Here Come Russia's Dirty Tricks
Assassins in Ukraine, malware in our infrastructure, US sabotage agents
In this week’s lively podcast episode, “maverick strategist” Sean McFate—former Army paratrooper, private mercenary and Atlantic Council sage—talks about the deployment of Russia’s paramilitary Wagner Group in Ukraine. Then retired senior CIA operations officer Gregory Sims says U.S. security officials should “expect the unexpected” from the Kremlin and not be caught flat-footed by Vladimir Putin, who could well unleash big “surprises" on the order of 9/11 and Pearl Harbor if he’s cornered, Sims says.
All this in the 47th episode of the SpyTalk podcast, co-hosted by me and Jeanne Meserve. Hope you’ll give it a listen—and leave a comment. We can take it!
