Is Snowden safe in Russia? Filmmaker has stern warning for NSA Leaker

Is NSA leaker Edward Snowden safe in Russia?

One Op-ed writer says he should watch his back.

Robert Stone: Beware the Curse of Asylum in Russia

....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.

CNN's Susan Candiotti is OutFront with the story.

    I don't think Snowden has to worry abut Russian treachery here, That would be political dynamite for the Russian government, and politicians in the US will soon lose interest anyway. Besides, the meeting of the US and Russians defense and foreign ministers in Washington on Friday went well, in contrast to the bluster which had been emanating from there for the past several weeks.
