Is NSA leaker Edward Snowden safe in Russia?
One Op-ed writer says he should watch his back.
....Mr. Snowden—may I call you Ed? Yes, the U.S. and Russia have been at odds these past few years; in fact, now things are getting particularly sticky with President Obama canceling his planned meeting in Moscow with President Putin. The White House cited the Kremlin granting asylum to you as a factor in the decision. Moscow may be glad that the Americans are so angry, but one day the relationship will once again thaw. That's when the Kremlin may consider any loose ends that could be taken care of in the name of "better relations," or even a "reset."
My advice, Ed Snowden, is beware of Russians bearing gifts of asylum.

On Tuesday, CNN learned about a conference call of sorts between al Qaeda leaders.
According to The Daily Beast, the call was intercepted, prompting an unprecedented terror alert, closing nearly two dozen U.S. embassies.
The idea of a conference call between al Qaeda leaders sounded a bit odd to us - it flies in the face of everything we know about the way the terror groups operate.
Erin Burnett spoke with the reporter who broke that story, and he clarified it a bit for us.
"I would say it is not a telephone conference call in that sense. It was a kind of remote conference where people are in. It is something like a teleconference."
So we wanted to do a bit more digging and figure out how al Qaeda really does communicate.
