Military Review

As the American intelligence Crimea blinked

The other day, the Wall Street Journal talked about how the American special forces miscalculated the “invasion” of the Russians in Crimea. In a material dated 24 in March, journalists Adam Entous, Julian E. Barnes and Siobhan Gorman share with the reading public their thoughts on how the Kremlin managed to fool not only intelligence analysts, but also military satellites that monitored the Crimea. The authors conclude that the Russians probably learned to circumvent the western wiretapping.

The US military satellites spied on the accumulating Russian troops within the reach of the Crimea last month, write correspondents. But intelligence analysts were surprised by the events that followed: after all, they had not intercepted any messages that Russian leaders and military would exchange on the threshold of an “invasion”. As a result, representatives of the American intelligence came to a disappointing conclusion: Russian specialists may have advanced in technology and hid from the American wiretapping.

Now, to mend the information breach, special services and the US military are rushing to expand satellite coverage. Their goal is to intercept messages throughout the territory of Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic countries. US officials want to intercept everything that concerns the "intentions of Russian President Vladimir Putin." They want to know about Putin’s decisions even before he takes action.

The Obama administration is "very nervous," said an unnamed person close to the subject of discussion.

Curiously, some senior intelligence officials told Barack Obama three days before the “Crimean operation” that Russia could take the peninsula so quickly that Washington would know about it only when everything was behind.

The article reports some more details.

It turns out that expanding surveillance by increasing satellite coverage of Russia and Ukraine to the West is hampered by limited resources. The military cannot divert too many resources from Afghanistan, North Korea, Iran and other hot spots.

February 26 at a briefing for Obama and other politicians James Klapper, director of the National Intelligence of the United States, and with him other intelligence leaders, highlighted the Crimea on the agenda, journalists write. According to their estimates, the Russian military is most likely preparing for an operation in the Crimea. True, US intelligence agencies did not have supporting evidence. Few intercepted reports of V. Putin and other Russian officials gave nothing.

As a result, it is still not clear to the Americans: whether the Russian leaders deliberately avoided the topic of “invasion”, or simply found a way to do this unnoticed by the United States. Another version: Mr. Putin decided to “seize the Crimea” at the last minute and did not tell almost anyone about it, except for those responsible for the operation. However, some officials from the United States and the United Kingdom believe that the plan to seize Russia was prepared in advance.

Western intelligence officers unanimously say that they underestimated the quality of the Russian forces inside the Crimea. An intelligence official says that the United States had "certain information that Russia is using its armed forces to take control of the peninsula" on the night of February 27. However, this particular anonymous did not say anything concrete.

Later, on February 28, Mr. Obama issued a public warning addressed to Mr. Putin concerning the violation of the sovereignty of Ukraine. By that time, however, the Crimean peninsula was already under Russian military control. This Obama reported later ...

Pentagon officials made urgent calls to their Russian colleagues. Journalists are not surprised that the Russian military said almost nothing, and some even said they were “surprised.”

“It was a classic disguise,” said a senior American official.

So, the scouts and the military agreed that Moscow used complex tactics and outwitted simple Americans who, apparently, were accustomed to their satellites, tapping the NSA and drone to the point that Pentagon heads completely lost the habit of thinking. Overheard, of course, easier!

On this subject, and reasoning ordinary Americans, expressed in numerous comments on the article.

For example, John gault writes: “Not surprised. Obama is too busy spying on his political opponents to worry about the Russians. ” Robert Reed believes that America needs "real spies" who would live and work in foreign countries. “No amount of electronics can replace people in this game,” he says. Russians have thousands of agents abroad, and we have about 100, the commentator writes further. "We put all the eggs in one very fragile basket of the NSA, and everyone nowadays knows how to take advantage of this weakness." Liz greenwood writes with mockery: “You men, spying on Gmail, in order to see your grandmother’s accounts, have you forgotten about spying for Russia? What a pity that you overlooked the invasion in Ukraine! ” Jack Ritchie believes: "Everyone should understand that the problem is that the NSA is spending its efforts and huge resources on spying for US citizens, and not doing the work for which it was intended."

