Media mogul Ted Turner, being interviewed by Tom Brokaw:
MR. BROKAW: You met Vladimir Putin when he was just an aide to the mayor of St. Petersburg. …most people see not in his eyes a soulful person, but the eyes–three letters, as someone has put it: KGB. That he is…
MR. TURNER: Well, he had that background. But you know, we have an FBI and, and, and, and, and we’re not prejudice against somebody who’s worked at the FBI. It’s an honorable place to work. And the KGB, I think, was an honorable place to work. And it, it gave people in the former Soviet Union, a communist country, an opportunity to do something important and worthwhile.
What a clueless cretin. For all its problems, the FBI is nothing like the KGB. Not even close. Lubyanka Prison made Gitmo look like Club Med.
