Snip..... In what could be the biggest State Department scandal since State Department official and United Nations founder Alger Hiss was exposed as a Soviet spy, a top Clinton State Department official and former Time magazine journalist has been identified as having been a trusted contact of the Russian intelligence service.
Snip... The sensational charge against Strobe Talbott is made in a new book based on interviews with a Russian defector.
Snip... Talbott has been and continues to be a major foreign policy thinker. Back in 2000, when he was named head of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization, he was described as "a key architect of U.S. foreign policy" during the Clinton years. Talbott now serves as president of the liberal think tank, the Brookings Institution, in Washington, D.C., where he gets paid over $400,000 a year, leads a staff of 277 and presides over an endowment of over $200 million.
Snip.. This is not the first time that Talbott has come under scrutiny for his alleged contacts with agents of a foreign intelligence service. In 1994, when he was being considered for his State Department post in the Clinton Administration, he was grilled by Senator Jesse Helms, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, about his relationship with Victor Louis, a Soviet "journalist" who was actually a Soviet KGB intelligence agent. Talbott had been a young correspondent for Time magazine in Moscow.

Well, well, well. What have we here?
I am not surprised at all.
Yep.. I remember him well.. and, I am NOT surprised in the least.
No way, its a set up by BUSH:-()
Please tell me that he has been a foreign policy advisor to the Clinton campaign.....
Do I gotta say it ?
I’ll be surprised if he turns out to have been the ONLY Soviet spy in the Clinton mob. The Chinese were certainly well represented, so why not also the USSR?
Is the Pope a Catholic?
Next, you'll be telling me that bill clinton is a womanizer!
Very interesting and educational article. Thanks very much for posting.
Talbott is a start. Scrutiny should also be placed on Anthony Lake, who is Obama’s foreign policy advisor.
Ask and thy shall receive.....
From the full article:
“Although Talbott has been identified in press accounts as a current adviser to Hillary Clintons presidential campaign, he showed up to hear Senator Barack Obama deliver a foreign policy address in 2005 to the Council on Foreign Relations and declared, It was very impressive.
Plus — Obama is not ignored:
“Interestingly, one of Talbott’s closest friends in the U.S. Senate, Republican Richard Lugar of Indiana, has emerged as a foreign policy adviser to leading Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama of Illinois. In 2005, Lugar and Obama made a visit to Russia to promote the scandal-ridden “Cooperative Threat Reduction Program (CTR),” also known as the Nunn-Lugar program for its original Senate sponsors. The CTR has poured about $6 billion into the former Soviet Union in foreign aid, supposedly for the purpose of preventing nuclear proliferation.”
Maddie Albright has to be one also.
Hell, I knew this 10 years ago.
That's about as far as the article goes.
