Site Allegedly Exposes British Secret Agents

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:08 pm

The U.K. Foreign Office is slamming an anti-secrecy activist who listed online alleged spies and secret agents.

New York-based activist John Young named 276 alleged MI6 agents–including former Liberal Democrat leader Paddy Ashdown–on his Cryptome Web site over the weekend. The list claims Ashdown was an MI6 agent in Geneva in the 1970s.

It is not the first time such information has been published on the Internet, and Foreign Office policy is to neither confirm nor deny the accuracy of such lists. But a Foreign Office representative slammed its publication for potentially putting lives in danger.
