Edward Snowden

Obama Unhappy with How China Handled Snowden

Why won't everybody just do whatever his administration asks?


President Obama on Thursday criticized China's conduct in the case of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden during a meeting with China's special representatives to the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue.

According to a readout of the  meeting at the White House, the president "expressed his disappointment and concern with China's handling of the Snowden case" to Vice Premier Wang Yang and State Councilor Yang Jiechi, who are in Washington for high-level talks between the two countries.
