A lawyer advising National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden said Wednesday Snowden's asylum status has not been resolved and that he is going to stay at the Moscow airport for now.

There were reports earlier today that NSA leaker Edward Snowden was preparing to leave the airport transit area where he has apparently been holed up for the last month. Right now it appears he, contrary to previous reports, doesn't have the paperwork to leave the airport and enter Russia.

Meanwhile, the US House of Representatives is preparing for a vote that would limit the National Security Agency's domestic spying program.
