Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) Announced It Has Arrested a CIA Spy Identified as Ryan Christopher Fogle in Moscow
RUT-ROH … Russia’s security services, the Federal Security Service (FSB) has arrested what they are saying is a CIA agent posing as an employee of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. The man has been identified as Ryan Christopher Fogle. He was arrested on suspicion of spying. The FSB said Fogle had been masquerading as a career diplomat at the Political Section of the U.S. Embassy, but that he was a CIA employee. Hmm, how’s that Obama – Russia reset button going? Much, much more at RT, Russia Today. Let’s see how the Obama administration handles this one.
Ryan Christopher Fogle inside FSB office
Russia’s security services claimed Tuesday to have arrested a CIA agent posing as an employee of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow for allegedly trying to recruit a Russian secret service agent to work for the U.S.
The Federal Security Service (FSB) announced that it had detained a man identified as Ryan Christopher Fogle on the evening of May 13 or early the next morning for attempting to recruit a Russian agent.
The U.S. Embassy would not comment on the reports when contacted Tuesday morning by CBS News.
Russian news agency RIA Novosti quoted a statement from the FSB as saying Fogle was arrested while trying to recruit a member of the Russian security services, and he had on his person, “special technical devices, written instructions for the Russian citizen being recruited, a large sum of cash and means of changing his appearance.”
After being arrested and processed by Russian security services, the man was handed back to the U.S. diplomatic mission in Moscow.

Technical devices, a large amount of cash in Euros and disguises were also confiscated during the arrest.
Fogle also possessed a letter that offered the Russian officer up to $1 million per year in compensation and asked him to set up a new Gmail account to accept the offer.
U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul said via Twitter that the embassy had no comment at this time. The embassy’s press service also confirmed that the U.S. mission in Moscow would not comment on the situation
Poor, Poor Pitiful Terrorist … No One Wants To Bury Boston Marathon Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev … Ship His Carcass Back to Russia COD!
Wait, what do I hear, crickets playing the violin?
File the following story under, no kidding, REALLY? It would appear that there are no takers to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bombing suspect who was responsible for killing three people and inuring over 200 others as two bomb explosions occurred at the finish line and later killing an MIT parole officer. Imagine that? The funeral home owner Peter Stefan stated that it would be impossible to send the body back to Russia and added the family wants Tsarnaev buried in Boston. I COULD CARE LESS WHAT HIS PARENTS WANTED!!! What is wrong his this funeral owner, has he lost his mind when he said, “If we had Hitler here, we would bury Hitler.” NO WE WOULD NOT!!! Impossible, how is it impossible? Ship Tamerlan’s dead terrorist carcass back to his parents in Russia, COD. It seems like a rather easy to me. Why on Earth would any cemetery want this terrorist in it? All that would happen is retribution against the place and the cemetery would be vandalized. There is no way that the location would not be known, especially in this day and age of social media. Shipping this terrorist hence he came from would solve many problems, including not rubbing the good people of Massachusetts’s face in the mud of actually having this killer’s body buried in their state for eternity. Would seem to me that since Tamerlan Tsarnaev has no problem going back to Russia to foster his terrorism education, he should have no problem going back there as a corpse. Hell, for that matter cremate his or bury him at sea next to Bin Laden. There is a reason why Bin Laden was not buried, how about we think of the families of those murdered and maimed this time? When even Muslim cemeteries do not want you … you got a problem … time to send him FEDEX back to where he came from.
No one willing to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but I bet there are many people willing to stone him even after death
A Worcester funeral home director was scrambling last night to find a cemetery that would bury the marathon bombings mastermind, as protesters jeered outside his door demanding that the bomber’s body be shipped out of the United States.
Emotions ran high outside the Graham, Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlor, which is handling the unenviable task of burying terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
“He should burn in hell,” said Ann Mink of Worcester, who was part of the sign-toting crowd.
Added Theresa Noye: “I would put him on a boat and drop him in the ocean with Osama bin ?Laden.”
Funeral home owner Peter Stefan told the Herald he has reached out to four cemeteries where Muslims are buried and so far all have turned him down.
A note to ignorant funeral owners across America … we may bury he worst of the worst here, BUT NOT TERRORIST, WHO USE OUR COUNTRY AND THEN KILL AMERICANS!
The Russians secretly recorded in a wiretap Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussing Jihad with his mother Zubeidat Tsarnaeva. Russian authorities had previously turned over information to the United States that it had on Tamerlan and his mother. The Tsarnaevs are ethnic Chechens who emigrated from southern Russia to the Boston area over the past 11 years. However, they did not turn over this wiretap. Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva were on US terror watch lists and questioned by the FBI, yet on May 1, 2013 Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhohkar, detonated two homemade bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 260. The question remains, why did Vladmir Putin and the Russians not provide this piece of information when warning the US about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s extremists actions? We will never know if the FBI would have acted on such intel or whether it would have prevented the bombing. Then again, we do not know if it would have either.
Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call.
In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.
The conversations are significant because, had they been revealed earlier, they might have been enough evidence for the FBI to initiate a more thorough investigation of the Tsarnaev family.
