MOSCOW (AP) -- Four former U.S. government officials who have met with former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden say he is settling into life in Russia and expresses no regrets about leaking highly classified information.
The four were the first Americans known to have met with Snowden since he was granted asylum in Russia in August. They spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday, a day after meeting with Snowden at a secret location.
One of them, former NSA executive Thomas Drake, says he believes that Snowden "is making the best of his circumstances and is living as normally as possible."
Also Thursday, Snowden's father, Lon, arrived in Moscow to see his son.
