Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in PlayStation Case

January 30, 2009 -

It's bad enough that rogue CIA agent Harold Nicholson (left) sold out his country for money. But it's simply unconscionable that Nicholson dragged his son into his traitorous world.

The New York Times reports that the FBI has charged Nicholson and his 24-year-old son Nathan with espionage.

From his jail cell, the elder Nicholson allegedly recruited his son to make contact with his former Russian handlers:

Prosecutors said Nathan Nicholson, a former Army paratrooper, had returned from his visits with the Russians with at least $35,000 in cash, some of it in a PlayStation video game case.

 

The money was intended in part to settle a “pension” that Harold Nicholson said was owed him from his days as a C.I.A. spy for the Russians before his arrest in 1996, the prosecutors said.

They knew it was strange when they saw someone actually owning a PS3.

Evidently, they put nickels and dimes in the Wii box... weird.

He tried using a 360, but the box broke down on his way to the airport.

Although, "Father-son Spy Duo" sounds like the makings of the best film EVER.

Oh god I can see this being used in a movie.

Q: ... Bond, if you look over here you'll see a case that contains a game for the Playstation 3.

Bond: What will I use that for?

Q: That's a question even we can't answer... it's really just some rubbish that none of us have any use for.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

Naw it all game related dont you see?  The games make us do all the bad things that happen in society (they are also apparently responsible for global warming and tsunami's). 

Sorry I cannot maintain that level of stupidity for long. 

On a more serious (and grim) note.  If this rogue agent's whereabouts are known I am all for ending his miserable existance.  I am with Dante (the Inferno) on this one.  The lowest levels of hell are reserved for betrayers (and possibly a special place for jackie thompson).

I can´t imagine them using "Videogames made us do it" in this one...

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

I can imagine Jack Thompson doing that

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

pfff what a rubbish spy.

 

That beard is blatently a disguise, its a different colour. Maybe he just couldnt find the right pen to draw it on with.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

He's American! If he was a proper Russian Spy, he wouldn't have been discovered until after his death.

Probably used a PS3 case because its bulkier.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

He should of said that that was the money he saved by switching to Geico!

All he needed was a pair of eyes to put on it...  Those are only a few cents at a craft store.

See? Xbox 360 doesn't support treason! Damn your black heart Sony!

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

The reason they put the money in a PS3 case was only because nobody would have stolen it.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

I laughed so hard at your comment that a bit of pee came out!! Thanks a lot!! And yes, I totally agree with you :)

The Wii might not smuggle money, but it certainly prints it! ;D

Goth_SkunkI don't understand. GamerGate supports an open, diverse gaming community for all as well. Google's statement is contradictory.03/05/2015 - 10:59pm
TechnogeekAnd as far as the Card thing went, I basically balanced it out personal guilt-wise by donating an amount equal to the Shadow Complex purchase price to the ACLU.03/05/2015 - 9:44pm
TechnogeekWelp, look like the Gerberghazi crowd is going to have to use Bing now. https://twitter.com/googlecloud/status/57365320825126093003/05/2015 - 9:42pm
Goth_SkunkAhh! I misinterpreted your statement about being left with almost every game in existence. I interpreted it as 'If you boycott games he's been involved with, you're boycotting almost all of them.'03/05/2015 - 9:31pm
Andrew EisenGoth - Card has been involved with only a small handful of games so if one were to boycott games for his involvement, they wouldn't be missing out on many games.03/05/2015 - 9:29pm
Goth_Skunk@Craig: Only if you're not interested in seeing it end.03/05/2015 - 9:27pm
Craig R.Instead of calling people the "anti gamergate faction", you could just call them "sane"03/05/2015 - 9:23pm
Goth_SkunkWhat do you mean 'almost every game in existence'? Card is a writer, not a game developer.03/05/2015 - 9:18pm
Andrew EisenBut I too wonder how many people who cry boycott actually follow through. I vaguely remember a few years ago a bunch of people boycotting one of the CoD games and were all found playing it on Steam.03/05/2015 - 7:53pm
Andrew EisenAn interesting quandary but not equivalent as boycotting games that Card was involved with leaves you with... well, almost every game in existence.03/05/2015 - 7:51pm
MechaTama31I agree that it's silly to avoid buying a game because one person involved with it said some things you disagree with. But I wonder how many of the people calling it silly this time have boycotted games for, say, Orson Scott Card's involvement?03/05/2015 - 7:40pm

Andrew EisenWell, sucks that that happened and I'm glad he's alright (nothing in the article you linked says he's in critical condition) but there's no need for anyone to shut up.03/05/2015 - 6:41pm
