Don’t tell them. Become a double agent.

Interesting that this shows up on FR. Recently this guy shows up at our church in Georgia. Tall, light complexion, European looking, quiet, almost shy. So I ask my wife if she knows who he is. She does some some checking and comes back with a name, Jack Barsky. And, she is told to check him out on YouTube.

We get home and discover who he is. Next I check out his book at the library. A fascinating read, not that he’s a great author, but that he has an amazing story to tell.

I’ve yet to meet him or engage him in a conversation. But I hope too...

I just watched it as well and I don't usually do that on long videos.........

As a side note, at the 59:50 mark, he mentioned "I dialed into the radio frequency"......quite likely via HAM radio.........

The FBI's Nellie Ohr coincidentally obtained a Ham radio license and radio back in 2016. I'm sure that was in the up and up just as her studies of Russian history and Literature in Moscow back in 1989.........
