What Spies Today Do
- I am asking all of you to try to comment on your opinions on the
jobs of spys today. The cold war is over and there is a new threat..
terroism. I believe spies battle terroism.
- In the arena of world affairs, I would say there are plenty more for
intel services to watch. India/Pakistan relations, Chinese military
and economic growth (not to mention CI, or counter-intelligence), the
infancy of post-Soviet Union Russia, religious fundamentalist groups
of all kinds, the various civil wars and nationalist groups around
the globe. Those are just a few. Also, please do not use the
world "spy" incorrectly. Analysts and case officers work for
intelligence services. I'm guessing you meant case officer when you
said spy. If there is glamour in intelligence, case officers would be
the ones to know it since they recruit "spies" to betray their
loyalities by giving information.

- Actually I meant spies as in people who do all the field work. And
perhaps these are the people who intercept those numbers
transmissions I hear.
