NBC ran a couple of spy stories: Keith Miller (along with Jim Sciutto, subscription required, at ABC) covered the plight of KGB defector Alexander Litvinenko. He is in a London hospital, believed poisoned at a sushi restaurant. Litvinenko is the author of Blowing Up Russia, which alleges that President Vladimir Putin framed Chechen separatists for terrorist explosions in Moscow that helped the law-and-order Putin get elected. Litvinenko was also on the trail of the assassins of Moscow investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya.
Then NBC's Lisa Myers told us about 400 separate suspected schemes to funnel hi-tech secrets to China. Some of it is official spying by the People's Republic to build military missiles and jets. Some is by freelancers looking for microchips.
