  •  Good point. Is anyone paying attention? (5+ / 0-)

    When trying to understand what Russia is saying, go to their state media as Deep Harm has done. When Reuters reports it, they put their own spin on what it means.

    I was especially intrigued by this comment from RT:

    He [Putin] said Snowden should choose his final destination and go there. Putin added that he has no idea when that is going to happen.
    Putin is saying that Snowden has deliberately stayed in Moscow. Since he is calling on Snowden to stop giving out releases as a condition of staying, he is in effect telling Snowden that this part of his journey is over. He has to head to his next port of call.

    Anyone who is crowing over this does not understand what is going on.
