Tuesday Morning Open Thread: Which Obama Cabinet Member Did the Hot Russian Spy Have a Bead On?



BBC2 is airing a show entitled “Modern Spies.” One of the episodes alleges that the Russian spy Anna Chapman had her sights set on an Obama cabinet member:

Another revelation in the series is the real reason why the FBI swooped on Russian spy Anna Chapman in 2010. Top officials feared the glamorous Russian agent wanted to seduce one of US President Barack Obama’s inner circle. Frank Figliuzzi, the FBI’s head of counterintelligence, reveals how she got “closer and closer to higher and higher ranking leadership… she got close enough to disturb us”.

The fear that Chapman would compromise a senior US official in a “honey trap” was a key reason for the arrest and deportation of the Russian spy ring of 10 people, of which she was a part, in 2010. “We were becoming very concerned,” he says. “They were getting close enough to a sitting US cabinet member that we thought we could no longer allow this to continue.” Mr Figliuzzi refuses to name the individual who was being targeted.

It could be not entirely true, but still, just for kicks, let’s consider which Obama cabinet official was targeted by the Russian seductress. My money’s on J-Nap.

We can rule out Steven Chu. Hot chicks — even spies — never go for guys who don’t have their own car.

Update: The FBI denies the hot chick spy was edging close to the White House to seduce a cabinet member.

J-Nap just released the following statement: “Dammit!”
