James Banford called the NSA the “puzzle palace,” but this moniker is just as fitting for CIA, perhaps more so.

Is the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail “off the reservation?”  They’ve been driven to pursue this Boston story in all its unbelievable twists, turns and connections.

UK DAILY MAIL:

“But it was becoming clearer today that the US was seeking to lure into treachery an FSB agent who had knowledge of Russian intelligence operations on suspected Boston terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who lived in America but had travelled to Dagastan where he was believed to have met Islamic extremists.”

‘At first we did not believe it was happening, because recently the FSB has been actively helping to investigate the Boston blasts, and was also providing some other information about threats to US national security.

Fogle apparently hinted at an initial payment of $100,000 followed up a salary of up to $1 million a year plus bonuses if the Russian intelligence official handed over secrets to the CIA.”

The [Russian Foreign] Ministry hit out at ‘provocative acts in the spirit of the Cold War’ and has ordered the expulsion of Fogle, arrested wearing a blond wig under his baseball cap…

A letter in Russian which Fogle carried suggests – if genuine – that the CIA hoped to reel in a big fish.

Addressed ‘Dear friend’, it states: ‘We are ready to offer you $100,000 [£65,000] and discuss your experience, expertise and co-operation, and the payment may go much higher if you are ready to answer certain questions.

‘For long-term co-operation we offer $1million [£650,000] per year.’

The recruit is instructed to use an internet cafe to ‘create a new Gmail mailbox which you will use only for staying in touch with us’.

Sounds a lot like the spam I get from the Director of the Bank of Burkina Faso!  Same letter writer?  We report.  You decide!
