We always knew that international espionage was as sexy as it was with Bond Girls. Anna Chapman, an apparent worker in New York’s financial district, has been uncovered as one of several covert Russian operatives working to get closer to U.S. policy makers in order to gain intelligence regarding Obama’s plans for U.S. – Russian relations. The thing that sets her apart from the other accused, of course, is that she’s smoking hot.
Like the soon-to-be-launched Angelina Jolie vehicle, “Salt,” Chapman is a sort of honeypot spy using her feminine wiles to get closer to U.S. congressmen in order to get them to leak their secrets which she, then, reports back to her headquarters in Moscow.
She was taken down, reports the NY Post, when a covert U.S. intelligence officer posed as one of her Russian handlers. Her method of delivering intelligence was to wirelessly transfer data from her laptop to a remot, yet nearby Russian handler. The U.S. officer posed as one of these handlers, asked her if she was ready for her next assignment, and she replied “S— yes.” What a minx.
Documents filed in the Manhattan federal court today detail all the gory details of the rest of the prolific if less attractive spy ring broken up this weekend. Head to the Post for details, or check out more pictures of Anna Chapman below.