To this it remains to add that if American citizens understand the essence of the problems of intelligence and the White House, Obama, the Pentagon and Klapper, apparently, think in a different direction. Assumptions about even more powerful programs of wiretapping and observation, about even more spy satellites are no more than an extensive way of doing the same work, which the US special agencies obviously do not cope with. Or maybe this excuse for a purely American "cut" the federal budget? .. In this case, the NSA can be advised to develop a special program for reading V.V. Putin's thoughts at a distance.

Well, in the meantime, congressmen and corporations are once again sawing billions, Russians may find themselves in Alaska. “Last minute”, yes, Mr. Obama?

      Extremely violent invasion, no free choice of Crimeans. Everyone voted at gunpoint AK-47, all in turn, Russian troops (no, better fighting bears) took hostages relatives of those who voted. But they themselves did not see either bears or military men. There is absolutely no evidence. The US and the EU are so overwhelmed with fear that it’s easier to admit that they missed the seizure of Crimea by Russia than to recognize the will of the people. After all, everyone knows that people love when they are ruled by the Nazis, fascists, ordinary bandits.

      Like it or not, they have once again exposed themselves to ridicule. If they continue to follow the rhetoric of the capture of Crimea, then intelligence, diplomacy, and influence in general, the US and the EU is melting before our eyes, like spring snow. Well, if they admit that in Crimea the people themselves determined their fate, then again all their rhetoric about democracy and dem. values ​​shake. So they made a choice. Because it’s easier to admit that your intelligence is not doing as well as you would like than your Worldview and World Order are chaos, devastation, crises of all kinds and forms.

        Why do we need all of Ukraine then? Can you imagine how big this hole is in the country's budget? Now Russia simply does not have purely material opportunities for Ukraine’s accession.
        Just think about restoring the Crimean infrastructure, paying pensions (what does it mean not castrated Ukrainians, but full-fledged Russians) and other things, in 2014 alone, about 240 billion rubles are poured out of the budget. And Crimea is only 5% of the former Ukraine.
        Are you personally ready to pay for joining all of Ukraine? I personally do not.
        The law of physics, if somewhere has arrived, then somewhere has disappeared. Money for joining, or rather, for restoration, all of Ukraine where will they get it? Correctly with his people, there is nowhere to take them elsewhere. And this means that everyone here will live much worse. So well, him .. such a fuss as all of Ukraine. Let's be realistic. In fact, we don’t need all of it, Crimea was needed — yes, and the rest of Ukraine is absolutely not needed.
        And if we ignore the economic component, let's think differently.
        Do you want to have a region in your country, and even such a huge one, where the entire western part of it hates you? Just imagine how much effort you need to regularly maintain order there. And the industry that lies there in ruins? It’s so hard for us to recover, but in Ukraine the collapse is many times more, and so on and so forth. Krajina is a region of parasites, in Russia, with 40 million people. After all, they will have to pay Russian pensions and Russian salaries, and we’ll just go broke on this alone.
        If Russia includes Ukraine, it will lose much more than it will gain.
        So let's argue sensibly, Crimea is a strategically important land and they are vital to us! Our people are 80% there, this is also not an unimportant factor! We need the rest of Ukraine as a dog’s fifth leg. You will see, now Europe and the states will be tormented with Ukraine and they themselves will come running to us to woo it. Just hope the GDP is not like that and it won’t buy it. Let them mess with Ukraine smile

          no one will join Ukraine, but only the South-East and even then you are not economically difficult right. But it’s better to do it faster until the industry has completely collapsed and black soil by the way, mainly in the South-East.

