White House to Russia: Snowden Not a Human Rights Activist or Dissident

In Washington, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney renewed the administration’s demand for Snowden’s extradition. Carney said Snowden is neither an activist nor a dissident.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: “Our position is that Mr. Snowden ought to be expelled and returned to the United States and that he should not be allowed to engage in further international travel, except as necessary to return to the United States. You know, he is not a human rights activist. He is not a dissident. He’s accused of leaking classified information. He’s been charged with three felony counts related to the leaking of classified information. And for those reasons, he should be returned to the United States.”
