Snowden: Won't return to US for an unfair trial
Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden says there is no way he can come home to a fair trial under current US law.

 

In an online chat Thursday, Snowden said returning would be the best resolution. But Snowden said he can't return because he wouldn't be allowed to argue at trial that he acted in the public interest when he revealed the National Security Agency's mass surveillance programs. Snowden says Congress should strengthen legal protections to cover all whistle-blowers. (AP)
