Last week, Brian Contos, CISO of the Advanced Threat Protection Group at Blue Coat Systems, discussed how cyberwar has become a great equalizer between nation states. While our understanding of cyberwar and states’ ability to execute a cyberwar strategy are in their infancy, Contos directs our attention to how attacks have shifted from creative mischief to stealing intellectual property, intercepting military communications and the destruction of computer systems. The recent

1985 is known as "The Year of the Spy" for good reason. Numerous Americans were arrested that year in treason and espionage cases, including such notables as John Walker and his "Family of Spies," Edward Lee Howard, and Ronald Pelton. However, clearly the strangest of the 1985 espionage arrests was that of Jonathan Pollard and his wife Anne, who were charged with spying for Israel. While most of the famous 1980s spy cases involved long-term investigations running for years, the Pollard case ran less than two weeks from first report to the actual arrests. Even stranger however, was that the investigation began as a simple look into the mishandling of classified documents by Pollard, with the treason/espionage charges developing only at the very end.

As the Cold War was ending in the late 1980s, Americans might have been justified in thinking that their intelligence services were winning the clandestine spy battles across the globe. In fact, the U.S. was losing badly, despite the multiple arrests for espionage during 1985, known as “The Year of the Spy.” In fact, out of the arrests came a new generation of enemy operatives, and one of the worst of these was Aldrich "Rick" Ames. Working out of the CIA's Soviet Counterintelligence Group at their headquarters in Langley, Virginia, Ames had access to virtually everything CIA knew about the USSR, including America's own deep cover assets. In 1985, amid a nasty divorce, severe money problems, and a chronic drinking addiction, Ames approached a Soviet contact in Washington, DC, and began his career as one of America's most deadly spies. For approximately $4.2 million from the Soviets, Ames turned over the identities of over a dozen American assets within the USSR, most of whom were immediately executed. Realizing that they had a “mole” inside “The Company," CIA mobilized a small and highly experienced group of operatives to hunt down the trader in their midst.
To learn more about the molehunt for Aldrich Ames, join military/intelligence historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is former CIA case officer Sandy Grimes, co-author of the U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIPress) book CIRCLE OF TREASON. Together they will take listeners through the story of how Ames was hunted down and captured, along with just how much damage he did to the United States and its allies during his tenure as a Soviet spy. Listeners are encouraged to call in to talk to Mr. Gresham and Ms. Grimes, to ask questions and offer their own opinions on this critical story from American intelligence operations history.
