Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Have they really?

How many fake Russian spies have actually ever been accused by US intelligence agencies. Even the Rosenbergs were eventually found in the declassified Kremlin archives to have been exactly the spies they were accused of being. I'm sure there must be some, but 50/5 seems like a gross exaggeration. And since accusing a presidential candidate, and now a sitting US head of state, of being such a spy, or a at least under the influence of, of Russia is so extraordinary, simply brushing it off to spy agency incompetence seems ridiculous.  At least sister- site Booman is taking it seriously.

Uh, every political leader in the third world between roughly 1950 and 1990 who wanted the local mining or banana company to pay tax has been accused of being either a Russian or Chinese infiltrator. Along with most of the anti Viet Nam war movement leadership, and more than a few inconvenient American newsies who committed journalism. And probably a Finnish president or two, though I don't have the references on hand for those.
