Washington DC: President Obama met with Russian Federation President Dmitry Medvedev at the White House. As part of the "resetting of relations" with Russia, a great amount of USSR archival information is being released to the USA.
During the latter years of the "Cold War" President Reagan was determined to cause the USSR to spend lots of rubles on foolish programs. The KGB came up with a counter plan to bombard the USA with propaganda that would cause the USA to also foolishly spend lots of dollars.
KGB operatives infiltrated all the commercial radio stations in the San Francisco CA Bay area, posing as technicians. They installed hidden devices for adding subliminal phony messages about Global Warming, Health Care Reform and a Cap and Trade Policy to reduce green house gasses, to the transmitted radio signals.
The KGB concluded that the technique didn't work and the project was abandoned including the second American city, Chicago IL. What the KGB missed was that the psychological effects would not happen instantaneously, but would take many years to occur.
This time delay has since become evident by observing the left wing politics of San Francisco. Additionally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (who was then a local congressperson), Senator Al Gore (a future vice president), Senator Harry Reid and other current members of Congress made trips to the city by the Bay during the Reagan years.
