Ten Russian intelligence officers have been arrested for allegedly serving as illegal agents of the Russian government in the United States, the Justice Department said Monday.

Eight of 10 were arrested Sunday for allegedly carrying out long-term, deep cover assignments in the United States on behalf of Russia.

Two others were arrested for allegedly participating in the same Russian intelligence program within the United States.

Each of the 10 was charged with conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison on conviction.

The cases were filed in U.S. District Court for the southern district of New York.

It's an advertising ploy for the upcoming Angelina Jolie movie Salt.

If the article had left out the Intelligence part and just stated Russian agents, I might have agreed with you. :D

FBI works for Obama now. Perhaps Wei is a member of the black panthers, and therefore untouchable.

One of the spies was apparently a real stunner. From the NY Post:

She came from Russia, with love.

The sexy suspected spy who the feds say was sent to New York to gather intel on the United States adored the American way of life and took full advantage of it -- for business and pleasure.

"Anna Chapman" sidled up to power players while hobnobbing at society functions, charity events and book openings in slinky designer outfits. It was her apparent way of collecting information to send back to her native Russia -- but she also enjoyed going out clubbing, blogging and seeing the sights.

During her two years in the Big Apple, she frequented New York hotspots like the Thompson Hotel, Greenhouse and Juliet -- and even spent some time visiting the Statue of Liberty.

Why didn't I take that CIA job offer again?

I'll bet gathering intelligence must have been easy as hell for her.
