The Honeytrap

So, at one point in the past 21 years, I had seen a VHS tape labeled “Operation Honeytrap” or something similar.  I believe it came out after Aldrich Ames was apprehended.  Unfortunately, during one of our many moves, I discovered the tape had had an incident with some clear sticky goo that had congealed all over the tape and made it unplayable.  And because I first saw it when I was a whole lot younger, my older brain has forgotten exactly what it was about, and how my uncle figured in to it.
What I do remember is that Russia was being accused of using females (the honey) to spy on American spies (the trap).   
In searching for the video online, I discovered this video on YouTube.  It’s not what I remember, but it’s still interesting to watch. 

So the moral to this story is if you are a 60 year old man who works in the government, and a young 20 something starts to flirt with you, think twice before you start flirting back.
