Yup, like bad Soviet propaganda. He’ll end up in Iceland.
Standard tradecraft red herring stuff. Putin will see him safely on a jet to Iceland that is full of his operatives. The CIA won’t get near that airplane.
That’s why he went to Hong Kong instead of to Japan or Europe or South America. Anywhere the CIA has a fairly free hand, he would have been rolled up in a carpet and carried out to a waiting van on Day One.
This boy may be many things, but stupid he ain’t.
I don’t think there are any direct flights from Moscow to Iceland. They are all via somewhere else like Norway, UK, Denmark..
