Skip to comments.Moscow-US Spy Swap Could Happen Today (Say What?)
Posted on 07/08/2010 12:45:56 AM PDT by quesney
A Cold War-style spy swap for the alleged Russian agents was being hammered out last night.
All ten Russians held by the U.S. - including 'femme fatale' Anna Chapman - will reportedly be exchanged for ten prisoners being held in Russian jails who have spied for the West.
The swap could begin as early as today, with Britain playing a pivotal role.
Say what? Why so fast? Have we even had a chance to interrogate these people? Are they part of bigger spy networks? What's going on here?

Why are we trading newly captured spies who have new intel for spies of ours that Russia has had years to interrogate?
Just the same as always. Act like an idiot. Make excuses for it. Get distracted by the next big bombshell. Typical behavior for this amateur and childish group. The missing Bee Gee Gibb brother will make his er, er, er, er, um, um, um, ah, excuses tomorrow. No one will report on it. Mission accomplished.
Real comrades don’t let other comrades get interrogated or sentenced.
The Russians probably informed Obama that the spies stole a lot of valuable info from us. So he agreed. The spies we'll get in return probably know very little.
“The Russians probably informed Obama that the spies stole a lot of valuable info from us. So he agreed. The spies we’ll get in return probably know very little.”
Exactly. There should be at least a year to chase done all leads, while we scare these spies into thinking we may hold them forever. How does giving them away before doing that serve our interests. Rhetorical question: We all know by now that DC serves its own interests, not the country’s.
2. Obama is doing this because this way, he does not have to prosecute them, which he wouldn't want to do anyway, because I believe he sympathizes with the marxist cause.
I believe that they should serve their prison sentences before being expelled from the country. During their time, they are all interrogated by both the CIA and the FBI.
A Soros/Putin sitdown, with sock puppets.
I understand your comments and your logic but I have to think there is a certain “intelligence” etiquette that exists. In a high-profile case like this, it’s just how things might be done in the diplomatic/espionage world.
they’re caught. They’re highly exposed in this case. we are doing the same thing in Russia. so it’s mutually accepted to simply release the spies in exchange for people. done deal. Russia rebuilds it’s spy network here. life goes on.....
I bet the poor interpreter (not pictured fully, behind the Kenyan), did not get a single bite of lunch that day.
Yes, not to be overly suspicious, but who is really being protected here and who is being denied an opportunity to properly interrogate the spies and run down leads?
“Russia rebuilds its spy network here. life goes on.....”
How do we know the Russian spies that were caught were not pre-planned expendables to serve as a rabbit trail while the “real” spies keep on doing their thing?
We dare not interrogate them. We might damage their self esteem and threaten their fundamental dignity as human beings. /Holder.
I got your human dignity and self esteem right here, with my vise grips and waterboard.
I predicted this a couple of weeks ago.
"Let's swap spys and stop this before it leads to us."
just the commie giving the caught spies back to the commies
nothing new here
and you’ll see no outrage by republicans
we need to take our government back... i just have no idea how once 20m illegals are given their absentee ballots
This is to make sure the spies don’t talk........
//20m illegals are given their absentee ballots//
it does not look good does it.
who says they haven’t been interrogated? Some one probably knows a lot more of what’s going on than we do in this case.
Ping to #19 !!
Well we wouldn’t want to find out things like “who is ‘running’ Obama” now would we?
Bambi sure didn’t waste any time covering up this one. I had a suspicion he was going to do this, but even I’m surprised at how fast he has moved.
Since every aspect of Obama’s past is being hidden by someone, there are a lot of people he has repay.
what those spies know, what they did, who they compromised, asssociated with - our DOJ does not want to pursue
I’m sure Obama is thinking it’ll save us so much money in trials...
I think Obama is pissed that the FBI was running this operation at the same time he was setting the “reset” button with US-Soviet relations. I mean, he and Medvedev had hamburgers together for crying out loud, it’s almost a bromance.
So expect to see the Soviet spies swapped before we really find out what they really stole, and in about a month or so, expect to see the FBI special agent in charge of this transferred to Timbuktu.
The Clown Prince of Washington has got EVERYTHING under control. He’s GREAT at plugging leaks...
And after all, the DOJ wants to focus all their money and efforts stopping the real bad people, the Arizonans.
Likely the FBI brought the spies to light to get Obama to back off on his nuclear disarmament plans with Russia.
Obama is avid to get his disarmament plans thru so is neutering the spy story as quick as he can by making it a moral relativity issue (we have spies too), no doubt with input from Putin and Hillary Clinton.
Im surprised at how fast he has moved.
Just a bit faster than he handled the trifling matters or Afganistan and Deepwater Horizon, eh? Like watching a reptile. No movement except the nictating membranes for days, then:
LOL! Maybe he is a "V" after all...
in the world of espionage—you never ever know for sure.
Perhaps 1 of these “russians” was flipped by the CIA and will now be a double-agent back in Russia.
the CIA knows that Russia has plenty more spies here and plenty more on the way.
Well we wouldnt want to find out things like who is running Obama now would we?
That is the billion dollar question that scares me the most about Obama. Who REALLY is pulling his strings? he’s just a puppet.
