White House 'Extremely Disappointed' With Snowden Asylum

"We are extremely disappointed that the Russian government would take this step despite our very clear and lawful requests in public and in private to have Mr. Snowden expelled to the United States to face the charges against him. Mr. Snowden is not a whistleblower. He is accused of leaking classified information and has been charged with three felony counts and he should be returned to the United States as soon as possible where he will accorded full due process and protections. This move by the Russian government undermines a longstanding record of law enforcement cooperation, a cooperation that has been on the upswing since the Boston Marathon bombings."
