Ryan Fogle is accused by the Russian government of working for the C.I.A. in Russia, and attempting to flip a Russian agent to the American cause. Fogle, the third secretary at the U.S. embassy, was allegedly caught with some suspect items, and here's where things get very strange. Fogle had two wigs, three pairs of sunglasses and a letter to the agent he was apparently trying to turn into a double agent.

The video of his arrest demonstrates Fogle's guilt in a scene that looks like it belongs in an inexplicable art film. Fogle is seen standing next to a Russian official. He's looking down and to the side, like he just broke up with his girlfriend. Then, the big reveal, the Russian official reaches up to Fogle's hat, which he is wearing loosely to the side, as if it was put on him haphazardly (which is likely the case). The hat is removed revealing: a ridiculous blonde wig, that belongs in a costume for 60s model or 80s tennis pro.
 
Then, Fogle, still wearing the hat and the wig, is led down the street into a car by a group of men, none of whom are in uniform, one of whom is in shorts.
 
Fogle also apparently had a letter on him, addressed, "Dear Friend." It states that it has a down payment from "someone very impressed with your professionalism." The letter goes on to offer "$100,000 in exchange for your experience, expertise and cooperation. The reward may be much greater if you are willing to answer specific questions. In addition to that we can offer $1 million a year for long term cooperation."
 
The letter, printed in Russia Today, goes on to detail instructions on how to contact these "friends" using a gmail account at an internet cafe.
 
Today, the Russian government declared Fogle a "persona non grata," and demanded his expulsion from Russia. The Russian foreign ministry released this statement:

“At a time when the presidents of our countries have reaffirmed their readiness to broaden our bilateral relations, including special service [cooperation] in the battle with international terrorism, such provocative actions in the spirit of the “Cold War” do not facilitate a strengthening of mutual trust."
 

Hopefully one day Fogle will give a tell-all interview where he either explains how he was set up or what he was planning to do with two wigs and three pairs of sunglasses.
