Can Snowden's Dad Convince Him to Come Home?

Hosted by

After nine days out of view, presumably at the Moscow airport, Edward Snowden may be running out of options. The New York Times reports that eight countries have rejected requests for sanctuary, with only Venezuela and Bolivia offering any hope, and Russia says he's withdrawn his application to stay there. Snowden is charged with violations of espionage law for leaking classified NSA information about vast global surveillance by US intelligence agencies. His father has had no direct contact since his son fled to Hong Kong and Moscow. On Lonnie Snowden's behalf, attorney Bruce Fein, who served in the Justice Department during the Reagan Administration, has approached the Obama Administration.
