U.S. makes another attempt to extradite Edward Snowden

The United States has promised Russia that it will not torture or kill accused NSA leaker Edward Snowden, in it’s latest effort to have him extradited to the United States.

Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to Russian officials Tuesday saying the criminal charges Snowden faces are not punishable by the death penalty.
Snowden filed a request for asylum in Russia earlier this month, reportedly claiming he would be tortured or killed by the U.S. government.
Russian leaders say they are still working with the FBI on the case, but they added they have never extradited anyone, and they never will.
