...and it looks like we've been caught with our fingers in the cookie jar!

I hope this isn't the tip of a particularly unpleasant iceberg. I hope Russia doesn't take a more isolationist stance after this. Could it be the kind of incident Putin has been waiting for?

    Originally posted by the BBC article
    Russia's state security service, the FSB, has accused British diplomats of spying in Moscow.

    It backed claims made in a Russian TV report which showed footage of what it said was British agents retrieving data from a fake rock planted on a street.


    The programme said four officials from the UK embassy and one Russian citizen, allegedly recruited by the British secret service, downloaded classified data from a transmitter in the rock onto palm-top computers.

And the game will go on, as it always has ... everybody spies on everybody else, everyone knows it. If discovered, diplomats get expelled, leaders harrumph for their media, and the game goes on as it always does. Putin will growl, but nothing substantive will come of this. I would think it would be more of an insult if your capitol wasn't deemed important enough to spy on.

Personally, I just think Putin is upset that the British are so far ahead of Russia in spy rock technology.
