Open Thread -- Carter Page, Double Agent?

I saw the headline for this article on Talking Points Memo a few times before I finally clicked on the link. The reason being that I thought "Well, in the old days, that would've been a massive story... but in the current context, why is the fact that Russia tried to use people like Carter Page to infiltrate Trump's campaign newsworthy? Didn't we already know that? But I found this nugget:

“My assumption throughout the last 26 years I’ve been going there has always been that any Russian person might share information with the Russian government … as I have similarly done with the CIA, the FBI and other government agencies in the past,” Page said.

The dog bites man story is that the Russians were using Page to infiltrate the U.S. The man bites dog story is that if Page is telling the truth (and I don't think he is), the AMERICANS WERE USING PAGE TO INFILTRATE THE RUSSIANS!

The guy seems to be as dumb as a post; it's one thing for him to be an unknowing stooge for one country; but is there any way he's anywhere near how intelligent and how cunning one would need to be to pull that off?

Talk about this or anything else #TrumpRussia related in the comments.
