The work of a spy is not very suitable for those who are looking for glory.
Successful operations are carefully hidden so as not to endanger the supply of information and not to expose operatives, failures are hidden even more carefully, because each failure gives the opponent a huge amount of valuable data, not to mention a serious blow to the reputation. However, the few appearing on the public failures raise serious questions not only professionalism, but also to the adequacy of fighters of the invisible front.

Once in country, the boys then recruited the first counter laborer, not even surprised, how easily an American betrays his homeland for $ 250. The next meeting came, the whole group of saboteurs. During the interrogation, the Germans complained loudly cursed the duplicity of the traitor.
There’s no plane
Aircraft spy Francis powers, Soviet air defense shot down a day after public statements by Eisenhower, declared that the United States had never flown over Soviet territory. In the living, but quite fragile Powers America’s intelligence admitted the wayward meteorologist, knows how to get in plane latest reconnaissance equipment.
One photo from the magazine “Ogonek” negated the years of the Soviet KGB. In 1958 David Mitchell, a senior CIA analyst drew attention to the article about the Soviet power.
