    Putin is playing the nice guy and making Obama look the fool again. Putin even said Snowden has to stop leaking American secrets as a condition of staying in Russia. LOL.

    President Vladimir Putin suggested Monday that American fugitive Edward Snowden might be allowed to stay in Russia, and said the Russians would never turn Snowden over to the United States.

    “If he wants to go somewhere and somebody will host him – no problem,” Putin said in televised remarks during a news conference in Moscow. "If he wants to stay here, there is one condition: He must stop his work aimed at harming our American partners.”

    It appears, the Russian president added, that Snowden has no such intention. “So he must choose for himself a country to stay in and move there,” he said. “Unfortunately, I don’t know when this will happen. If I knew I would tell you now.”
