Nearly six months since WNBA star Brittney Griner was first detained in Russia, the Biden administration has been working to return her safely home. Negotiations have been complicated by tensions between the U.S. and Russia since the war in Ukraine first began, yet the Biden administration communicated they are open to a prisoner trade with Moscow. The U.S. is offering Russian arms trafficker Viktor Bout in exchange for the release of Griner and former US Marine Paul Whelan, who was accused of spying. Former Defense Intelligence Agency Officer, Rebekah Koffler joins the podcast to explain the danger and risk involved in giving up Viktor Bout, Vladimir Putin's history on using this strategy to regain valuable assets and she emphasizes the importance of Americans receiving defensive briefings when traveling to hostile territories.

A translator and spy turned international arms dealer, Viktor Bout is to be part of a proposed prisoner swap between the US and Russia for the return of Americans Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan.Griner was found guilty on drug smuggling charges by a Russian court, and convicted to 9 years in a penal colony after 1 milligram of cannabis oil, prescribed by her American doctor, was found in her vaping pen in her luggage in Moscow. The charges are obviously a political play by Putin in response to Ukraine sanctions. If you like our content, please become a patron to get our extra premium episodes every month, as well as our public episodes ad-free. 1 Trevor Reed, a former marine who was also imprisoned in Russia after allegedly attacking a policeman, another Kremlin fabricated story, was recently released in a successful prisoner swap and he said that Brittney Griner will experience "serious threats" to her health if she is sent to a labor camp. Moscow asked for a second Russian to be added to the mix for this proposed swap, an FSB agent, Vadim Krasikov, a Russian spy / murderer, who was convicted in Germany for carrying out a killing on behalf of Russia, an act the judges called “state terrorism.” It is hard to separate fact from fiction in Bout's resume. He's believed to have been born in 1967 in then-Soviet Tajikistan. He studied as a linguist at  Moscow-based Soviet Military Institute for Foreign Languages, a training school for officers, diplomats, and in many cases, spies. He learned Portuguese and he then started his career with the Red Army as a translator in Angola. 2 When the Soviet Union broke up, arms were scattered across the 15 new nations created by the dissolution, especially Bulgaria. These countries had neither the money to pay an army nor the infrastructure to keep the weapons they'd inherited. Viktor saw an opportunity. He assembled a fleet of ex-Soviet cargo planes, massive Antonov and Ilyushin aircraft, and began shipping arms and other goods all over the world. He set up a freight charter in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates and soon became the inspiration for Lord of War, an exceptional movie featuring Eamonn Walker, Nicholas Cage, Jared Leto and Ethan Hawke. Bout kept company with African warlords and dictators such as Jean-Pierre Bemba, Masavenya and Jonas Savimbi. After 9/11, the US needed scapegoats and Bout fit the bill. By entrapment, he was captured in Bangkok, Thailand and extradited to the US where he was convicted of aiding terrorists. The judge's opinion coincides with ours: “Until DEA went after Bout, he had not committed a crime chargeable in an American court in all his years as an arms dealer. And but for the DEA approach made through this determined sting operation, there is no reason to believe that Bout would have ever committed the charges brought against him.” 3, 4 Merchant of Death DubiMiter – 9.5 1.

The WNBA superstar basketball player, Brittney Griner has been detained in Russia for the past six months, and last week, she was sentenced to nine years in prison for bringing a cannabis product into the country. Former Marine Paul Whelan has been in prison in Russia for more than three and a half years, accused by Russia of espionage, a charge he vehemently denies. Secretary of State Antony Blinken took the unusual step of stating publicly the US willingness to engage in a prisoner swap to return Griner and Whelan to American soil. But while Griner and Whelan are the two detainees that have drawn the most attention, there are 67 Americans who are known to be wrongfully detained in countries around the world. Sarah Krivanek, an American school teacher, for example, has also been detained in Russia for the past 9 months. Emad Sharghi, a businessman, has been sentenced on espionage charges to 10 years in an Iranian prison. Alirio Zambrano is being detained in Venezuela.  Today on Midday, conversations with advocates for those who are being held hostage or being detained by a government. Tom's first guest is Diane Foley, whose son James Foley was kidnapped, tortured and killed by ISIS while covering the war in Syria ten years ago. Diane Foley started the James W.

Then, Tom speaks with Neda Sharghi and Hannah Sharghi, the sister and daughter of Emad Sharghi about their family's experience trying to bring their loved one home from his wrongful imprisonment in Iran, and their efforts on behalf of others through the Bring Our Families Home campaign.

And Jason Rezaian weighs the U.S. response to hostage-taking by hostile governments. Read more:With the sentencing of Brittney Griner last week, the clock started ticking on potential U.S. negotiations with Russia to secure the release of the WNBA star and another American, security consultant Paul Whelan. But how do prisoner swaps actually work? What are the considerations both countries have to weigh before agreeing? And what happens after a deal is made? Senior national security correspondent Karen DeYoung breaks down the ins and outs of prisoner swaps. Also, Post Opinions writer Jason Rezaian – who was released as part of a prisoner swap after spending 544 days in an Iranian prison – talks about the growing problem of Americans being taken hostage by hostile governments and what to expect in the Griner case. “I'm asked often if I'm for or against these kinds of exchanges,” he said. “My answer is, that's not the right question. The right question is … ‘What are we doing to deter hostage-taking in the first place?'”

Why does it seem like America doesn't care that WNBA star Brittney Griner was just sentenced to nine years in a Russian prison? Jason says the reason hasn't nothing to do with racism or sexism. “Race and sex play a role, but not in the way Griner's loudest supporters argue. The truth is the identity politics movement is the reason Griner is caught in a cold war game that used to be reserved for men only. She's a victim of the feminist movement that states there's no difference between Brittney Griner and John McCain …” Jason also points to cynicism towards the American justice system as a reason for the lack of sympathy for Griner, a system that he argues has embraced the same political one-sidedness that Russia exhibits. “It's difficult to muster outrage at the unfairness and harshness of the Russian courts when our own system has fully embraced a harshness and one-sided political motivation.” "Fearless" contributor Steve Kim weighs in on the Griner situation and why he doesn't care. A jury ordered Alex Jones to pay $4 million dollars to parents of the Sandy Hook victims as punishment for him calling the shooting a hoax. Royce White joins the show to explain who and what is really on trial in the case.

On today's Breitbart News Daily podcast, Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema caved. She's joined Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer to help Joe Biden pass a 9-figure Build Back Better-lite called the Inflation Reduction Act, which reportedly won't reduce inflation and may make it worse. Speaking of inflation, food lines in America are getting longer under Biden as pet owners are abandoning their furry friends at alarming rates because cost are sky high. Then, Biden ends another week as virtual President and tested positive for COVID again. Plus, FBI Director Chris Wray warns of potential terror attacks from Afghanistan after Biden's botched withdrawal and the dangers of our open border. Finally, WNBA Star Brittney Griner was sentenced to 9 years in a Russian prison on drug charges and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has sidelined a George Soros-backed  State's Attorney. Our guest today is John Hayward, Breitbart News National Security Deputy Editor. John unloads on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan and details China's attention seeking response. He also highlights the potential danger of a Chinese food manufacturing company that has bought 300 acres of land in North Dakota - just 20 minutes from the Grand Forks Air Force Base.

In Moscow on Thursday, WNBA star Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in prison on drug charges.

Last month, Griner pleaded guilty but said she packed the vape cartridges by mistake.
