    LOL This has got to gall Obama. To get lectured by Putin on privacy and respecting the law has got to be a new low for the American Dictator.

    Data surveillance is an acceptable measure if done within the law, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin told RT while visiting the channel in the capital.

    “Such methods are in demand. But you can’t just listen to the phone call in Russia; you need a special order from court. This is how this should be done in civilized society while tackling terrorism with the use of any technical means. If it is in the framework of the law, then it’s ok. If not it is unacceptable,” Putin said answering the question of RT’s Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan. Commenting on Obama’s statement that “You can’t have 100 per cent security and 100 per cent privacy,” Putin disagreed, saying it is possible if done within the law.

    Russia said it could consider the possibility of granting political asylum to 29-year-old Edward Snowden, if such request is made.

    Too damn funny.
    It's about time somebody outside the USA did this.
    I wonder what the Chinese president told our baby killing bitch the other day.
    Probably something like, Mr. President, you are taking the communist thing a little too far.

    The evil Putin is doing the same thing, but, of course, he saw the chance to take a swipe at the USA.

    It's pretty bad when having a leader like Putin would be an improvement over the uh..."leader" we have now.

    Does Putin disrespect Obama so, because Obama is weak or do you think Obama lied to him?

    He and Pravda rarely ever disrespected Bush in public like this.

    Mr Putin should be put in pudding; he was the one that called a bear market a failure of capitalism.:D

    It sounds like a ''cooling scam remark'' simply to trick Mr Ed Snowman to live in Siberia:cool: Lets see if mr Ed Snowden is fooled by that false Putin ad/snow job.:cool:
