Dead Drop: November 9

YOU TOO CAN LEARN HOW TO BELL THE CAT: In recent weeks we have marveled at how a group of self-described“gifted nerds” has exposed the deadly and oft-times dumb work of Russian intelligence agents.  The folks at Bellingcat have identified the true names of GRU officers who attempted to murder Sergei Skripal in the U.K. and have exposed all manner of malfeasance on the part of Putin’s troops.  Over the next few months Bellingcat is holding workshops in Europe and the United States where they will teach participants how to harness the methodologies they have employed so successfully.  Five-day workshops are planned for Berlin, London, Washington, DC, and Amsterdam.  But it doesn’t come cheap.  The sessions are listed for £1800 – which by our calculations converts to about $2340.
