Moscow, Russia - Accused NSA leaker Edward Snowden may be running out of options, as countries deny his requests for asylum.
Snowden spent his tenth day hiding in the Moscow airport, unable to travel to another country.
In an open letter to his son on Tuesday, Snowden's father said, "You are a modern-day Paul Revere summoning the American people to confront the growing danger of tyranny."
Snowden has applied for asylum in 21 nations. Three have given an outright no. His latest chance may now be Venezuela.
Before meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro defended Snowden. According to Russian news reports, the Venezuelan said Snowden told quote "a
great truth in an effort to prevent wars. he deserves protection under international and humanitarian law."
The United States government disagrees. Snowden's passport has been revoked, and he's wanted for charges of espionage.
"We have been very clear - he should be returned here and would be tried under the allegations," said State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki.