            Ok, if not now, then when? You contradict yourself do not speak now and then you need to speak quickly. So when is it all the same?
            I got slammed a couple of them for my post above the minuses, I'm trying to understand how I could offend people like that?
            Once again, I'm a quilted jacket! But at the same time I can count, the work is like that. So, with all my cottoniness and cheers on patriotism, I understand that I’d better live as I live now, by the way my family, in that Russia with the Crimea returning to their homeland. What will I live in Russia where 15 - 000 million people from the newly joined Ukraine hate me like any other Russian and at the same time I have to feed them. I know that in Ukraine it’s not 000, but 20 million people, but I don’t think that everyone will not see us, for this reason he simply quoted these figures. So back to my rams, besides hatred and feeding, the main thing is that as a result, I personally will just not receive the money that Russia will be forced to give to restore Ukraine. And not only that, ok here is a living example - I have a son, a schoolboy, this year he is finishing school, he will act. We really count on the budget, there is no extra money. So that you have in mind For this year's graduates from Crimea min. arr. Russia allocated 000 bureaucratic places in Russian universities. In this case, the Crimeans will not pass the exam. The education system was Ukrainian. Well, everything is clear. It only says that our children who have been studying in Russia all these years will receive less than 000 budget places in universities. I agree with Crimea - it was, is and will be Russia. However, I stress Crimea - 20 percent of the population of the former Ukraine. The question is how many budget places will be allocated to all of Ukraine? This I described a specific problem affecting my family, I can give other examples ...
            Yes, I don’t see it.
            In general, the accession of all Ukraine brings great problems for Great Russia: political, ethnographic, financial, problems of maintaining order, problems for the development of classical regions of Russia and so on and so forth.
            And do not care at least get out of hand.
            And if anyone wants to go to Russia, no one bothers to just move to Russia, the benefit is now the issue of passports. Get over and work and raise Russia. All Ukraine is not needed in Russia, is not needed.
            And here you need to be guided by common sense, I, too, for the Empire! But so far we are too weak for this economically. Although the spirit is ready.
            There is an option not to join, but to colonize Ukraine, this is more pleasant for us, but this is another song. I don’t think so far we are ready to discuss it. laughing

              it’s contradictory because I don’t have any idea how events will develop further. Yes, and who told you that everything needs to be attached. As long as it’s only the South-East, and as soon as there is a generational change, and in 23 years it has already been possible to create Nazi-right-winged cutters and 23 more there will be rockets under Kharkov .... American. good luck to your son, but God forbid, you don’t need to forget about grandchildren. By the way, Kharkiv is a student city and a shortage of universities, although the budget is small and we must bow to our government for this.

I consider the principle that I should be far away from Moscow flawed. Therefore, this approach, it is a dead end. Something else is necessary. And they won’t give it to Russia. If they still swallow the annexation of Crimea, then the floor of Ukraine is unlikely. Choking on saliva. You have to really look.

                Thank you very much for your wish.
                But let's argue from this position. It is good to unite in countries with less stable economies. But if both countries (well, why should it be sinful, because it is so far) with a weak economy, one of which is yes, now feels better and will be stronger and stronger in the future. And at this very moment of growth, it unites with a country where the economy simply does not exist as such. The outcome is simple - both will collapse!
                By the way, no one wondered why the p.i.d.o.s.s. did not impose real sanctions? As if showing - Russia continue to act, we say they are not ready for anything serious. It may well be precisely because we entered Ukraine and took on the collapsed torn Ukraine with its complete absence of economy. By doing so, they stupidly push back the rebuilding of Russia for many, many, many years and hang up a bunch of problems about which I wrote above. I do not claim that this is so, but agree that everything can be ...
                Just don’t think that I am against unification of fraternal peoples. I’m just FOR! But I for that association that will benefit both of us understand?
                The best option for Russia is the section of Ukraine along the Dnieper. The formation of Southeast Ukraine in a separate state. And only then, as the South-East, with the support of Russia, will pull up its economy to unite the countries. What can Russia support in the initial period of the South East? And the fact that as much as possible to load the enterprises of the South East with orders. That is, do not give stupidly money, but give orders and your market, without any duties on products from the South East, plus the organization of a joint venture. Restore as many production links and process chains as possible. The economy of the South East will work, life will improve and the region will become strong and self-sufficient, and then two strong countries will unite and everyone will be fine.
                Alas, this is, in my opinion, the most promising and most painless option, I believe that they are working on it in the Kremlin. And of course, Russia, if anything helps with the defense, this is not discussed.

