Posted on 11/30/2014 2:32:40 PM PST by Rio
Former deep-cover Russian spy Anna Chapman plays a starring role in a new promotional video for President Vladimir Putin's military and it sounds a whole lot like Cold War propaganda.
Chapman, you may recall, was the femme fatale rolled up by the FBI in the early summer of 2010 with nine other "illegals" all working undercover for the SVR, Moscow's foreign intelligence service. Their job was to gather U.S. political and economic secrets for the motherland.
But unfortunately for them, they had reportedly been betrayed by one of their own. The FBI had secretly snooped on them for years in an operation known as Ghost Stories.
This begat the biggest spy swap between Moscow and D.C. since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The U.S. expelled Chapman and company, their covers permanently blown, in exchange for four Russians who had been accused of assisting Western intelligence services.
The redheaded ex-spy, born 32 years ago as Anna Vasil'yevna Kushchyenko, has since become a reality TV star (of course). But in her new on-camera devotional to the motherland, she has donned makeup and military fatigues.
Chapman fires a rifle, climb on tanks, pumps iron, and marches (and marches and marches) during the nearly 40-minute video. She also trains with a soldier at close quarters, and he teaches her to stab him in the back. (I know, we've all had relationships like this.)
Also, she takes an outrageous stab at the fitness of U.S. military: "In the American army they fight obesity. The Kantemirovskaya division fighters don't have this problem. Everyone here looks as is they were hand-picked."
Who cares what she has to say?
“Who cares what she has to say?”
Yeah! But I don’t mind the visuals of her!
They severe drinking problems in their military.
Beautiful women are easy to find. She is an enemy of freedom, nothing beautiful about that.
Why else click this thread?
This isn't the whole story, interestingly. One of the "illegals", by the name of Vicky Pelaez (she also had a Russian husband, worked for a Spanish language far-leftist newspaper here in the United States. Her primary function was in creating anti-American propaganda that was very similar to Alex Jones' conspiracy theories, except her focus was on finding ways to blame the United States for everything bad that happens in South America. People understand spies as trying to steal secrets. For Russia, stealing secrets is only one part of it. The rest is in influencing opinion, subverting and controlling your opposition, things of that nature. BTW, this woman now works for a Russian newspaper in Moscow. I learned about her because I noticed that Alex Jones' propaganda was identical to hers back during the last farcical elections in Russia. She was accusing the United States of attempting to delegitimize the traditional Russian voter fraud, which is highly cherished in that country.
This thread is truly worthless without pics.
As her military relies largely on poorly trained and poorly equipped 1 year draftees.
Well you don’t have to fall in love with her. I’m just sayin’.
She eats sour cream on everything, you know.
Yeah I guess you’re right, she would be a great candidate to work in a old fashioned bordello.
Am I the only one who is thinking that Putin is hitting on Anna?
if our troops were stripped of all the force multipliers could they fight and win against Russian forces..?
Not many people know Anna Chapman’s seduction target was NOT a man:
It was HILLARY.
The Turks also pulled a huge lezbo honey-trap op about 3 years ago (maybe 4) against a US Senator.
I heard they had 100% success.
Senator?? Barbara Mikulsky
