On Tuesday congressional leaders asked for hearings into Gore's secret relationship with Russia's former prime minister. Consider how much trouble Gore got himself into with a simple exchange of information. In a classic move, Chernomyrdin asked Gore to break U.S. laws requiring that he report Russia's nuclear proliferation to Congress. It is typical of KGB agents to ask for these "little favors." After a certain number of such favors the Kremlin owns you. Then you are paralyzed, and cannot act against Russia in any meaningful way. If Americans want to know why our politicians are typically so weak in their dealings with Russia, here is the reason.
There is nothing inconsistent in Russia's assistance to Iran, which is simply a way for them to mess with us. And there is nothing inconsistent with asking the U.S. vice president to break the law. The Russians have everything they need to make puppets out of those who start wars in the Middle East, and those who are responsible for American policy.It's all part of the grand Kremlin puppet show.
