jets or engaging in high-level diplomatic bartering to get National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden extradited to the U.S., President Barack Obama said Thursday.

Dismissing him as “a 29-year-old hacker,” Obama sought to downplay the international chase for Snowden, lowering the temperature of an issue that has already raised tensions between the U.S. and uneasy partners Russia and China.

“I’m not going to have one case with a suspect who we’re trying to extradite suddenly be elevated to the point where I’ve got to start doing wheeling and dealing and trading on a whole host of other issues, simply to get a guy extradited so he can face the justice system,” Obama said at a joint news conference with Senegal’s President Macky Sall.

Obama said he hadn’t personally called either Russian President Vladimir Putin or Chinese President Xi Jinping to request their cooperation.

“I shouldn’t have to,” he declared.

    I’m sure that Russia and China hope that this country will continue the legacy of electing “community organizers” to the office. It makes life so much sweeter for them.
