Return NSA leaker Edward Snowden to the U.S. for trial [Letter]

National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, a former Baltimore area resident, should be returned to the U.S. from Russia by force if necessary ("How can President Obama defend NSA spying on U.S. citizens?" Jan. 5).

In 1953, the government hired professional bounty hunters to find and return a high-profile couple after they were discovered hiding in Mexico. Both were given hefty prison sentences.

President Obama ought to work on ways to return Mr. Snowden using whatever means are necessary.

John M. Davis
