A moment’s thought for Russian intelligence agencies

I got home from a long day on the road when I caught up with this brief report.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call.
In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.
You know, there are just a few things – probably impossible in the real world – which would be nice if they could come true.
1. If medical professionals on TV actually have anything better to do with their time, it would be nice if they could stop telling me how I shouldn’t enjoy bacon so much.
2. If hotel bars in Manhattan are actually charging $45 for a Bombay Sapphire martini, it would be nice if they told you that they planned to rob you in that fashion before you have two of them.
3. If Russian intelligence agencies actually have a list of people living in the United States whose phones they are tapping and are talking to their moms or whoever about Jihad and possibly attacking the United States, it would be nice IF THEY GAVE US THE FREAKING LIST.
