Ex-US Navy officer who spied for Soviets dies in prison

John Walker Jr. finally keels over. The man did a *lot* of damage; he basically made US Navy communications transparent to the Soviets in the 70’s and early 80’s.

    I wouldn’t have minded this guy being caned to death over a period of 5 years or so.

    Saves me the trouble of being picked up for commiting a felony if he ever got out. He effected my Navy career twice and I can’t say how or why. One of those “Burn Eyes Before Reading” things.

      He effected a *lot* of careers. Like the crew of the USS Pueblo.

    Probably would have been a great candidate for the ‘just dissappeared’ option. Sends the right message in its own way.

    Good f’ing riddance.

    Johnny Walker Red. Rumor has it that he and Ames both passed lie-detector tests–one more strike against the things.
