Ecuador considering Snowden asylum

NSA leaker Edward Snowden has become a global hot potato.

Nobody really wants him.

But the U.S. still can't seem to get a grip on him.

As far as we know, the Snowden is still hiding out in the Moscow airport - in the transit area, between arrival gates and passport checkpoints.

But Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he wants Snowden to go sooner rather than later.

Ecuador said it would consider Snowden's request for asylum, but so far, no decision there. And a Spanish lawyer who has been working with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange - who's currently aiding Snowden - said he doesn't want to add Snowden to his client roster.

So who's going to help Snowden?
