Free e-book: Department of Justice vs. Russian spies

spy-vs-spy The “Monday Note” blog writes about a free e-book on Scribd that may be a little dry for some people’s tastes, but sounds very interesting all the same—the Department of Justice Complaint vs. Russian spies (June 2010).

This document summarizes the DOJ’s investigations against the recently arrested Russian spies, and from their summary reads like a primer in espionage ineptitude (from the Russian side). After decades of reading spy stories about how careful espionage agents have to be, it’s a little shocking to see how downright sloppy these Russians were.

It does kind of make you wonder, though, whether they were intentionally positioned to be caught, to draw attention away from more competent agents still at work.
