Today Target and Home Depot announced they're cutting ties with celebrity chef Paula Deen over the N-word controversy.

Obama covers his bases on Snowden: Not going to scramble the jets, but concerned

While Pres. Obama is concerned about what secrets NSA leaker Edward Snowden may yet to spill, the president said Thursday that he won't take extraordinary steps to capture him.

10 best boltholes: where on Earth could Snowden go next?

"I'm not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker," he told reporters during a news conference in Senegal, his first stop on a tour of several African nations.

In the very same speech he also said seemed  to be worried about Snowden leaking other secrets.

"I continue to be concerned about the other documents that he may have. That's part of the reason why we'd like to have Mr. Snowden in custody," Obama said.

So which is it? Do you want him in custody, but you don't really want to go after him? He's just some hacker, but he's got some big secrets?
