Moscow wants them back quickly and it might happen early as today. Even the good lookin red head won't be charged. Obama agreed to do it so it won't make a rift in diplomatic ties to Russia. Hey, after all, it is one communist U.S.president, which I call a usurper, doing another communist president a favor. What get's me is did they have enough time to interrogate these people to get information for what they have been doing all these years in 2 weeks time? Seems to me it's pretty premature to be letting these people go so quickly. Again here we have a marxist president who sides with our former enemy who has sent people to infiltrate us and spy on us. US Army Retired Russia offers 'spy swap' to U.S. - with deal to take place via Britain | Mail Online A Cold War-style spy swap for the alleged Russian agents is being hammered out. All ten Russians held by the U.S. - including 'femme fatale' Anna Chapman - will reportedly be exchanged for ten prisoners being held in Russian jails who have spied for the West. The swap could begin as early as today, with Britain playing a pivotal role. It is reportedly being hurried through to minimise the diplomatic fall-out between Washington and Moscow - and it means the U.S. will avoid sensitive intelligence techniques being made public in court. The Kremlin will also be keen to sidestep the embarrassment of Chapman and others giving testimony on their espionage.
