Spymaster, double agent and Russian defector Sergei Tretyakov reportedly died last June 13th of cardiac arrest. The story of Tretyakov’s life may be read in Pete Earley’s book, Comrade J. According to Earley, Tretyakov was the most important defector in many years, and his motive was to warn the American people about Russia. On Earley’s official website we are told that Tretyakov “was fond of saying that the Cold War never ended.” The American people, however, are not fond of listening.
You see, folks, the Russian government still hates us and wants to defeat us in any way that they can. And we pretend that all is well. I fear that we’ll wake up some day and find out how naïve we have been.
