Did you see the news about the US indicting an FSB spy for his extensive work organizing disruptive groups here to help sap American will? Reportedly not in custody, probably on the lam.

Intercepted email to the organization that made its bones under another set of initials while billeted on D. Square: "you asked for social unrest. You got it."

This century's version of Rudolf Abel. Master spy master provacateur. One coup: Americans demonstrating outside social-media headquarters against taking down Russian propaganda like the bit you showed. Rationale: First Amendment!

Second coup: a black agitation group funded and organized to rant about historic racial injustice here, and continued police assaults on primarily young black males--creating static about how can the US bitch about POW castration, child murder, and gang rape when we're worse? Anyone watching Kremlin bloviations from when the Rosenbergs stole our nuclear secrets to now will recognize an old familiar Commie refrain.

We live in interesting times. Remember, this is an ancient Chinese curse: may you live in interesting times.
