Furious White House Blasts Russian Asylum For Snowden

  Carney appeared to add a threat, as the WSJ reports, he added that the Russian decision undermines law-enforcement cooperation between Moscow and Washington. Russia's decision also threatens to derail a planned September summit in Moscow between Obama and Putin (oh to be a fly on that wall), as Carney advised "we are evaluating the utility of a summit in light of this." Snowden's earlier comments that "over the past eight weeks we have seen the Obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law, but in the end the law is winning," did not help, adding that he thanks "the Russian Federation for granting  asylum in accordance with its laws and international obligations." US politicians see it a little differently, U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-A.Z.) called the move "a disgrace and a deliberate effort to embarrass the United States." Seems they are managing that all on their own.

There are probably a number of movies that portray how we-the-people will never truly know what's going on behind the scenes between the U.S., Russia and China. If you can find it, watch the 1970 movie "The Kremlin Letters" with Richard Boone and Orson Welles.

In the movie itself, there is too much happening without enough "lead" explanation, thereby making it a little difficult to follow in some areas.  Yet, it has enough going for it that it becomes very realistic in today's world where WE don't know what is going on behind the scenes.

Like today, individual agents and operators have their own agendas, besides working for governments. Of course, being a 1970 movie, a lot of the communications that we have nowadays wasn't available back then. But the surprise ending makes it worthwhile watching anyway... in my opinion.

Wikipedia says, "... a faithful adaptation of the novel by Noel Behn, who had worked for the United States Army's Counterintelligence Corps." If you are intending to find and watch it, don't read the Wikipedia article on it at - at least not the last half - or you will lose a lot of the excitement, knowing the outcome ahead of time.

Who cares what McCain thinks or says. He needs to look back on the treason and crimes he has committed against his own. The BS continues to fly.
