Russia Spies to Get Revenge?

Believe it if you will: Russian papers are reporting that the Kremlin has sent assassins to kill the man who betrayed Anna Chapman and 10 other Russian spies in the United States. The target, an unidentified official tells the Russian paper Kommersant, is a Colonel Shcherbakov, who the official says fled Moscow to the U.S. days before selling out the spies. “He will carry this with him all his life, and will fear retribution every day,” says the official. “We know who he is and where he is. He betrayed us for money, or simply to harm something. Do not doubt that a Mercader has been sent after him already.”
