In this Essential Geopolitics podcast from Stratfor, Host Fred Burton speaks to Thomas Abi-Hanna, a global security analyst for Stratfor. As anyone in the U.S. who was alive in the 1990's might tell you, the case of convicted spy Aldrich Ames shook Washington and all of its intelligence agencies. Ames worked as a double agent for the USSR and Russia for more than a decade and his treachery led to the deaths of intelligence assets. Subscribers to Stratfor Worldview can read about Ames and the espionage tactics that continue to this day.
