Yep and Snowden should have went to Iceland early and forgot about it. He may be a smart guy but needs to bone up on international relations a bit, in real time ect. Russia and China really don't want this with a ten foot pole attached and wouldn't want it and didn't want it.
Iceland seems to be the only nation on earth that had genuine apoplexy about the recent global screw over. Their offer was real. Heck they tossed some bankers in jail up there.

...Russia would not hand former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden over to the United States but that if Snowden wants to stay in Russia he "must stop his work aimed at harming our American partners".
Oh wait , wait for it, I will be right back,

The NSA spying thing IS a big deal. And there is much more information to come.
If this was as simple as confirmation of suspicions, it would be left at that.
What they want, the reason they NEED to get Snowden is because they are afraid of what comes next. *cough (revelations that the NSA is using the data to blackmail judges, lawyers, politicians) cough*
