Saakashvili serves two masters2011-07-18 11:19
This morning the media space was conquered by Giorgi Haindrava's interview with a Latvian media agency. He is a well known Georgian film director, and by the way, a predecessor of Timur Yakobashvili and Eka Tkeshelashvili as minister for conflict settlement. Now he is a political emigrant in Latvia. In his interview he unambiguously hints that the president of Georgia might serve big geopolitical players in prejudice of the interests of his own country.
The brightest event in Georgia's current life is a new spy scandal involving four photographers. Many believe that the country was hit with this spy mania not long ago though Haindrava asserts that it all started immediately after Mikheil Saakashvili's advent to power.
"Since first days of Saakashvili's presidency the country has been facing spy scandals. A curious thing is that spies are usually former members of his inner circle - former speaker of parliament, prime minister, defense and interior ministers, ministers of economy and conflict settlement, parliamentarians, UN envoys, and ambassadors to USA, Switzerland, Russia. Thus, 40-50%" of the government that brought Saakashvili to presidency as a result of the rose revolution are Russian spies", - Haindrava says.
An interesting conclusion indeed. What kind of team did the current leader of Georgia have if half of it are spies? And why should everyone be convinced that the current leadership has no Russian agents? Have they all been found out?
If half of the ruling elite are Russian secret agents like oppositional politicians, combat pilots, teachers on pension, common citizens of Batumi, photographers, journalists and many other people, then it looks like the entire country works "under cover". Then Georgia's ministry of interior must be thanked for massive introduction of wiretapping since all Georgians are spies.
Georgia has been topping the list of exposures of spy networks for a long time already. Even North Korea does not find as many agents of foreign intelligence services. The choice is evident: either the country's leadership are not well in the head, or Georgia really is the center of the largest conspiracy known to man, as Imedi and Rustavi-2 journalists claim in their materials. Back to Haindrava's interview now.
The most curious question that arises from the interview with Haindrava - isn't Saakashvili a spy himself? The film director and politician gives an exhausting reply. Here is a piece of the president's biography, as the film director presents.
