Anna Chapman Spy Footage Released By FBI [VIDEO]

Sexy Anna Chapman, secret footage of a group of Russian spies working in America has been released by the FBI. Anna Chapman wasn't just a member of one of the largest rings of Russian sleeper agents ever rolled up by the FBI, officials say.

Tapes, documents and photos released Monday describe and sometimes show how Chapman, now a celebrity back in Russia, and other members of a ring of sleeper spies passed instructions, information and cash. The code name Ghost Stories appears to refer to the ring's efforts to blend invisibly into the fabric of American society.

An FBI spokesman said the decision to release the material on Halloween was coincidental. Meanwhile, the older spies in the 11-member ring fell back on techniques that have been used for centuries: invisible ink, handoffs of money called "brush passes," and forged documents. The FBI report notes: "Technical coverage indicated that a computer signal began broadcasting at the same time."

On July 9th 2010, the U.S. swapped the ten deep cover agents arrested by federal agents for four Russians imprisoned for spying for the West. The swap took place at a Vienna airport. According to a written surveillance report, an FBI agent watched Chapman buy leggings and hats at Macy's.

Later, cameras caught her roaming a department store while a Russian diplomat waited outside. The linchpin in the case was Col Alexander Poteyev, a highly placed US mole in Russian foreign intelligence, who betrayed the spy ring even as he ran it. He abruptly fled Moscow just days before the FBI rolled up the deep cover operation on June 27, 2010.

After her arrest by the FBI for her involvement with the Illegals Program, Chapman gained celebrity status. Photos of Chapman taken from her Facebook profile appeared on the web, and several videos of her were uploaded to YouTube.
