Here on ATS we has a group are all guilty of it.

When something really weird happens, we just jump the gun and blame our usual suspects, the CIA, KGB (SVR), MI5 or 6, Mossad, ISI, DIA, IAA..whoever.

But we never blame the GRU. WHY?

How could this have slipped by?!

"The GRU is Russia's largest foreign intelligence agency [1]. It deploys six times as many agents in foreign countries as the SVR, which is the KGB intelligence successor. It also commanded 25,000 spetsnaz troops in 1997"

en.wikipedia.org...

The GRU is not some new organization. It is older than anyone here apparently.


"The GRU was created on October 21, 1918 under the sponsorship of Leon Trotsky, who was then the civilian overseer of the Red Army[4]; it was originally known as the Registration Directorate (Registrupravlenie, or RU)"

"According to the Federation of American Scientists: "...Though sometimes compared to the US Defense Intelligence Agency,[the GRU's] activities encompass those performed by nearly all joint US military intelligence agencies as well as other national US organizations.The GRU gathers human intelligence through military attaches and foreign agents. It also maintains significant signals intelligence and imagery reconnaissance and satellite imagery capabilities." "

"According to GRU defector Stanislav Lunev, "Though most Americans do not realize it, America is penetrated by Russian military intelligence to the extent that arms caches lie in wait for use by Russian special forces"."

I bet there is truckloads of conspiracies, hidden documents, and oddities are to be found in the GRU's vaults.

They are clearly a major player.

I guess it's time to update our blame X agency list!

Is there any other proof of America being penetrated by the GRU? And how can you be sure that this defector is not a double agent?

Yeah seriously good questions.

Those waters are too muddy to even try.

Well most people do not know who they are in the 3 letter alphabet soup agencies. Anything we say will be just speculation as I never see these guys in the news, so to be honest NOTHING comes to my mind.


OK, I did a GOOGLE search and there is a story here in Poland.

But this little part sounds STUPID.




Russian spy detained in Poland 06.01.2010 11:49 It has been revealed that Poland’s Internal Security Agency detained a spy last year who worked for Russia’s largest foreign intelligence agency, GRU.




Polish security officers, who have been awarded for their work, also found signaling equipment in his flat.


Article

He was keeping signaling equipment AT HOME ???? Woww, sound like a very stupid agent. Reminds me of the show "Allo Allo" from BBC
