Russia May Detain Snowden

If Obama thought dealing with Putin was next to impossible when Snowden was merely hiding in the no man's land of the Sheremetyevo transit zone (see "U.S. steps up pressure on Russia as Snowden stays free") he is about to really lose his grip now that the former KGB spy appears set to "debrief" the very much current NSA whistleblower, and in the process learn as much as possible about US secret spy operations on whose receiving end, for countless years, has been none other than Putin's Russia. Pushkin poetic justice.

[Yet another case where ZH reader comments are as good (or better!) than the story. In this case, they're a must-read. - c]
