    This is bad news for Snowden. Holder's statement is a diplomatic broadside. I would imagine this came after productive talks between the chattering class in Washington and Moscow, and has more to do with providing Putin cover for when he makes the inevitable decision to hand Snowden over.

    Snowden can't get to South America and Putin doesn't want him anymore, because what started as joke is quickly threatening relations. Snowden overestimated his host's patience, and when he announced that he planned to settle down there, I think Moscow stopped smiling.

    Shouldn't be too much longer, and he'll be coming home.

    I've seen some hardboiled eggs in my time, but you're about twenty minutes
