What the hell was he thinking?

It seems that another government servant has performed traitorous actions against his county, all in the name of Lust! It seems that a career FBI special agent was the unwitting pawn of a Chinese Double Agent. They had a 20 year affair in which she wooed him with sexual favors and managed to pass on classified information to her own government. Seems like something out of a Bond film doesn't it?

Unfortunately for us, this wasn't the typical Bond film. The good guys don't always win, the bad guys don't wear black hats, and the femme fatale sure isn't a Bond Girl. Aside from putting national security in jeopardy, ruining his retirement, and setting himself up for a lengthy prison sentence, this fool cheated on his wife with this:

Don't get me wrong, I believe in the sanctity of marriage and the importance of trust and monogamy. I don't feel that if the girl had been attractive his culpability would be any less diminished, but I would recognize that there was at least some temptation. Hell, if she would have been a real Bond Girl like this:

We could at least say, "Hmmm....she probably overwhelmed him with her stunning looks and made him weak." But the picture of the first gargoyle that I posted leaves me wondering, "What the hell was he thinking?" Aside from his wife being anguished over his betrayal, and his prison sentence that will be coming, I am sure she is apalled that her husband would cheat on her with a a woman who looks like a "nerdy frog".

So, he threw away his marriage, his retirement, his good name, the trust of his country, and ultimately his freedom on sex with this woman.

What the hell was he thinking?
