White House Urges Moscow to Expel Snowden to US
WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Barack Obama says the United States is following legal channels on how to bring National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden back to the U.S. He says the administration is working with other countries to make sure "the rule of law is observed."
Obama made his remark at the White House.
He was asked by a reporter if he had discussed Snowden's situation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Obama did not respond directly to that question.
Earlier, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the United States assumes Snowden is in Russia, where he fled after leaving Hong Kong. Carney said Snowden's departure from Hong Kong after the United States requested his extradition damaged U.S.-China relations.

AP reported Snowden apparently booked a flight to Cuba, but was not in his seat on the plane when it took off Monday afternoon from Moscow.
