American Spy Removed from Russia in Strange Caper

Hosted by

The State Department is not talking, but Russians are slapping their thighs about Ryan C. Fogle, officially third secretary of the political department of the US Embassy in Moscow. He's persona non grata after showing up at a meeting with what appeared to be spying gear amateurish enough to embarrass James Bond. Video released by the Russians first shows Fogle face down as a Russian agent pins his hands behind his back, then, later, being questioned by a Russian official with other US diplomats standing by.
