8.'Violation of Sovereignty': Moscow Slams Obama Decision to Send 250 More US Troops to Syria
We've already discussed the general immaturity and petty nature of President Obama's decision to cancel his planned summit with Vladimir Putin over granting Ed Snowden asylum. Glenn Greenwald is now pointing out that beyond just being petty, it also shows astounding hypocrisy by the Obama administration. Various members of the administration (along with Congress) have been acting like it's the worst offense in the world that Russia -- with whom we do not have an extradition treaty -- turned down the request for extradition. Yet, as Greenwald highlights, the US quite frequently turns down these requests, and they don't turn into massive international incidents that top the headlines like this story.
