Outside the Box: Putin may be watching his brilliant American plan go ‘poof’

If the Michael Flynn affair is true, the Russians have seen a brilliant plan blow up in their faces.

But I have been dubious about the speculation around Flynn’s actions and motives. So let’s turn it around and assume that there indeed was a major Russian intelligence operation intended to help elect, and then control, the president of the United States. This would certainly justify the angst in The New York Times, whereas the national security adviser lying to the vice president just doesn’t make the cut. I am trying to imagine the number of times Henry Kissinger lied to Spiro Agnew or Brent Scowcroft lied to Dan Quayle.
