In case you Blue MAGA progressive Swampcultists don't understand, Brittney Griner is a victim of the impotence and ineptitude of "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap."

On behalf of Brittney, I thank you for foisting him on to a helpless world!

    HtS,
    What would you want ANY US president to do in this situation? Send in Seal Team Six to free Griner? Threaten to bomb Russia? Start WWIII? Russia already rejected a swap for swap for arms dealer Viktor Boot, aka the Merchant of Death.

    She is not the only American being held there. I understand that there is a teacher in prison as spy on what appears to be trumped up charges. There are probably other Americans there.

    The truth of the matter is that Griner is guilty and she royally screwed up. She claims she was packing in hurry and forgot she had the cannabis oil in her vaping device. She shouldn't have entered Russia with any cannabis in the first place as it is totally illegal there. It's nuts to try to get any pot through airport security in a hostile foreign nation. Especially one on the brink of war. Her manager, her agent and/or any of the people who care about her should have made it clear to Griner that she can't bring a speck of hash oil with her to Russia.

    There are just some places, airports in particular, where you don't carry potential contraband. That includes guns, exotic animals, various plants, fruit and drugs.

    Forget Moscow, I would make sure I don't have pot in my luggage if I was flying into Montgomery, Alabama. In Alabama getting caught with any amount of cannabis can land you in jail for up to 20 years.

    Maybe Biden should first focus on getting pot smokers out of prison in Alabama.

    Curt,

    These things happen when Americans elect, honestly or not, a dweeb.

    Remember the Iranian hostage crisis? Jimmy Carter. Dweeb.

    Curt - I feel badly for her, but as you pointed out, it was incredibly negligent and her own fault.

    HtS,
    The bombardment of Fort Sumter. Pearl Harbor. 9/11. All those presidents were dweebs?

    Anyway, you've got nothing. Not even a hypothetical suggestion of what you'd better than Biden is already doing. That's OK, nobody else has any better ideas.

    I actually agree with both of you. She should be charged with felonious stupidity. On vacations, we recheck bags for anything the hotel staff may have put in there. I know it seems kind of paranoid, but I'm not going to risk anything I don't know is there. I was actually surprised she actually had the oil and knew it was there. The cops there are pretty notorious for putting things in luggage to "detain" someone for awhile.

    Curt, I agree this is something you have the state dept geeks do. They have people that are really good at this sort of thing. So no war, no overreaction once the deed was done. I'm not going to guess what's going on behind the scenes.

    Flip side. Why did Putin do it? Because he could and the US isn't going to do anything to stop him. Vlad knows he could get away with it. She's high profile and I think he thought he could get more mileage out of this. And it bought him some leverage. He has 9 years at least to find that perfect moment to make this an issue. I'm not sure what anyone else would do, but it seems the world's bad guys are doing whatever they want with impunity.
