U.S. Trying 'Appropriate Legal Channels' To Nab Snowden, Says Obama

The administration has a loose definition of "legal"


WASHINGTON—President Obama said Monday that "we're following all the appropriate legal channels" to return Edward Snowden to the United States from Russia.

Obama said his aides are working with other countries—which he did not identify—to make sure "the rule of law" is observed in the Snowden case.

The president, who answered reporters' questions before meeting with business leaders about an immigration bill, declined to comment further.
