American Spy in Russia: Now My Experience This Last week Makes Sense…

I wrote this article and explained that I was checked out by the Russian FSB at a routine traffic stop…

Travel in Russia: Are you a Spy? and Other Thoughts… (Part 1)

It caught my interest enough and sparked my inner feelings enough that I wrote a 5 part article all titled like above link. I just finished these articles today. Then all this other stuff pops up and well read for yourself…

44Russia’s counterintelligence agency has detained a CIA agent in Moscow trying to recruit an officer of the Russian secret service, the Federal Security Service (FSB) announced. The agent was operating under guise of career diplomat.

The FSB Public Relations Center has announced that the person detained is Ryan Christopher Fogle, the third secretary of the Political Section of the American embassy in Moscow.

The agency stressed that Christopher had special technical equipment, printed instructions for the Russian citizen being recruited, a large sum of money and means to change the person’s appearance.

The detainee was delivered to the FSB receiving office where he has been questioned and after all the necessary procedures he has been handed over to representatives of the US embassy in Moscow.

Now it all makes sense and the 40 people rounded up makes even more sense. This is the first time that I had to deal with the situation that I have dealt with this last week and I hope the last…

America keep your damn worthless spies away from Russia. I like it here and do not want any crap rocking the boat…

Here is the perfect ending…

US Ambassador to the Russian Federation Michael McFaul refused to comment on the detention of his subordinate for espionage activities. On his Twitter account he simply wrote ‘no’ answering a question about Ryan Fogle. But tomorrow he will definitely have to have an answer to the Russian Foreign Ministry, where he has been summoned to give an explanation concerning the incident.

    In his exclusive interview to the Voice of Russia, an anonymous expert from comments on today’s CIA agent detention in Moscow.

    The source asserts that “If I were Russia I would focus on strict border control of neoconservatives and obvious Americans making a mess in the Caucasus. On this story, please note that agents are the ones that commit treason, case officers or operations officers are the ones working out of official facilities (rarely non-official facilities). If the fellow is a US Government employee, refer to him as a clandestine operations officer.

    Juvenile CIA is to think that they can run operations undetected from the same fixed point every day.

    More to the point, the question Russia should be asking publicly is this: the US has spent trillions of dollars waging elective wars rooted in 935 now documented lies. What could that money have done for peace and prosperity sure to reduce tensions and terrorism? The USA lacks intelligence and integrity, this well-intentioned incompetent is living proof of the fact that the USA is simply not serious about knowing anything, just going through the motions.”

    US Ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul has left the Russian foreign office after an uncomfortable meeting over the recent arrest of a CIA agent, who allegedly tried to recruit a Russian intelligence officer.

    Ambassador McFaul refused to comment on the contents of the talks, leaving the assembled crowd of journalists with nothing but a wave of hand and a faint smile as he was climbing into his car.

    The alleged US spy, Ryan Fogle, was detained overnight, on May 13, after he contacted a Russian intelligence officer. Moscow has declared Fogle “persona non grata” and demanded he leave the country at once.

    Today, the US Ambassador was summoned to the Russian Foreign Office in Smolenskaya Square where he spent over 30 minutes discussing the spy scandal.

    US State Department spokesman confirms an officer at its Moscow Embassy was briefly detained and released

    The confirmation comes one day after Russia’s counter-intelligence Federal Security Service (FSB) has detained an operative of the CIA in the act of recruiting an officer of a Russian special service.

    CIA agent detained in Moscow: Scandal to aggravate Russia-US relations and hamper all attempts at cooperation after Boston

    While after Boston Marathon attacks Russian and US intelligence services agreed to cooperate in the spheres of international security and counterterrorism, Tuesday detention of CIA agent Ryan C Fogle, who was sent to Moscow to recruit Russian citizens, seems to prove the contrary: The US is not yet ready to cooperate with Russia.

    Interrogation transcript

    “We invited you here for a routine formality that follows the detention by the Federal Security Service (FSB) of people who committed some crime. The case in point is that at 11:30 p.m., this man calling himself a U.S. diplomat phoned an employee and offered him to spy for the United States.

    The employee is a trained staff officer engaged in counterterrorist activities in the North Caucasus. After the first call, he rejected the offer. But the man phoned again and insisted that they should meet. He offered him money – 100,000 euro – for espionage. At first, we didn’t believe that this thing could happen. You know well that the FSB is actively assisting in the investigation of the Boston bombings and providing other information that threatens U.S. national security.

    FBI directors paid a visit to Moscow recently, during which we agreed to cooperate in combating extremism and so on. Presidents Putin and Obama, in their conversations, agreed upon closer joint efforts between our special services in achieving understanding in matters of cooperation.

    Against this background, when relations between are countries are getting stronger, an American diplomat commits a state crime, as we call it, against the Russian Federation. Under the current circumstances with both countries seeking a better relationship and our presidents are striving to improve mutual understanding, this man commits a serious crime here, in Moscow, on behalf of the U.S. government.”

    Detention of American diplomat may have serious repercussions – Josh Meyer

    The detention of American diplomat Ryan Fogle, allegedly caught red-handed trying to recruit a Russian intelligence officer for the CIA may have serious repercussions.

    The incident sparks numerous questions, which are yet to be answered, believes Lecturer in National Security Studies at McCormick Technical College Josh Meyer, interviewed by the “Voice of Russia”.

    “Who is Fogel, was he actually working for the CIA, and did he really try to recruit someone?” – the expert queries.
    Meanwhile, says Meyer, the evidence discovered in the detained diplomat’s possession, such as wigs, recording equipment and other, points to the seriousness of the accusations.

    Meyer also voiced the opinion that in Fogle’s case diplomatic immunity status may not work.

    Spy went too far – expert

    n the midst of Russia-US spy scandal political scientist Pavel Danilin, currently working as the head of the Internet site, shares his opinion on the issue with the Voice of Russia. The expert stresses the fact that the time for the CIA’s hiring operation was very badly chosen.

    The CIA decided to acquire a new Russian agent at a very sensitive moment – two important events are planned for the next month, June 2013. The first event is the first one-on-one meeting of the newly elected Russian president Putin with his American colleague Barack Obama, which is due to take place in the framework of the G20 summit there. (Before they met only during the period of Putin’s premiership). The second event is a peace conference on Syria, which Putin and the US secretary of state, John Kerry, agreed to hold during Kerry’s recent visit to Moscow.

    Here is what Pavel Danilin has to say on this:

    “Of course, there is nothing surprising about the fact that the United States is involved in some espionage activities. On the other hand, why did this scandal break out today, when the terrorist acts in Boston are still frsh in people’s memory, when the US officials are trying to mend ties with Russia, when Obama and Putin exchange personal letters, when visits of various levels are being prepared? It was certainly not the best of ideas on the part of the CIA to get more active with its operations in Russia at precisely this moment. The fact that the Russian special services foiled this operation – this fact only indicates that this particular spy went too far. It is a noteworthy fact that this happened on the eve of groundbreaking summits between the two countries. So, this is just a provocation on the side of the CIA. Which other aims could it pursue when sending its agents with a commission to bribe the officers of Russian security services into betraying their own country?”
