VIDEO=> Russian Guard Tackles US Diplomat Spy Outside US Embassy in Moscow
In March 2009 Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama Adminstration was going to push the reset button with the Russians.
Unfortunately, the administration bungled their delivery and spelled out “overcharge” rather than “restart” on their prop.

A Russian guard was filmed this week tackling a US diplomat outside the US Embassy in Moscow.
Russian television broadcast footage of a policeman tackling a man the report said was an undercover CIA agent trying to enter the U.S. embassy in Moscow without identifying himself.
In the grainy, approximately 15-second clip, the man exits a taxi and is almost immediately tackled by a policeman who emerges from a guard box and wrestles him to the ground. In the ensuing struggle, the man manages to push himself through a door into the embassy compound, while the officer attempts to pin him down.
The incident, which took place at night on June 6, was caught on a security camera, according to the report shown Thursday on Russia’s NTV channel. The channel didn’t describe how it obtained the footage.
Russian-U.S. relations have deteriorated to a level not seen since the Cold War as the two powers find themselves on opposite sides of conflicts from Ukraine to Syria.
