#1 I'm guessing Snowden is not a real happy camper right now. Further, after the FSB has pumped every drop out of him, what are the odds Vlad sells him out for something else of value, or someone, and we get the ugly mess of the trial back here anyway, after all the possible damage that could be done has been done to our collection systems. For Vlad, a twofer......

#6 2/3 odds on Viktor.

Next most likely: diluting/gutting the Magnitsky Act.

#7 Bout/Snowden's a fair trade. Perhaps even to our advantage.

The deterrent effect of throwing Snowden in prison for fifty years is a lot more valuable to us than curtailing arms sales in Africa.
