Anna Chapman: Was Russian Spy Trying To Seduce An Obama Cabinet Member?
International Business Times ^ | April 3, 2012 | Daniel Tovrov:

A female Russian spy -- possibly flame-haired media darling Anna Chapman -- was close to seducing a member of U.S. President Barack Obama's cabinet in 2010, the assistant director of the FBI for counterintelligence revealed in a recent interview with British television.

Frank Figliuzzi said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been tracking a 10-person Russian spy ring for years but had to act sooner than planned because the female agent was getting close to drawing a U.S. official into a "honey trap."

The individual "got closer and closer to higher and higher ranking leadership. She got close enough to disturb us," Figliuzzi said in a segment that aired Monday of "Modern Spies," a documentary series on the BBC Two channel in Britain.

Chapman was arrested along with nine other suspected spies in June 2010, and although Figliuzzi didn't identify the U.S. official or the Russian operative in question, the BBC assumed he was talking about Chapman, who has drawn sporadic media attention in the United States and Russia since the arrests.

But Obama has already been seduced by Medvedev and Putin!

And this story is supposed to be the cover for it? Seems to be the case. I don’t know what else to conclude.

I read somewhere that it was not Chapman. It was another female Russian, Cynthia....something.

I volunteer to defend Secretary Napolitano from this terrible threat. I will hurl myself in front of her and willingly bear the brunt of Ms. Chapman's lasciviousness for as long as is humanly possible necessary.

Thank you for observing the rules. I have quite a spy crush on her. The pictures posted aren’t even the best available.

She must really be stupid!

All anyone on that side has to do is ask, and half the Obama Administration would consider it an honor to assist Mother Russia.

She was obviously looking for secrets in the wrong place; I’d have told her anything she wanted to know.

Heck, I’d have sung it for her a capella.

Biden joked, “Let me be clear. It was not my idea to send her back.”