As it was, Russian authorities told the FBI only that they had concerns that Tamerlan and his mother were religious extremists. With no additional information, the FBI conducted a limited inquiry and closed the case in June 2011.
In early 2011, the Russian FSB internal security service intercepted a conversation between Tamerlan and his mother vaguely discussing jihad, according to U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation with reporters.
The two discussed the possibility of Tamerlan going to Palestine, but he told his mother he didn’t speak the language there, according to the officials, who reviewed the information Russia shared with the U.S.
As reported at CBS News, in another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case.
The United States Cancels Part of Missile Defense That Russia Opposed … It’s Just Barack Obama Being More Flexible
Comrade Obama keeps his word to Moscow …
Huh, remember when President Barack Obama was caught on an open mic telling Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” to deal with Russia on issues like missile defense after he was reelected? Guess what America, that time is now. As reported at the NY Times, the United States [Obama] has canceled the final phase of a Europe-based missile defense system that was fiercely opposed by Russia. As Just One Minute correctly states, “the election and the North Korean missile tests give Obama the excuse to do what he wanted to do anyway.” Just how weak and clueless is Obama as a Commander in Chief?
The United States has effectively canceled the final phase of a Europe-based missile defense system that was fiercely opposed by Russia and cited repeatedly by the Kremlin as a major obstacle to cooperation on nuclear arms reductions and other issues.
Russian officials here have so far declined to comment on the announcement, which was made in Washington on Friday by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel as part of a plan to deploy additional ballistic missile interceptors to counter North Korea. The cancellation of some European-based defenses will allow resources to be shifted to protect against North Korea.
If Obama had been in Office during the 1980′s, the Soviet Union would never have collapsed and the Iron Curtain would still be standing.
Life Imitating the Movie Armageddon … Meteor Crashing in Russia’s Ural Mountains Injures at least 500 People
Talk about Life Imitating the movies, this time the Bruce Willis action thriller ’Armageddon’ – VIDEO … A meteor came crashing down in Russia’s Ural mountains and injuring at least 500 people and spreading panic. According to the BBC, of 514 people injured in the Chelyabinsk region, 11 were being treated in hospital, the regional emergencies agency said in a statement. The UK Daily Mail is claiming that there were over 950 injured when the meteor streaking across the sky crashed at around 9.20am local time. Many amazing pics of the meteor and the damage caused by it can be seen HERE. Witnesses said that houses shuddered, buildings damaged, windows were blown out and cellphones stopped working.
A meteor crashing in Russia’s Ural mountains has injured at least 500 people, as the shockwave blew out windows and rocked buildings. Most of those hurt suffered minor cuts and bruises but some received head injuries, Russian officials report. A fireball was seen streaking through the clear morning sky above the city of Yekaterinburg, followed by loud bangs. President Vladimir Putin said he thanked God no big fragments had fallen in populated areas. A large meteor fragment landed in a lake near Chebarkul, a town in the neighbouring Chelyabinsk region. Much of the impact was felt in the city of Chelyabinsk, some 200km (125 miles) south of Yekaterinburg. “It was quite extraordinary,” Chelyabinsk resident Polina Zolotarevskaya told BBC News. “We saw a very bright light and then there was a kind of a track, white and yellow in the sky.” “The explosion was so strong that some windows in our building and in the buildings that are across the road and in the city in general, the windows broke.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin & Kremlin Cheers Obama Victory …They Can’t Wait for His “Flexibility”
Following the election of Barack Obama Tuesday night for a second term, the Kremlin cheered Obama’s victory. Why you might ask? They were looking forward to his new “flexibility” after his last election of course as Obama told Russian President Dmitri Medvedev when Obama thought no one was listening.
MOSCOW – Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent a congratulatory note to President Obama after his re-election Tuesday, his spokesman said. The Kremlin says it will make the text public after the Americans have received it. Putin is also expected to call Obama personally “in the near future.” “In general, the Kremlin took the news about Barack Obama’s victory in the elections very positively,” spokesman Dmitri Peskov said, according to the Interfax news agency. “We have the hope that positive initiatives in bilateral relations and in Russian-U.S. interaction on the international arena in the interests of international security and stability will be developed and improved,” he added. It is perhaps not surprising that the Kremlin is pleased with the outcome of the election, especially since President Obama told then-President Dmitri Medvedev earlier this year that he would have more flexibility after the election to negotiate NATO plans to place components of a missile-defense shield in Eastern Europe.
OBAMA LEADS ROMNEY 41% TO 8% IN RUSSIA!!!
Finally, the Obama campaign has something to cheer about. They are leading by 33 points over Romney. The polling is outside the margin of error and points to a certain Obama victory and provides momentum for Team reelect Obama in the swing states. Oh wait, the poll was taken in Russia. Oh, NEVER MIND!
An overwhelming percentage of Russians said the reelection of US President Barack Obama would better serve Russia’s national interests as opposed to the presidential challenger, Mitt Romney.
