...Yeah, this sounds like the problem was that there weren't enough

Jim, you're a journalist--any chance a story about Russian security trying
to punish whistleblowers will fly here?   Possibly with a mention of the
whistleblowers themselves? -- you know the subtleties of these things; I
take your word for it that a little bit of fame is a greater protection
than risk...

After all, the US is currently depending on Russian rocket technology
exclusively for our manned efforts.  Doesn't that make this a US strategic
problem as well?
