#1 Russian agent Anna Chapman poses in swimwear in Thailand as she enjoys new life running fashion line while MI6 spy she was swapped for fights for his life after being 'poisoned'

#2 I'd reckon there's a very good chance that British Intelligence (MI6) and possibly Chrstopher Steele, tipped us off to Chapman and her Russian cell. After all, she had been married to a Brit and lived in the UK for six years. To think the Brits were not monitoring Chapman whilst she was in the UK is dreadfully naive.

I'd also suggest that Sergei Skripal knew her father, veteran KGB agent Vasily Kushchenko, or knew of his Russian Intelligence status. Hell, Christopher Steele may have known Kushchencko. It really is a small community, especially for a Russian operating in Zimbabwe.

So, a rhetorical question. How badly does anyone feel the Deep State wish to burn Christopher Steele or MI6 ?

#3 6 has long term embedded assets.
When the CIA pulled back their assets were lost and they were forced to share 2nd hand intelligence thru intermediaries. Deep State operates thru contracts not contacts.

#4 Russian loathing for Skripal is highlighted by claims from Russian secret services historian Nikolai Luzan that the double was responsible for disclosing to MI6 the names of around 300 GRU staff members and other 'agents' including those working abroad.

#8 We all know that the protocol for a captured foreign agent is to interrogate/debrief/interview them until the cows come home.

Once you squeeze them dry you give them back, because normally their handlers know they are damaged goods and no longer useful...saves us the wet work.

The fact that Ms. Kushchenko is still breathing and is able to flaunt her assets without a limp is an obvious sign that they still value her as an asset.