With the presidential race in the United States going down to the wire among American voters, Mitt Romney must be thankful that Russian citizens are not eligible to vote in US elections.
In a nationwide poll that tracked Russians’ political attitudes, a whopping 41 per cent of respondents said they want to see President Obama voted back into the White House, while just 8 per cent expressed preference for Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
Makes one wonder about Obama’s off-mike comments to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”
The UN, Hugo Chavez, Raul Castro and Vladimir Putin Endorse Obama for Four more years … UN Warns America Nor to Elect Romney
Could there be four better Presidential endorsements for Mitt Romney than the United Nations, Putin, Chavez and Castro endorsing Barack Obama for President of the United States?
As reported at Breitbart, the UN warns Americans not to elect Mitt Romney.Really, the UN is telling us to do something? Who the hell are you people to tell us to do anything? You act as if you are actually relevant. Just curious, when was the last time that the United Nation’s had America’s best interests at heart?
As stated at the Jawa Report, that is more than enough vote for Romney in itself. Why would any right minded thinking American citizen do what the un-UN wanted? But of course water-boarding had nothing to do with extracting information from 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and information from Al Qaeda operative Hassan Ghul in leading to the death of Bin Laden.
The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.”
The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended.
But wait, there is more ringing endorsements for Barack Obama. Hugo Chavez, Raul Castro and Vladimir Putin all endorse Obama. So will the Obama campaign make up new bumper stickers, signs and pins, Dictators for Obama? So why would such individuals want to back Barack Obama? Could it be because he is a weak, ineffective US President who likes bowing to foreign leaders?
Global Approval for International Rock Star Barack Obama Declines Drastically Since The One Became President
The International Rock Star has fallen …
According to a recent Pew Research Center poll, Barack Obama, the International rock star President is no longer.Global opinion of Obama was declined in 21 countries. As reported at the Politico, approval of Obama’s international policies has dropped from 78% to 63% in Europe; from 34% to 15% in Muslim countries; from 40% to 22% in Russia; and from 57% to 27% in China.
Some countries remained confident in Obama, but others like Muslim countries did not. Hmm. You mean that Obama apology tour and the outreach by Obama to the Muslim world no longer calling it a “global war on terror” but instead an “overseas contingency operation” did not work? Go figure. Barack Obama also likes to tout the drone strikes to show how tough he is on terrorism, even though Obama inherited it from GWB. It would seem that in predominantly Muslim nations, American anti-terrorism efforts are still widely unpopular.
Global approval of President Barack Obama’s policies has declined significantly since he first took office, while overall confidence in him and attitudes toward the U.S. have slipped modestly as a consequence.
Europeans and Japanese remain largely confident in Obama, albeit somewhat less so than in 2009, while Muslim publics remain largely critical. A similar pattern characterizes overall ratings for the U.S. – in the EU and Japan, views are still positive, but the U.S. remains unpopular in nations such as Egypt, Jordan, Turkey and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, support for Obama has waned significantly in China. Since 2009, confidence in the American president has declined by 24 percentage points and approval of his policies has fallen 30 points. Mexicans have also soured on his policies, and many fewer express confidence in him today.
Russian News Outlet PRAVDA Endorses Barack Onama … Writes “Electing Mitt Romney as the next President Would be like Appointing a Serial Paedophile as a Kindergarten Teacher”
What a shock, Russian news outlet Pravda enforces Yuri, I mean Barack Obama. Doesn’t that pretty much say it all?
PRAVDA not only had glowing things to say about
Yuri Obama, but they went on to write that GOP Presidential primary hopeful Mitt Romney was unelectable and “Electing Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States of America would be like appointing a serial pedophile as a kindergarten teacher”.
Pravda is hitting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over comments he made about Russia. “Russia is the geopolitical foe,” Romney said earlier this week in response to President Obama telling his Russian counterpart to give him “space” so that he could have “more flexibility” after the 2012 presidential election.
So, in an op-ed today posted on Pravda’s website, the infamous former Soviet newspaper writes, “Electing Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States of America would be like appointing a serial paedophile as a kindergarten teacher, a rapist as a janitor at a girls’ dormitory or a psychopath with a fixation on knives as a kitchen hand. His comments on Russia are a puerile attempt at making the grand stage and boy, did he blow it…”
Of course the Russians are just peeved at Mitt Romney’s response to removing the missile defense system from Poland and Romney’s questioning Russia’s lack of help on the world stage to America. Sorry, if the shoe fits.
The actions he’s taken so far which he says are to reset relations with Russia have not worked out at all. Russia continues to support Syria, supports Iran, has fought us with the crippling sanctions we wanted to have the world put in place against Iran. Russia is not a friendly character on the world stage, and for this president to be looking for greater flexibility, where he doesn’t have to answer to the American people in his relations with Russia is very, very troubling, very alarming…
Does it really come as a surprise that the former Soviet propaganda media outlet endorsed Obama after the comments that “The One” made to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev.
Yuri Obama told Medvedev that with regards to the missile defense, “this is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” Medvedev replied that he would transmit the information to Vladamir Putin.
