Putin Sang KGB Anthem With Booted Spies

From an amused Associated Press:

Russia’s Putin sings with expelled agents

July 25, 2010

FOROS, Ukraine – Vladimir Putin says he met with the Russian spies who were expelled from the United States, joining them in singing an unofficial KGB anthem and promising them good jobs and a bright future back in their homeland.

Huh. Notice that now these people are safely behind Russian borders the AP and the rest of our watchdog media are calling them spies. Before, they went to great pains to claim that they were not spies, but that they were merely unregistered government agents.

Our news media are truly despicable.

Russia’s prime minister said late Saturday he recently got together with the 10 sleeper agents, without saying when or where. The agents were deported from the U.S. earlier this month in a biggest spy scandal since the Cold War.

"We talked about life," Putin told reporters in Ukraine. "We sang ‘What Motherland Begins With’ and other songs of that character."

"What Motherland Begins With" is a song from the 1968 television series about Soviet spies in Nazi Germany. The song is widely known as an unofficial anthem of Russian intelligence officers.

Putin, a former KGB officer who in the early 1980s worked in communist East Germany as a low-level functionary, spoke about the uneasy lives the secret agents had in the U.S., where they were caught by the FBI in U.S. cities and suburbs where they had been living for more than a decade.

"They had a very difficult fate," Putin said, referring to the expelled spies who spent years of burrowing into American society. "They had to carry out a task to benefit their motherland’s interests for many, many years without a diplomatic cover, risking themselves and those close to them." …

What a laugh. It didn’t turn out to be much of a risk. And in the meantime these people lived in luxury unheard of in the Soviet Union Russia, except for the people at the top, like Mr. Putin.

Putin, however, promised that Russia will take a good care of its spying sons and daughters.

"They will work, and I am sure they will have decent jobs," he said. "And I am sure they will have an interesting and bright life."

It looks like the Associated Press wants to help Mr. Putin allay any fears that future prospects might have about spying for Mother Russia.

After all, any enemy of the US is a friend to the AP.

    Someday somebody will get access to the credit card records held by AMEX, Visa, and MasterCard and will able to track Obamy’s movements around the world over time, during the 44 years when he was below the radar.

    Then they will find out often he was in the USSR and for how long.

    It’s a pretty good bet that the president knows the words to the KGB anthem better than these low level grunts do.

    • Right of the People says:

      But I’m willing to bet he doesn’t know the words to the Star Spangled Banner.

    Pro-reason, to include personal trips, and those as Senator. Wonder if Obama took Russian language like his mother & father did.

    3 of the U.S. (suspicious) spies will remain in recluse as they were probably props to make it look like an even trade.

    Meanwhile, little Indonesian girls posed; dressed in red white & blue waved their little Indonesian flags in their right hands, and the U.S. Flag in their left.

    Americans are not allowed to say God Bless America, or mention religion when they give millions of help to Indonesia, some Indonesians refusing help out of fear the bad Americans might talk about church to them.

    How long will it be til we watch our children forced to carry other countries flags when their leaders visit our country.

    Obama’s appointed Czars.
    czar – noun
    1. an emperor or king.
    2. (often initial capital letter) the former emperor of Russia.
    3. an autocratic ruler or leader.
    4. any person exercising great authority or power in a particular field

    Czars, and their absolute power, lead to very bad things. Totalitarianism, Marxism, the Bolsheviks, Communism, all of the things that Russia suffered as it evolved into the Soviet Union.
    Russia got the name czar from “Caesar”
