Now I've been thinking about the guy in NS that got busted for passing state secrets off to foreigners. Originally the foreign interests were unnamed(5 will get you 20 it was Israeli), but more recent media scuttlebutt is saying they were Russian. The government isn't saying one way or the other and I got thinking.
1. Harper seems to want war with Iran.
2. Russia has expressed interest in being on Iran's side in such a conflict.
3. Could this be an effort to subtly discredit Russia in advance of an Iranian conflict?
It is something to think about.
