Russia Detains American ‘CIA Agent’


ciaRussia has reportedly captured a CIA agent who was trying to recruit a Russian Federal Security Service agent. Ryan Christopher Fogle was reportedly acting as a secretary in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.

Russian news sites ran pictures of Fogle tackled on the ground while wearing a blond wig and baseball hat and later sitting at desk after his capture. Other photos show Fogle’s possessions: several wigs, glasses, €500 notes, and an embassy ID. Text of a letter detailing how the Russian recruit should start a Gmail account for the covert communication and an offer of $100,000 (and up to $1 million per year for more cooperation) was also released. Fogle is being held at the American Embassy.
