Spies Doomed Putin – WSJ

I’ve spent 34 years in the intelligence agency of the Central Intelligence Agency, and watching from the sidelines Vladimir Putin’s brutal war in Ukraine fills me with sadness and a sense of opportunity. Espionage is a predatory business, and there is blood in the water. Mr. Putin’s self-inflicted harm did more to turn his own people against him than anything the West could have done.

Mr Putin’s disastrous decisions are causing military strategists to reconsider what tactics could be used against Russia’s overrated and underperforming armed forces. Policy experts and economists are rethinking tools to punish bad behavior. Other potential attackers – notably China – need to take notice. If your job is to cultivate spies, the recruitment must be good.
