Yep, I'm starting a politics thread, because I found something worth reporting!
The former boss of the Estonian security system... turned out to be a Russian spy selling NATO secrets to Vladimir Putin's 'Intelligence services'. This is an extremely high government official. And NATO says there have been other Russian spies infecting its woodwork.
Scary, considering NATO and the CIS (Russia, Belarus, and their satellites) seem to have such a pistols-at-dawn mentality towards one another...Mr Simm betrayed every secret that crossed his desk. There were plenty: as the man in charge of Estonia’s national security system, he organised the flow of all classified military documents in the country and abroad. Once Estonia joined NATO in 2004, he acted as the Kremlin’s eyes and ears on the alliance too (although his poor English, say some, may have limited his usefulness). He also tried but failed to get hold of secrets from Estonia’s security and intelligence services, which are separate from the defence ministry.
