Edward Snowden's father has the appropriate paper work filed for a quick vacation to visit his son on the beautiful sunny Moscow shores, where he'll tell his leaker son to stay put. Or at least to never come home. Lon Snowden announced his travel plans with his attorney, Bruce Fein, Sunday morning on ABC's This Week. Fein said there are no firm plans for the elder Snowden to visit his son yet, but he'll have arrangements made "very soon." But the Snowden patriarch made perhaps the biggest wave when he said he'll advise his son to stay away from the U.S. for a while. "I’m not open to it, and that’s what I’ll share with my son in terms of a plea deal," Lon Snowden said, when asked if he'll tell his son to return home. But Snowden said the only was he'll support his son's return is if he's guaranteed a fair trial. "As a father I want my son to come home if I believe that the justice system … is going to be applied correctly," he said.
Sen. John McCain revealed he wants the President to do much more than cancel his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his appearance on Fox News Sunday. He said it was "fine" that Obama cancelled the meeting, but more measures must be taken according to the Arizona Republican. "The president comparing him to a kid in the back of the classroom, I think, is very indicative of the president’s lack of appreciation of who Vladimir Putin is," McCain said. "He’s an old KGB colonel that has no illusions about our relationship, does not care about a relationship with the United States, continues to oppress his people, continues to oppress the media and continues to act in an autocratic and unhelpful fashion." McCain suggested the U.S. take a harsher stance supporting things Russia opposes beyond this "symbolic" gesture from the President, like expanding the Magnitsky Act, a bill passed last year to enforce more human rights in Russia. McCain also suggested helping Georgia join NATO and expanding defense systems in Russia. "We also need very badly to understand that Mr. Putin does not have the United States-Russia relationships in any priority and treat him in a realistic fashion," McCain said. "That’s the way to treat Mr. Putin, not just cancelling a meeting."
