Young Russian woman, enemy of the state
Tragic is that a young woman would become a spy. Yet, this is no different than being a terrorist for that matter. She is an enemy of the United States, and her behavior on behalf of Russia is unacceptable. She was caught in the act and the FBI has the evidence.
She might cooperate, though will still get a minimum of five years in prison. Then what? Deportation is in the cards? What about her father? What is he doing here?
The investigation continues.
“NY spy suspect wants to stay here, lawyer tells AP

NEW YORK – The Russian diplomat's daughter accused of being a spy is "embarrassed" by photos of her that have turned up in media reports and fears she will be deported, her lawyer said.
Attorney Robert Baum told The Associated Press that he showed Anna Chapman, 28, some of the tabloid newspaper stories that have branded the redhead as a femme fatale and feature photographs from her Facebook page, showing the smiling Russian enjoying Manhattan's nightlife scene, posing in front of the Statue of Liberty and mixing with businessmen at a conference.
"She was embarrassed by some of the photos that were obviously taken from her Facebook pages," the lawyer said. "The truth is she probably no different than your typical single 28-year-old woman in New York City. She runs a successful business, goes out at night. She dates men, enjoys a social life."
Chapman is charged with conspiring to act as an unregistered agent of a foreign government, which carries a potential penalty of five years in prison. She was the first of 10 spy suspects arrested over the weekend in the United States to be denied bail.
Baum said Chapman's father told her to go to police with a fake passport an undercover FBI agent had given to her, leading to her arrest and solitary confinement. He said he may use that information to appeal the bail decision.”
