Speaking of security threats, why isn't the CIA investigating the unusually cosy Barry-Putin connection? Is poor Barry being blackmailed by Russians or is he simply repaying them for all their help in getting him into the White House? Only that could explain Barry's desperate pleading with Medvedev in the open mic moment: "Mr. Medvedev, please tell Mr. Putin to give me more time. I will have more flexibility after my re-election." It is quite clear that Barry is being pressured by Putin to do something that Americans would reject. Shouldn't the CIA or Congress worry why he is being pressured and what it is Russians want him to do?
