The White House is confirming that CIA Director John Brennan was in the Ukrainian capital over the weekend. White House press secretary Jay Carney confirmed Russian media reports of the trip to Kiev. Carney says Brennan's visit was part of a trip to Europe.
Ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is accusing the CIA of being behind the new government's decision to turn to force. But the CIA denies that Brennan encouraged Ukrainian authorities to conduct tactical operations.

Are the Obamunists so naive as to think that the Russians wouldn't know the CIA director was in-country? This isn't Libya or Egypt they are dealing with.
Excellent example of your spin: should the US have informed Russia of the trip in advance? Why should it, unless, Russia thinks Ukraine is its territory?
Noting the OBVIOUS is “spin” now?? Go back to KOS, will ya? Ya’ bug me, boy...
1) A complete surrender to Russia.
2) The introduction of an Islam seat at the governing table of Ukraine.
Refuse those two options and no $20 billion.
Is that why the Director of the CIA has a secret identity?
Oh wait, he's a public official - whose name and face are known to anyone who wants to check.
This site used to have posters who took a critical view of news reports, especially reports from agenices owned directly by hostile foreign governments.
Exactly, I am sure the Putinistas here are outraged about this CIA encroachment on soon to be Russian territory.
It’s not “secret” unless the Russians say it is, comrade. This guy probably flew a U.S. government jet.
The White House on Monday said President Barack Obama would speak to Russian President Vladimir Putin soon, perhaps later in the day, and made clear the United States was not considering lethal aid for Ukraine.
So supporting America and its allies means you’re from “KOS”, but carrying water as a pathetic lickspittle for a tinpot KGB dictator is . . . what? Patriotic?
Believe nothing. Nothing is true. Except for Russian “reports” that the trip was “secret.”
“This site used to have posters who took a critical view of news reports, especially reports from agenices owned directly by hostile foreign governments.”
NEWSER and Associated Press are owned by foreign governments?
Hey now, some of us remember the Great Patriotic War.
I had assumed you weren't that stupid.
Which sources were Newser and AP quoting, exactly?
Would it be RT?
Unless those MREs they're sending contain burritos.
Note how it works with these guys. Somebody confirms the trip, therefore the Russian account that it was “secret” is true.
“Which sources were Newser and AP quoting, exactly?”
Jay Carney and the White House.
It might help if you READ, instead of kneejerk react, doncha think?
Are you personally offended that the US didn’t clear the trip with Russia first?
Oh, so Jay Carney and the White House said that it was a secret trip?
Is that where that "fact" came from?
Try again, Komsomol wannabe.
All of your ID’s show up at exactly the same time, every time, with nothing to add to a discussion but insults and obsfuscation of anything that doesn’t meet the approved Svoboda/Right Sector line.
Stop trolling and try thinking for a change, kid.
So anyone who doesn’t take sides with the pedophile paradise of Russia is a nazi? Lol
The Nazi’s were the one’s throwing firebombs at the police at Maidan, remember??
Or were those pics on the Euromaidan PR at the time all Russian propaganda, as well?
I wonder if the CIA Chief will bring back The spokes hole some nice trinkets and such back
They make up less than. 8% of voters too, remember that? Trying to brand them all is ludicrous
“Facts” are “insults” to Russians, that much is true. But in the interest of full disclosure, I am working a temporary assignment on the behalf of George Soros, for the neo-Nazi wing of Monsanto.
Good for you, every troll needs a job.
As long as I’m not paid in rubles, I’m cool with it.
He dedicating a mosque? (remember he’s a moslem) or just coordinating with right sector/svboda that seized the defense and internal security posts?
Ukrainians are not invading their neighbors. The only people doing that are Putin’s no insignia fag army. You are doing good work here, comrade.
“Hey now, some of us remember the Great Patriotic War.”
Oh yeah, that was way back when the German leaders decided that controlling Ukraine would be the best way to ensure Germanys future. Say,, you know,,,,,,, oh nevermind.
The fact that the Russians seem to know where our DCI is before people at the CIA do is SOOOOO typical Obama.
Can’t find a modern day Ben Franklin???
It’s hard not to wonder why the director of the CIA couldn’t have phoned the Ukraine president with whatever he had to say to him, instead of taking a secret trip to Kiev, which he should have known the KGB would soon uncover and publicize.
What a coup for Russian intelligence: Outing the U.S.’s director of intelligence in the middle of a clandestine journey.
We look so bad. But whatever the CIA director was doing in Kiev it must have been important. For example, finalizing an agreement for Ukraine to allow referendums in its Russian-speaking areas in exchange for billions of U.S. dollars and the assurance that Russia will not invade Ukraine, at least as long as the referendums are in favor of the areas joining with Russia.
“But whatever the CIA director was doing in Kiev it must have been important. For example, finalizing an agreement for Ukraine....”
Russian Media was reporting that he had encouraged the Kiev coup government to attack Russian protesters in the East, as a show that the gov could control it.
But yours is the more plausible scenario.
Calling these people 'Nazis' would tend to support the argument that you're parroting Russian propaganda.
Are they actual members of the National Socialist German Worker's Party? No.
Therefore the people at the Maidan, whoever they were, are not Nazis.
“Calling these people ‘Nazis’ would tend to support the argument that you’re parroting Russian propaganda.”
So, the Nazi symbol as their calling card, and all of the other stuff, is just coinky-dink, right?
Yes, they are.
Some top Ukrainian Special Ops guys got wiped out yesterday. Russia has deep level spies in that country, probably people near the head of government even now.
Not. Good. Obammy caught with his hand in the Ukraine. Putin will act the victim and make US look worse.
I go for #2. He has been a converted Muslim for years and started his USA backstabbing under Bush1 as I recall who want close relationship with Muslims especially Saudi Arabia.
Damn sure you'd better "nevermind." Or learn about Molotov-Ribbentrop. Your choice.
Don’t show it to our Russian friends, they are humorless, and beset by Nazis.
What allies do we have in Ukraine? Some crooks who want money from us?
I got news for you, America has very few real allies in this world.
