Spy swap unfolds with guilty pleas by 10 in NYC

Other news sources say the numbers are 10 for 4. The AP story above doesn't seem to mention how many spies the Russians are releasing.

10 for 4? Did we at least get a "and a spy to be named later" commitment for the 6 they appear to be getting for free?

In a more serious mood I have to ask:

1) What was the rush to send all these people back?

2) Do we know everything they have been up to over the years they've been here? Who they recruited, and who are and what those people are up to?

3) Is this just another example of DOJ incompetence similar to their handling of the "Underwear Bomber" case or an indication of the lengths the Obama Administration will go to so as to appease the Russians?

From what I know it seems that we got the bargain. The spies that were sent beck were a bunch of bumbling neophytes.
