In a letter sent to the Russian ambassador the U.S., Senator Lindsey Graham asks that Edward Snowden be turned over to American authorities. 

"The Snowden case is an important test of the 'reset' in relations between our two countries. Mr. Snowden's own statements have made clear his guilt. If our two nations are to have a constructive relationship moving forward, Russian cooperation in this matter is essential," writes Graham.

"If Mr. Snowden is still on Russian territory, I urge your government to apprehend him and turn him over the United States authorities immediately."
