NSA leaker Edward Snowden announced from Russia Tuesday that he's willing to return to the U.S. if he's guaranteed a fair trial. He's homesick. Ed Snowden was allowed to stay in Russia only after he agreed to pose for a picture with a shirtless Vladimir Putin, who held him upside down like a big fish.

North Korea's dictator Kim Jung Un addressed his military officers Thursday and ordered them to prepare for an all-out war with the U.S. He's such a baby.

National Intelligence Director James Clapper last week warned Congress the U.S. is in imminent danger of attack. The next day Secretary of State John Kerry said that we've never been safer. When asked if the administration was sending out mixed messages, a White House spokesman said yes and no.
