White House criticizes Snowden's choice of 'protectors'

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Monday that the countries in which former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden had chosen to seek protection belied his claim that he was focused on supporting transparency, freedom of the press and individuals' rights.

"If his passion here is for press freedom and freedom of the Internet and the like, he has chosen unlikely protectors," Carney told a White House briefing.
