US intelligence to warn sailors to beware of pretty strangers

Washington, July 3 (ANI): The American intelligence community is likely to spend years addressing how spies, including Russians recently, could have infiltrated the U.S. so easily and for so long.

Those lessons are already taking hold in the military. The Marines are using a picture of Anna Chapman to warn sailors not to put their trust in beautiful strangers overseas, the Washington Post reported Friday.

Chapman - a stunning 28-year-old, who ran businesses and attended parties in Manhattan, - has dominated media coverage of the spy story so far.

According to the Post, "Security officers hoped the pictures would be a wake-up call to their charges, especially the younger ones. The message was this: Whatever stereotypes they might have for spies are probably wrong."

"Her pictures are now part of our [counter-intelligence] awareness briefs," an unidentified security officer told Post blogger Jeff Stein.

The officer said foreign intelligence agencies are likely to employ beauties like Chapman to lavish attention upon soldiers with security clearances "and developing a relationship, solely to exploit them." (ANI)
