Since when is it a secret that the Russians plant spies here? Since when is it a secret that we plant spies everywhere? When the catch them they should give them the boot as the damage is already done. If you imprison their guys, then they will imprison your guys. It is interesting how spying is considered justified if your are the United States, but it is a terrible act if you are Russia.
I don't even know why this is so controversial. Russian spies got caught in the US. Ok. Yes, we do it too, so do the Chinese and Israelis and every other country. And when the spies get caught, they're either deported, jailed, or executed. Again, why is this controversial at all?
" "Would you act like that in the 21st century?" he said in a reference to allegations that agents retrieved cash that had been buried in the ground years before."
Well, actually, now that you ask ... yes. Launder it long enough and it cleans itself from its source.Actually the whole thing is much ado about nothing. If they don't have spies corroborating that we aren't trying to cheat on nuclear arms deals, and other policy areas, it is not natural that they would just trust us. Why any surprise that the Spy v. Spy games go on all the time?
No big deal. Even our friendsdo it.
Yes, and an Israeli spy was imprisoned for 20 years.
This is just another example of how well "respected" we have become under the Obama presidency.
What I don't understand is why are they hiding their activties.
All they need to do is file a Freedom of Information request.
Spy, saboteur, terrorist, invader, moving freely within our borders, for their own agenda, not ours.
Better 'Red' than dead?
And that was just in the first two pages. But of course, the usual haters couldn't resist bringing Israel into it.
HOLD ON!!!! WHO IS OUR ENEMY HERE??? Russia is doing nothing but collecting policy positions that they can get over the Internet. How much of the technology Israel sells to China is purchased from and/or stolen from the US?
Israel was spying as a partner in the development of the F-35, Israeli passed secret information to the Chinese causing an arms deal crisis. In 2005, issues regarding Israeli weapons exports boiled over between Israel and the USA. Israel’s status as an observer in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program was suspended. The Pentagon accused top Israeli defense ministry official of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) deal between Israel and the People’s Republic of China and claimed that this has caused a confidence crisis between the Pentagon and Israeli.
Russian spies infiltrating the U.S.? Who do they think they are, Israel?
Why so much emphasis on our traditional spies? Israeli spies are often 'dual-citizen Americans'. Why have we done so little to proscecute them?
They can attack American Ships (USSLiberty), American Embassies (Lavon Affair), and spy (Pollard & AIPAC)...y
They should both go the way of criminal justice...
Why do they need spies, they can buy any info they want directly from Israel.
Again, just found on the first two pages. What's that again about target fixation on Israel and how it doesn't exist on the HP?
