     Did Mike Flynn break the law when he talked to the Russian Ambassador? Did the Trump campaign contact Russian intelligence services? What is the relationship between Trump's team and the Russian government? What did Stephen Bannon and Donald Trump know, and when did they know it?
     We, the American people deserve answers. That's why I signed a petition to Jeff Sessions, Attorney General, which says:

 "As an advisor to the Trump campaign, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is too close to the situation. We call on Sessions to recuse himself and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate."

The CIA wants foreign language speakers

CIA needs foreign language experts 

     I believe the CIA is desperate to hire linguists. The Director of National Intelligence issued a May 2012 directive that improved foreign language skills throughout the U.S. intelligence community, and the CIA knows that foreign language interpretation by linguists is "essential to the performance of intelligence missions and operations."
     Remember Leon Panetta, the former CIA Director? Years ago, he doubled the number of analysts and collectors who were proficient in languages, particularly those that were mission critical. He set out to increase by 50% the number of people with the right language skills to serve in language-use positions. He also transformed the way CIA trains its officers in foreign language capabilities and increased the number of officers in full-time language training (Increased the number of officers from the National Clandestine Service in full-time training by 50% and tripled the number of analysts from the Directorate of Intelligence in full-time training).

     Since then, the CIA has been on a mission to recruit and retain new officers who have critical language skills. Foreign language competence for intelligence purposes extends well beyond mastery of a common vocabulary or the ability to translate a newspaper article. Shortfalls in foreign language abilities are a recurring problem in U.S. intelligence agencies, for less than 20 percent of Americans speak at least two languages. And, the Intelligence Community must find, among that population, its multilingual recruits from a much smaller pool of candidates who are willing and able to serve.
     A major constraint on HUMINT collection is the availability of personnel trained in appropriate languages. Cold War efforts required a supply of linguists in a relatively finite set of foreign languages, but today's Intelligence Community, especially the CIA, needs experts in a wider range of more obscure languages and dialects, according to CRS specialist Richard A. Best, Jr. After all, al Qaeda functions in 60 different countries around the globe!
     The CIA is boosting its ranks of foreign language speakers, with a special focus on recruiting speakers of Arabic, Mandarin (Chinese), Dari, Korean, Pashto, Farsi (Persian), Russian, Dari, and Urdu. The clandestine services refer to these as "mission critical" languages because they reflect the current world's political and military "hot spots." Linguistic fluency in these tongues are especially important if you're seeking a position in the clandestine service.

POLL: Has Putin and FSB spy agency compromised President Trump?

Do you think Putin and Russia's FSB spy agency has compromised President Trump? See where you stand. Comments are also welcome. free polls

        Have Russian FSB spy operatives compromised President Donald Trump? Has Putin’s FSB spy agency, the successor to the KGB, been blackmailing America’s POTUS?  Please take the short survey above and compare your opinion to what others think about this matter.
     Secret memos from former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele, who was positioned inside Russia in the 1990s, assert that Russian operatives have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump. U.S. intelligence officials say that Mr. Steele is a credible source and his word should be trusted. The MI6 agent’s memos were based on information he obtained from Russian sources.

Join OSINT NEWS and get free newsletter on U.S. and foreign intelligence agency happenings and a free newsletter on Russian spy agency happenings.

     Steele’s dossier must contain critical information, for MI6 rushed in to protect him by sending him into their dark, underground, undercover world. He’s disappeared, vanished from the limelight. MI6 is obviously protecting him, like they do for all their agents who find themselves in harm’s way. Many spy agencies around the world, not just the CIA, are chasing after Steele and his secret dossier, which apparently contains portentous and coercing intelligence about President Trump’s financial and personal dealings inside Russia.
     Specifically, intelligence officials believe Putin and his FSB may have compromising evidence that Trump engaged in perverted sexual acts with prostitutes (SVR honey traps) during encounters that had been arranged and recorded at a Moscow hotel by the FSB. Also, the FSB may have proof that Trump is nowhere as rich as he claims to be, since Russian banks loaned him money when other banks would not. His many business dealing with Russia may have resulted in his owing much to Russian investors, who saved his companies from going bankrupt.
     This explosive information held by Putin’s FSB may explain the harmonization on key issues between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government. It may also explain why his campaign directly coordinated with the Russian government, which yearned for him to become POTUS.
     What do you think? Has Putin and his FSB spy agency compromised Donald Trump? Did the MI6 agent uncover big and embarrassing information that shows Trump would do anything for Putin to ensure it never became public? Or, is nothing going on? Please take the poll and find out where you stand on this issue.

