Western spy agencies strike back: A warning to PutinOne of the most satisfying moments in any spy thriller is when the bad guy the black-hat operative who has been killing and tormenting his adversaries does something dumb and gets caught. That's essentially what's been happening recently with Russian President Vladimir Putin's pet spy agency, the GRU.What's fascinating about the GRU revelations is that they seem to reflect an aggressive pushback after several years in which Putin (chiefly through the GRU) launched recklessly aggressive covert actions against the West. The indictment, which named seven GRU officers, included details about Russian spy operations that could only have been collected by the CIA and National Security Agency and its foreign partners.One GRU hacking operation sought to sabotage the World Anti-Doping Agency's effort to punish Russia for systematically drugging its Olympic athletes; a second, chilling GRU hack stole information from Westinghouse about advanced U.S. nuclear-reactor technology.The revelations are a public warning to Putin: Knock it off, you're more vulnerable than you think.
