Obama Says ‘Significant Vulnerability’ At NSA

Obama said he had not called either Chinese President Xi Jinping or Russian President Vladimir Putin to request Snowden’s extradition. The president said he “should not have to” and the extradition request should be dealt with through “regular legal channels.”

“No, I am not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker,” said Obama.
