The United States is seeking clarification from Russian authorities about any changes to the status of former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden, White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Edward Snowden may be settling in for a long stay in Russia, his lawyer indicated, saying the National Security Agency leaker plans to start studying the Russian language and culture and that, for the time being, Russia is his final destination. Edward Snowden might soon be allowed to leave the so-called "sterile zone" in Russia's Sheremetyevo airport, according to reports out of the country. Russia's Federal Migration Service has issued a document, through a lawyer, saying that the U.S. intelligence leaker will be allowed to leave the airport in which he's holed up while he awaits asylum. less
