Snowden Still Stuck in Moscow

"Edward Snowden seems to be stranded," the Washington Post reports.

"Three weeks after Snowden revealed himself as the source of leaked top-secret documents on U.S. intelligence gathering, the former intelligence contractor is stuck in legal limbo in Russia. Although he has not been seen publicly in days, he is thought to be inside a transit area of a Moscow airport."

"On Sunday, two of his strongest supporters -- Julian Assange of WikiLeaks and President Rafael Correa of Ecuador -- said it was unlikely that Snowden would leave there anytime soon."

The Wall Street Journal notes Snowden's "decision to go to Russia is looking riskier than it first appeared, and may have left him in a worse situation than if he had stayed in Hong Kong."
