Russian Spy Suspect Jumps Bail?

From the "No shit, Sherlock!" desk:

What happens when you allow a suspected Russian Spy to post bail?

See: From Russia With Gripes
All but one of the 11 members of the alleged ring remain in federal custody. One suspect apparently jumped bail Wednesday. Christopher Metsos, who the Federal Bureau of Investigation said shuttled between Moscow and the U.S. to coordinate the spy network, had been arrested Tuesday in Cyprus while preparing to board a flight to Budapest, Hungary. He posted bail as the U.S. sought extradition on charges of conspiracy to conduct espionage and money laundering

Did someone seriously expect a different result?

Justice Minister Loucas Louca admitted that a judge's decision to release Christopher Robert Metsos "may have been mistaken" but said authorities were examining leads on his possible whereabouts.

"May have been mistaken." Ya think?

Off course the loons of the grass-roots left at Democratic Underground think the whole thing is a hoax.

See: Russian Spy case is a US fucking hoax.
This girl sounds like many other intelligent Russians that come to work in the U.S. This whole case falls more in line with Bush plants in the FBI creating a controversy to make Obama look foolish after his meetings with Medvedev. As Sergei Lavarov said already the timing is very suspect.

I think the DU guy is serious. I think he really believes that.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that there are people out there in the wilds of the Internet that think it cute to post racist and Nazi garbage on other peoples websites. Some of these thugs are even enabled by people who should know better. In my opinion, both the thugs and their enablers are worse than spammers.

I have recently made enemies with a particular group of these people who have done just that on another website. I don't intend to make it easy for them to do that to me.

In light of that, comment moderation will be used here on this humble and very obscure little blog.

I will check in several times each day to approve appropriate comments.

For the most part, I will allow just about any type of comment except for spam and Kilgorian excrement.
