Russia Responds To Obama Snub: “We Are Disappointed… But The Snowden Situation Wasn’t Created By Us”

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Earlier we reported that in an act of embarrassing political ineptitude not to mention detente reminiscent of the Cold War’s worst days, the US president did his best Freudian transference attempt today by blaming Putin for his ever escalating headaches caused by one 30 year old NSA whistleblower, and cancelling bilateral talks with the Russian president. And can anyone blame him: with the US increasingly slighted by both superascedent eastern powers, Russia and China, the US finds itself in a position in which it has never been – where foreign nations get to simply say “no.” Here is what else Russia is saying in the aftermath of Obama’s childish response.  

From BBC:

The Kremlin says it is “disappointed” the US cancelled bilateral talks in September, after Russia granted asylum to intelligence leaker Edward Snowden.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s foreign affairs adviser said the move showed the US could not develop ties with Russia on an “equal basis”.

Russian foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov said on Wednesday Russia was not to blame over the Snowden affair.

This decision is clearly linked to the situation with former agent of US special services [Edward] Snowden, which hasn’t been created by us,” he said during a phone conference with the press.

“For many years, the Americans have avoided signing an extradition agreement,” Mr Ushakov said, “And they have invariably responded negatively to our requests for extradition of people who committed crimes on the territory of Russia, pointing at the absence of such agreement.”

But he added the invitation for the bilateral summit was still open.

“Russian representatives are ready to continue working together with American partners on all key issues on the bilateral and multilateral agenda,” Mr Ushakov said.

It’s sad when Russia makes more sense than the American president. And speaking of the American president, here is his official stance for the reason he escalated:

The decision to cancel the US-Russia summit comes the day after Mr Obama appeared on an evening chat show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in which he condemned a newly enacted anti-gay law in Russia.

“I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them,” Mr Obama said.

So… it’s all about the homosexuals?

Then again, as always happens in politics, it is likely all just for show…

  1. After the last visit the body language between the two was quite obvious and whatever Obama wanted didn’t go over very big. Look at Putins face why they didnt even shake hands when they got up (never happens). I think Obama is using the Snowden excuse to avoid another negative confrontation again. I mean how many times do you allow snub?

  2. If he was a real threat they’d kill him, but they need him alive to make more headlines to inspire distracting debates.

    The few people in this country who do discuss politics, as all Americans should, are usually stuck on issues that aren’t really issues.

  3. I am respecting President Putin even more, every time he makes a statement he exposes the insanity of Hillary, Obama, and, McCain(the PTSD Poster Child) who has no business in government functions. I am an American, first and foremost. But, when a leader from another country makes much more sense than………………………………………….

  4. It’s all scripted. It’s like watching a really bad movie except it’s “reality.” The Govt’s need to hire some new writers.

      1. Actually tom I’m dead set against a new government. The less govt the better. If We the People could get rid of governments world wide….We the People would be way better off and a whole lot happier. Unfortunately, that’s probably not going to happen. But it’s a dream I have……

        1. I agree that government works best when it works the least, but, we have buttholes that can’t pour water out of a boot if the instructions are on the bottom heal. Professional “politicians” are the scourge of the landscape. Especially, the ones that have no allegiance to any one territory. Duel citizens have no business in politics, PERIOD>

        2. Well Tammy count yourself as one of the truly small minority of people who know they can function using their own good though processes. If government is the answer to mans ill’s then the present state of government is woefully flawed. it is never the common people who call for war and destruction,in particular of people and countries who those being called to war could find on a world map if their very lives depended on it,which by the way they do. I don’t even want to talk about the horror that’s coming but come it will and it will only be those smart enough to use their wits who will escape it. Heaven help you all.

  5. Putin was probably relieved and grateful that the talks were cancelled, so he wouldn’t have to hang out with that POS.

  6. I hope Putin is the real deal. Probably just another episode of “Days of our Lives”, I’m sure. But if the slightest chance that he is standing against the NWO BS, that would be a huge ace up our sleeves.
