Two days ago, Putin proposed to return the name of the current "General Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces" back to the GRU (foreign military intelligence agency of the Soviet Army).

This, for the 100th anniversary celebration of the founding of RU (later GRU until 2010) by Trotsky 11/5/1918.

What a better way to celebrate, than to offer a little sunshine on the KGB (Russian secret service).

I saw it on one of the torrent sites. Then again, so was the complete US Special Forces training manuals including the Sniper one...

It is perhaps worth noting that horndog Bill Clinton went to Moscow as a college student.

I bet the KGB has some very interesting pictures and video of him cavorting with Russian hookers and underaged girls...and boys.

I think they really got these from the DNC, Soros, and the media.

"Yet what is most intriguing about them is that these same methods are still used today — and now amplified with new technology."

Not to worry!

Our magnificent intelligence agencies are on the job...None of those dirty old and successful techniques and patriotic loyalties for us...

Our intels have:

Now its the FSB - the Federal Security Service headquartered in the same building that formerly housed the KGB.

Not to be pedantic but if the manuals are actually KGB manuals then they're at least 20 years old, since the agency now calls itself the FSB.

Regarding the GRU, I worked with a guy in the 1990s who was a former senior lieutenant in the GRU. Something he managed because of family connections - working at a listening station in Armenia kept him out of Afghanistan. While there he got caught by his CO dubbing an ABBA cassette on the GRU's Sony dubbing cassette decks. He spent the rest of his military career dubbing ABBA and various other western pop groups for sale on the black market. This affirmed my suspicion about "Intelligence" agencies generally.

Is Brennan credited for some of the content?

I have a feeling that something big is going to come from the meeting between Trump and Putin on the 11th. Just a feeling.

Words that strangely show up when doing a Russian language word search of the documents.....Obamanovski, Clintonevski, Schiffski.

Victor Madeira, an expert on Soviet and Russian intelligence at the institute for Statecraft, estimates that there are between 280,000 to 480,000 people in the GRU, 387,000 people in the FSB; and, 13,000 people in the SVR. In total, therefore, he estimates there are between 680,000 and 880,000 people in these three agencies alone. For means of comparison, the uK has just 16,868 people devoted to intelligence and security across all of its seven agencies.
