Russia NSA Surveillance
In this image made from video provided by RTR TV on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, a document purportedly written by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden reads, "To: Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation, From: Edward Joseph Snowden, United States citizen APPLICATION I hereby request you considering the possibility of granting to me temporary asylum in the Russian Federation. 15 July 2013". Snowden has applied for temporary asylum in Russia three weeks after arriving at a Moscow airport from Hong Kong. The United States wants him sent home to face prosecution for espionage.
