7/9     "US began deliberating spy swap well before arrests"
        http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100709/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_us_spy_swap
        So all the sayings that Obama was screwed and his "reset of ties" was
        jepordized were all cover-up smoke.  He knew it all along.
        \_ You're seriously buying into this?  This is like swine flu Part 2.
           "Much Ado about Nothing." I think is the term the Brits use.

        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US
           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.
           \_ Most people seem to have been surprised by this.

Russian plane believed to be carrying candidates for a 14-person spy swap, is seen at Moscow's Domodedovo airport, on Friday, July 9, 2010. The plane AP - Russian plane believed to be carrying candidates for a 14-person spy swap, is seen at Moscow's Domodedovo ... AP By JENNIFER LOVEN, AP White House Correspondent Jennifer Loven, Ap White House Correspondent - 2 hrs 4 mins ago WASHINGTON - The White House began deliberating a spy swap with Moscow nearly a month ago, well ahead of the arrests of 10 Russians in the United States less than two weeks ago, a White House official said Friday. In the course of the following negotiations with Moscow, the United States put forward the names of the four people who were released by Russia on Friday as their part of the bargain, the official said, briefing reporters on condition of anonymity under ground rules set by the White House. The official said all of the children of the Russian spies had left the United States for Russia or were in the process of leaving. The Russian agents had been under observation by US authorities for a decade. The decision to move against them was precipitated by indications that some planned to leave the United States this summer, the official said. The case was brought to the White House in February by officials of the FBI, CIA and Justice Department. They presented the broad contours of what was known as "the illegals program" and some specifics about the individuals involved. That triggered weeks of meetings at the White House about how to proceed. In early June, a decision was made to take action against the Russians and on June 11, a Friday, President Barack Obama was briefed on the matter in the Oval Office. He was told about plans for the arrests, how they would occur, what the Russians would be charged with and the possible impact of the case on US-Russian relations, the official said. That's when the idea of a swap was raised, in a list of options. Thirteen days after learning of the case, Obama met at the White House with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and the two men went out for hamburgers. Within days of the arrests on June 27, the United States offered to talk with Russia about an exchange of the 10 people in custody for four people held in Russian on charges that they had spied for the United States. CIA Director Leon Panetta and Russia's spy chief worked out the exchange, the largest spy swap since the Cold War, a separate US official said. Panetta had already developed a sound relationship with Mikhail Fradkov, head of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service, that allowed them to quickly clinch the deal, which traded the 10 Russian sleeper agents for the four prisoners in Russia. As part of the swap, there was an understanding by both sides that the deal should not be accompanied by any retaliatory steps or other actions, the US official said. The US government has declared itself pleased with the outcome, saying it got everything it wanted out of the case. Report Abuse What a bunch of uneducated, juvenile swine comments are appearing on this board, both liberal and conservative. It's amazing to me how the dumbing down of America has occurred so quickly. We showed our hand to the Russians a month before the arrests and yet the spies hung around to be arrested? I am sure it sounds great is some community college class but if the Russians knew we were going to arrest the 10 spies, don't you think they would have them leave? The first paragraph of the story says we discussed the swap nearly a month ago. The regime didn't know about the spies but they want you to think everything went as they planned. They planned on more than half of Americans hating their Health Care Bill. When will the press start asking questions instead of just publishing The White Houses press releases? When will the American people demand the press to report the truth?
