|Armed and Dangerous Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein|
Sen. Dianne Feinstein told Bob Bob Schieffer on Sunday's "Face the Nation, that "the Chase is on" after National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden skipped out of Hong Kong and reportedly arrived in Moscow early Sunday morning.
"I want to get him caught and brought back for trial, and I think we need to know exactly what he has - he could have a lot, lot more," she said. "But I think the chase is on."Could Mrs. Feinstein be nervous that Snowden will blow the lid off the NSA scandal and implicate the Intelligence Committee members?
Latest reports say Snowden could be headed for Ecuador .

The United States "doesn't know what happened," CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett explained, having crafted under the extradition treaty charges that would be applicable in Hong Kong. "It put together what it said and thought were really good charges that represented everything we could legally prosecute Edward Snowden under," Garrett said, "thought there was an agreement with the Hong Kong authorities.
"...It looks like there was a technicality," he continued. "There was a lack of an Interpol warrant in addition to the charges rendered by the United States government, and that might have created a seam, a very small seam in which the Hong Kong authorities allowed themselves to let Edward Snowden out of there. It is also the belief within the administration that Hong Kong was getting weary of the saga and would prefer Edward Snowden to get out. He's gotten out, and he's now somebody else's problem - mainly the United States'.Looks looks like the Chinese and Vald Putin may have both just given Barack Obama and his Orwellian spooks a great big ol' Middle Finger.
