File this under "you can't make this up." What follows is a video of Anna Chapman, the hot Russian spy recently arrested by the FBI.

In this 11-minute video, we see what appears to be a very charming (and genuine) young woman discussing her plans for a new Internet startup.

Watch (trust me, it won't be painful) and then remember she's hiding a very dark secret. It's almost surreal.

According to the British Mail, her real name is Anya Kuschenko.

  • the hot Russian spy...

    So what happened to innocent until proven guilty? Or was that "right" removed for our safety as well?

      That whole mentality is what let's killers back onto the street.

        @tbensen@... <br><br>That mentality is the basis for a just society, something the US was supposed to be when "innocent until proven guilty" was placed in our constitution.

        And your mentality is what puts innocent people in jail for crimes they didn't commit

        As opposed to the putting innocent people on death row thing?

        It's really a simple idea. She and her associates are innocent until proven guilty, hence the amount of time it took to actually catch them. Remember they were caught in the act of espionage, there are specific laws regarding this very dangerous crime.

        As for any constitutional rights, I believe from what has been published their rights have been upheld. They were lawfully incarcerated, not required to incriminate themselves, no cruel or unusual punishments etc.

        I hate to sound like a prude, but it seems the concern for their rights is more linked to the obvious sex appeal she presents. I doubt there would be such a call to arms if she looked like Rosa Kleb (look up James Bond films, she was in From Russia With Love, not the hottie). Although I would fight to protect your right to hop in bed with Ana Chapman, and mine, having been a soldier her activities make my skin crawl. Thinking that if her aims were to collect and disperse data that involved operations I was on makes it more detestable to me. The idea that we can't prove that anyone died because of her doesn't mitigate that danger.

      Just because that is the basis and constraint of our law doesn't dispense with our individual right to form our own conclusions.

      That "right" is for citizen of the United States moron! We are a nation of laws and we don't subject non-citizens to those laws nor to the rights that are reserved for our citizens. Declare her a enemy combatant/spy and waterboard her till we get something useful. After that sell her to the Israelis. They know what to do with her.

        @mshepherd Shame on you. You are a good example of what's wrong with people in the USA today.

        @mshepherd

        with very few exceptions, the rights guaranteed by the constitution are rights guaranteed by virtue of being human, citizenship is irrelevant.

        however, the constitution is specifically limitations on government actions, and the supreme court has ruled that certain rights will be reserved for citizens in good standing, for example, the right to keep and bear arms is specifically not extended to enemy combatants who are captured and detained.

  • What "dark" secret? Countries all spy on each other, it is healthy for all

    -- because <b>otherwise "hawks" in each country would much more tend to prevail in the governments about international relations or even in matters of applying force in difficult situations.</b>

    Knowing that there are spies puts some limits on people's craziness.
    <br><br>There are a lot of spies in both Russia and USA, other countries, to counterbalance each other for this goal.

  • My suspicions about all the Zdnet viewers here

    I can guess that every male viewing this post had his face leaning on his left hand, and he was smiling as he watched this video, and wasn't listening to a word she said.

  • Is she realy a spy or is it just dirty politics? She looks like a patsy (NT

  • Davis calm down . . .

    Geez - you don't need to get all sweaty over this woman.
    I will grant you she is very charming, but if the charges against her proven in court she's toast. After getting out of jail she will be deported and won't ever get a visa into a western country for the rest of her life.
    And drop the "superspy" stuff OK? Unless it's a gag.
    None of these people did squat.

    At the time the great Russian dissident singer Vladimir Visocky sang: The spy woman with nice body and rotten soul. The art of spying, using beautiful girls is as old as the world. But KGB added a Russian precision in it. They build a special spy school near Moscow where they educated young beautiful girls in the art seduction. After the graduation all girls have been send abroad to implement in practice their knowledge.

  • She is not THAT hot...

    She is comely, for sure, but she is only HOT for us nerds that don't go out and date!
    Roque Mocan
  • I beg to differ on HOW hot she is, Roque...

    While I'm also "one of those nerds who gets very few dates," I'm also a guy who's looked at literally thousands of women in my lifetime, and I'd rate her an easy 9, assuming she wasn't heavily made up (and it didn't appear she was).

    She had an extremely well-proportioned face for beauty, bright, expressive eyes of a shade just between blue and green that many guys find quite attractive, and although red hair -- especially with dark roots -- is far from my first choice, she could likely charm me into doing anything. Assuming she IS guilty of espionage (and I'm certainly NOT, as I know our government gets plenty of things WRONG), her beauty quite likely IS a big part of why she was where she was, doing what she was.

    On that point, even our own CIA would likely admit they have similar operations going on in Russia, and they probably even have a similar program. America may not have a "special school" where they grab young girls in their teens and groom them to be beautiful super-spies, but you can very well bet that the CIA and similar organizations have folks on college campuses throughout America looking for beautiful young ladies with certain skills and attributes who fit certain profiles, and who they likely approach near, or at graduation with offers of employment.

    Consider the fact that the spy Dick Cheney "outed" was in her late 40s and still DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, then consider she'd been IN the CIA for something like 25 years at that point, and think of all the male manipulations she could have participated in during that time, with those looks. The fact that she was married to a U.S. Ambassador (who knows what he was when they got married?) doesn't matter, because anything she did "in the line of duty" wasn't any sort of betrayal of her marriage in THAT line of work.

    I hope she's NOT guilty, just because she seems so nice... but who knows? I just hope the truth comes out and the trial(s) are fair. As far as the Constitutional rights of being innocent until proved guilty go, those apply to ANYONE arrested and charged under the American system justice. G.W. Bush's new "enemy combatat INVENTION" was his way of usurping not only our Constitution, but also rules of the Geneva Convention, but don't get me started on him... I don't want to get banned from these talkbacks.
