I would be woefully inadequate as a journalist if I tried to pretend that finding a CIA asset in the State Department was some kind of ground breaking news story. It isn’t. It’s a cliche. You can’t swing a dead detainee in any U.S. Embassies without hitting at least one super-secret spook. Apparently they have spook badges, carry trusty compasses and wear cheap WalMart wigs under those fabulous Spy VS Spy hats.
So a CIA Economic Hitman isn’t the big story with the Ryan Fogle arrest in Russia. But as usual, I’ll tell you what is.
