Espionage writer Raelynn Hillhouse and her intelligence sources are marveling at the ineptitude of the spies who murdered former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko.
few days ago an expert in the field called the spies’ tradecraft "really amateur hour." With recent the recent developments, she wrote me back, "This has gone well past the Austin Powers level to Get Smart. And when they finally trace it back to the FSB First Chief Directorate’s offices, it will be a cinch for the Inspector Clouseau Award."
There must be easier… and certainly more subtle…ways to kill a man than irradiating half of London and two British Airways jets.
