DAKAR, Senegal (AP) - President Barack Obama says he won't engage in wheeling, dealing and trading to get NSA leaker Edward Snowden extradited to the U.S.

Obama says he also won't be scrambling military jets to go after a 29-year-old hacker, rejecting suggestions the U.S. might send the Air Force to force down a plane carrying Snowden from Russia to another country.

Obama says he hasn't personally called the leaders of Russia or of China. He says he shouldn't have to. He says expelling a criminal is something that should be dealt with through routine legal channels.
Obama says the fact Snowden obtained the secret documents shows significant vulnerabilities at the National Security Agency. He says the damage that's been done is that NSA programs to obtain phone and Internet records have been exposed.
