Am I bad in thinking that people being contacted by "banks", on Skype, might maybe deserve some of the blame for falling for this, too?

I read the title as "at least trustworthy" and thought I was going to read a feel good article about people connecting with each other despite their government's problems with each other.

The AP is reporting that he's resigning, which makes it seem like he's taking responsibility. But if Kishida is using stronger language than that, good job!

This happened over five years ago and is just now coming out?

I absolutely believe the woman that something happened, but also seems a bit suspect that it's taken so long.

Would be interesting to see how far, if anywhere at all, this went.

I can't really see Hitler's pope having any influence over US diplomacy, though.
