It’s getting so you can’t even plant spies in somebody else’s country without that country getting all wiggy about it and ruining a good relationship:
Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin criticized American law enforcement agencies on Tuesday for breaking up an what they described as a Russian espionage ring in the United States, as other Russian officials questioned whether the arrests were intended to damage relations between the countries.
â€œYou have come to Moscow at the exact right time,â€ Mr. Putin told Mr. Clinton. â€œYour police have gotten carried away, putting people in jail.â€
â€œI really expect that the positive achievements that have been made in our intergovernmental relations lately will not be damaged by the latest events,â€ he said. â€œWe really hope that the people who value Russian-American relations understand this.â€
That Bill Clinton gets around, doesn’t he? Bubba must be serving as Obama’s front-line apology attachÃ© these days now that Hillary’s hanging out in Ecuador bitching about Arizona.
