Jack Devine’s latest book Spymaster’s Prism begins with a very fitting quote from Abdur Rahman Khan who is considered the founder of modern Afghanistan. 

“My Last Words to you my son and successor… Never Trust the Russians”

Devine’s latest book makes no secret that he, and more importantly the Russian intelligence community under President Putin, believes that the Cold War never ended. And moreover, when it comes to the U.S., the Russians have taken the next step in gathering intelligence, which is to act on it. 

First, they interfered with the 2016 presidential elections. Furthermore, the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the presidential campaign headquarters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton were all hacked.
