The station chief is “declared to liaison” PM arrival in country. It is no surprise. The COS spends a lot of time hobnobbing with embassy and local big shots.
Why would the CIA spy on the Germans?
A better target would be terrorists and the muslim countries that support them.
I think Messi is going to break out on Sunday. I spent three years in Argentina in the late 80s, during the reign of Maradona. I think that the Germans will be in for a surprise. I just hope we don’t get stuck with a 0-0 draw at full time and have another WC final decided by penalties.
