Is diverting a plane carrying a sovereign nation's leader against the law?

I cannot believe that out of all that has happened concerning Snowden since this whole debacle began, that I personally view China and Russia - of all countries - to be 'the good guys' in all of this; the behavior of the United States government at large on the international stage has only been a shade above reprehensible in their pursuit of Snowden. I couldn't fathom thinking this way five years ago.
And this is just the stuff we're seeing on the news; could you even imagine what's going on behind the scenes?

They haven't forced them to land as such - they've just said they can't take the route they were planning on until they know Snowden's not on board. But no - I definitely cannot imagine any country daring to do this with Airforce One - that is unimaginable.
its apparently illegal to tell the world about something that is illegal, so glad I don't have any kids, this world is a joke
