    Re: Russia furious over Cold War-style US spy arrests

    A country that elected a former high-level KGB operative in landslides is shocked and upset about spying?

    Sounds like what they're really pissed about is that we caught theirs and they haven't caught ours. You know we have our tentacles spread out in Moscow. They just have inferior intelligence.

    Do realize that it's way more probable that they just do not announce it when they capture a spy.
    I find it to be way more logical, considering that the spying country won't complain (they don't want it to be found out) and the capturing country would be able to hide the spy's handling from the eyes of the international community.

    Also, reading the complaints, you get the sense that the government is trying to point out to the Russians just how thoroughly owned they were.

    “The magnitude, and the fact that so many illegals were involved, was a shock to me,” said Oleg D. Kalugin, a former K.G.B. general who was a Soviet spy in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s under “legal” cover as a diplomat and Radio Moscow correspondent. “It’s a return to the old days, but even in the worst years of the cold war, I think there were no more than 10 illegals in the U.S., probably fewer.”

    Mr. Kalugin, now an American citizen living outside Washington, said he was impressed with the F.B.I.’s penetration of the spy ring. The criminal complaints are packed with vivid details gathered in years of covert surveillance — including monitoring phones and e-mail, placing secret microphones in the suspected Russian agents’ homes and numerous surreptitious searches.

    My suspicion is that some of our "spies" will be getting caught over there within days not weeks.

    (and anyone with an American passport is a candidate to be nabbed. They (Russia) just need to come up with 11 of them.....)

    Hot? It depends on the relativeness.
    She looks like the average Russian girl to me.
