Condoleezza Rice: Russia Slapped U.S. in Face With Edward Snowden Asylum

Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice says President Obama was absolutely right to cancel one-on-one meeting the Russia President Vladimir Putin after fugitive NSA leaker Edward Snowden was granted temporary asylum.

Politico:  “The president is absolutely right not to go to Moscow for a bilateral conversation with Putin. There’s nothing to talk to about,” Rice, an expert in Russia, told Charlie Rose in an interview aired on “CBS This Morning.” “The slap in the face to the United States of America of giving asylum to Edward Snowden, the president absolutely cannot go to a bilateral conversation with Putin.”

Saying that the U.S. has few “overlapping interests” with Russia left, the former Bush administration official said it’s time to reevaluate dealing with the country.
