Well, no. Made you look though, and there is some actual news behind the catchy misleading headline. According to the New York Times, Edward Snowden last summer retained attorney Plato Cacheris, a prominent expert in Espionage Act law, to investigate the possibility of reaching a plea agreement that might allow Snowden to return home without facing the likelihood of lengthy prison time. Cacharis has previously defended Aldrich Ames and Lawrence Franklin, among many others.
Apparently these negotiations went nowhere, despite Eric Holder's claim earlier this year that the Justice Department would indeed be open to a plea agreement in Snowden's case. Snowden himself has repeatedly made it clear that he would like to come home. If, as now seems to be the case, both sides think a plea is worth exploring, one can't help but wonder why Cacheris' negotiations died aborning.