              Dear, if you don’t fork out now, then you will not see Ukraine anymore. Now is a unique chance. The USA and the WEST there will restore such order that you spend more money on repeated attempts. Ukraine in the USSR successfully supplemented Russia: Voivod was created in Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov tank-building was one of the best, and so on. And you can restore order in the Western regions, even now. Money is being spent on Chechnya, and Ukraine agree not Chechnya. Therefore, it is better to fork out now and not repeat mistakes. NO DECAYS OF THE USSR-RUSSIA. And then he does not need Ukraine. POINT.

                OK. Ukraine is not Chechnya .. here you are absolutely right. Do you feel sorry for the money spent on Chechnya? To me, yes :) And now, estimate how many people live in Chechnya. According to 2010 data, 1 million 269 thousand people lived there.
                40 million live in Ukraine! Do you know how to count?
                Yes, Ukraine must be returned! Definitely necessary, but in order to return Ukraine, you first need to return Russia. Return to Russia status and strength.
                Damn, do you really think that I'm less interested in your Greatness of my united and returned country? NOT! I think that maybe more later. But by virtue of my position, I am obliged to count and calculate, and therefore I realize that the union of two weak people does not make them stronger, but only weakens them. Understand, now is not the time, not yet the time. We have just begun to revive, give Russia a little time. You will see in 10 years a lot will change. It’s impossible to rush, we are still weak in solish and that’s why we can easily tear ourselves.
                Yes, there are many industries left in Ukraine, but believe me, many of them are simply no longer realistic to revive and restore, it is easier to rebuild new ones. And those that survived, with our help, will only become stronger. Ukraine will be ours, there is no getting around it. And the point here is not a chance, now you need to have a cold head and not rush to the worst. It’s very tempting now to grab everything at once ... But you really need to evaluate your strengths, well, we won’t raise it yet, you know, we’ll just tear ourselves up ... And History will still give Russia, STRONG RUSSIA a chance to collect all the stones, and even much more. I, too, for the EMPIRE!

              IMHO, the best option is the federalization of Ukraine. Well and further the establishment of commercial and industrial relations with the Southeast, support and moderate investment in the region, assistance to residents in rebuilding the economy. And as they get up from their knees, so let them decide what they want, with whom and where.

      The principle of "background noise" works well, when masking actions are activated in several places at once. The more volume and plausibility of the background noise, the less noticeable the preparation and execution of the main operation. Brilliant operational work!

      Here, the main factor was that the Americans over 20 years of impunity and world "domination" ........ In general, only now they notice that twenty years of booze have consequences and their body is sick.

      I think that basically the radio and electronic interception of Americans is aimed at tracking digital signals, they ignore the analog technology as an anochronism!
      So it was with the Mig 25, which was hijacked to Japan. When they saw the radio tubes in the radar unit, they wondered for a long time why the Russians were using them, then they came to a "brilliant" guess, this is because they are not afraid of overheating and do not require a cooling system, but everything was much simpler, we did not produce at that time such powerful transistors. wassat... although radio tubes have a number of advantages.

    As a result, representatives of American intelligence came to a disappointing conclusion: Russian experts may have advanced in technology and hid from American wiretapping.

    Or maybe everything is much simpler?
    It is difficult to listen to radio relay communication stations with a narrow beam.
    If the radio exchange is encrypted and compressed, if the packet is always the same length and the scheduled connection, which everyone has long been accustomed to, how to determine activity?
    And low-power transmitters with coded communication in the Crimea - how to intercept them from Turkey or from an airplane over the sea? How to determine their belonging to Russia and understand the meaning of negotiations? In addition, there is always the possibility of transmitting messages orally / in writing in the silent mode. And finally, the good old TA-57 (field telephone of the 1957 model) has not been canceled (and, it seems, they even modernized) laughing

    IMHO For each sage, quite simple and the Americans outwitted themselves, relying on super-duper technology.

Intelligence, in English "intelligence" means intelligence, thinking. And espionage means surveillance.
