Snowden Says Obama Has Made Him a "Stateless Person"

Statement released on Wikileaks website

|

Edward Snowden, in his first public message since arriving at Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport eight days ago, has issued a statement accusing President Obama of deploying "the old, bad tools of political aggression" and "using citizenship as a weapon" in order to silence him. It describes the Obama administration as "afraid of an informed, angry public demanding the constitutional government it was promised — and it should be."

The message also accuses Vice President  Biden of pressuring foreign leaders to deny his extradition requests.
