Ten arrested in US on charges of spying for Russia

Ten people have been arrested in the United States for allegedly spying for the Russian government, the US Department of Justice has said.

They have been charged with conspiracy to act as unlawful agents of a foreign government, a crime which carries up to five years in prison.

Eight of them were arrested on Sunday for allegedly carrying out "long-term, 'deep-cover' assignments" on US soil.

Two others were arrested for allegedly participating in the same programme.

An 11th suspect remained at large, the justice department said.

Nine have also been charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Will be interesting to see how this develops on the diplomatic ground.

Re: Ten arrested in US on charges of spying for Russia

Now, Russia will probably go and arrest ten of our spies. So much for the "reset."

If they were smart, they would just buy their intelligence from all the Israeli spies we have here. Those guys are much better. :mrgreen:

Safe conclusion to draw: they sucked at their job.

Which is a good thing, btw.

Well actually it really depends on how long they've been in the US.

When they return home to Moscow.

Putin: You have all failed me. Guards, you know what to do.
Actually it's mainly the responsibility of the general command to protect the field ops from being compromised, so I don't think it's really their fault.

Russia furious over Cold War-style US spy arrests

MOSCOW (AFP) – Russia angrily hit back on Tuesday at US claims that it had smashed a Moscow-organised spy ring, saying the accusations were reminiscent of the Cold War and could damage efforts to improve relations.
The following is my rant to Russia.............

To the Russians - You are angry that we arrested your spies? Duh???? In case you haven't been following the news here for the last few years (which would surprise the crap out of me, since you do like to spy on us), we arrested spies from China. We arrested spies from Israel. We arrested spies from Taiwan. Now we arrest your spies. In short, WE ARREST SPIES AND THROW THEM IN PRISON. I am sure you do that too, but just to make things perfectly clear, so do we. We arrest spies. And you are furious? Are you also ****ing retarded? We arrest and jail spies. Why do I keep repeating this? Because you just don't ****ing seem to get it. We arrest spies. So feel free to keep sending us your spies, and we will keep providing them with a cot and 3 squares per day for a few years. We arrest spies.

Damn, just when I think I have already heard from the biggest dumb asses in the world, Russia shows up, and proves me wrong.

We arrest spies, Russia. Thank you, and **** off.

We arrest spies.

I have just completed my rant to Russia. Oh, and one more thing - We arrest spies.

Article is here.

So they are pissed we arrested their spies? Are they saying that they wouldn't have arrested our spies if they were caught. Seriously Russia get over it they were caught.

Russia is correct, their spy ring has damage chances of improving relations. They should have thought about that before sending them over here. I hope they'll accept these consequences as a small price to pay to keep relations for getting worse.

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.