Russian intelligence undergoing transformation

     The "Russian Spy Agency Happenings!" newsletter publishes timely updates about Russia's KGB, SVR, FSB and the GRU. Surprising events are unfolding inside the Kremlin and it appears Putin is bringing back the tactics used by the KGB during the Cold War. Russia's top cybersecurity spymasters have been arrested or found dead. They seem to be cleaning house inside their national security service, the FSB.
     Were the alleged spies actually moles recruited by MI6 or the CIA? Ruslan Stoyanov, a researcher in Moscow's Kaspersky Lab and Sergei Mikhailov, top man in the FSB's Center of Information Security have both been arrested by Russian police for possible treason. The police broke into a Moscow meeting that Mikhailov was having with other FSB officers, put a sack over his head, and escorted him out in handcuffs. So much for due process.
     When President Obama was leaving office, classified documents were presented to him and to President-elect Trump that suggested Russian operatives had compromised Trump via his personal and financial dealings inside Russia. These biting accusations stemmed from memos compiled by a former British MI6 intelligence operative, who U.S. intelligence officials describe as a credible source. The MI6 operative got the information about Mr. Trump from his Russian sources. Were these sources the FSB agents recently arrested by Russian police?
     Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers relayed this top-secret information to President-elect Trump so he was aware that the allegations involving him were being circulated among the 17 intelligence agencies, senior members of Congress and other government officials in Washington.
     Meanwhile, experts within U.S. counterintelligence say the number of Russian spies currently lurking inside America exceeds the number operating within the U.S. at the height of the Cold War. A transformation in the Russian spy agencies is taking place and the "Russian Spy Agency Happenings!" newsletter will keep you abreast of it.
     Although I write about Russian intelligence, I will not push my book on you! Instead, I recommend these two writings below by other authors. Enjoy!

Hollywood spy portrayal unrealistic

    Although there are 17 agencies within the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC), the CIA is best-known for HUMINT, human intelligence. Hollywood has James Bond fixated in our minds, but not too many CIA operations officers have chased terrorists in a half-million-dollar vehicle. However, they do carry and use spy craft and spy tools that even “Q” would be jealous of.
     I visited CIA headquarters in Langley a few years back, and enjoyed seeing the robot fish and artificial insects that carried listening devices. CIA case officers are trained at the “Farm” to go into foreign nations undercover and recruit people to commit treason against their own countries by giving away information that the government wants to keep secret. Those people they recruit are called “spies,” although Hollywood calls all CIA agents spies, which they aren’t. The officers themselves, neither is James Bond in Britain’s MI6 a spy.
CIA's artificial insect
     The vast majority of CIA employees are not case officers. Many are analysts, support staff and technology experts (Like “Q” in James Bond). Also, unlike Hollywood’s portrayal, the CIA cannot spy on U.S. citizens. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has the lead on intelligence matters in the United States, especially those directed against US citizens, like the FBI does domestically, but maintains on-going foreign intelligence collection in every corner of the earth it can plant officers into.
     Sorry, Hollywood, but the CIA lacks agents who go “rogue” and there are no illegal, secretive operations going on under the radar. I met a CIA lawyer at a luncheon sponsored by the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO). His name was John Rizzo, and he explained that the CIA does not operate above the law. There are hundreds of lawyers hired by the CIA and their sole purpose is to make sure the CIA conforms to the National Security Act of 1947 and to the many Executive Orders that give authority to CIA activities. No, there are no “rogue” agents or conspiracy-theory operations going on out there (Sorry, Hollywood). Jason Bourne would have his ass in front of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) and then prosecuted and sent to a federal prison. That’s after the CIA’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) nails him and the secretive CIA administrators who created the program Bourne got mixed-up in.
     A “Spies” (CIA Case Officer) mission can be exciting when overseas, but much different than Hollywood’s portrayal.
