The Feds displayed an intercepted message from headquarters in Moscow which the couple received. It read: "You were sent to the USA for long-term service trip. Your education, bank account, car, house … all these serve one goal: fulfill your mission," In one intercepted message, Richard and Cynthia Murphy had to defend buying the house in New Jersey. "We are under the impression that C.(headquarters) views our ownership of the house as a deviation from the original purpose of our mission here," they said in an intercepted message. "We'd like to assure you that we do remember what it is. From our perspective, purchase of the house was solely a natural progression of our prolonged stay here. It was a convenient way to solve the housing issue, plus to 'do as the Romans do' in a society that values home ownership."
World War I and the interwar era. In 1909, a parliamentary study found evidence of widespread German infiltration, and noted that there was "no organization…for accurately identifying its extent and objectives." As a result, the British government established the Secret Service Bureau. The bureau was divided into a Home Section under Captain Mansfield Cumming, and a Foreign Section directed by Captain Vernon Kell. The two came to be known, respectively, as "C" and "K." After World War I broke out, the Foreign Section became MI1(c), and in 1921 the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), or MI6. Directors of SIS have thenceforth been known by the designation "C" after Cumming, who remained the head of SIS/MI6 until 1923. (The "K" designation, on the other hand, seems to have ended with Kell, first director-general of MI5.)

This post and others are obviously an attempt to stir up division between the US and the Uk just because a certain multi national oil company has British in its title . To you and to any other dense people out there I ask what about multinational do you NOT understand?
BP is 39 % American owned !

It is an interesting theory but that is all it is. The SVR and SIS may collaborate on intelligence matters, its highly likely in fact that they collaborate. However to called the SIS director general C like this points to some very bad tradecraft. Also why would the British assist the Russians in espionage activities in America risking the “special relationship?”. The type of intelligence product they were producing would have no real significance to the British as I understand it.

AH! Wonderful additional info. I was just curious as I had seen the same thing on CNN a few days back. Whereas the letter "C" was used, CNN added (enter) to it, so it's nice to know where that comes from. I've just never seen anyone use a single letter to replace an entire word. It's like if I was going to tell you where I was going to do today and I went... "I'm going to S"... it would be quite hard for you to assume I was stating supermarket. I'm just confused why they would call it "C" instead of calling it "HQ" or something like that. Again this whole thread was just a theory, so no issues since I'm just Theorizing.

“The info has been sent. Check if it was followed so it doesn’t incriminate ’C’enter.”
