There's always Yoshiko Kawashima, a Manchu princess who became a secret agent serving Japan out of hatred for the Imperial Chinese government.

When the Chinese finally caught her and charged her with treason, she claimed that she was not guilty because as a Manchu royal, she owed no loyalty to China. They still executed her.

here's one guy that never ceases to amaze me

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juan_Pujol_García

Pujol was a Spanish national who landed a job spying for Nazi Germany before acting as a double agent in service to the British. He created an extensive network of spies in service to him that each got a pension on the Nazi payroll, only problem was none of these men existed, but were imaginary names to funnel money back to himself, with characters including a Venezuelan dock worker, a wine-drinking Scotsman, and a Swiss banker.

His intel reports to Germany were always either half-true or reported shortly after the information would've been useful to stop allied armies, but they kept him on the payroll and never noticed.

His biggest hoax was sending intel reports that the Allied invasion would be at Calais, with a diversionary force landing at Normandy, which the Germans accepted and kept Normandy lightly guarded for the landings.

Pujol then took the cash he was receiving from both the Axis and Allies and retired to Venezuela and ran a book store for the rest of his life.

Isaiah Oggins was the ultimate "useful idiot", a prime example to what the Party elites will do to the most idealistic commies once in power.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaiah_Oggins
Be American Jew
Be convinced communist traitor
Renounce your American citizenship and convince your wife to do the same
Get recruited by the KGB
Travel to France and Germany
Become "friends" with Tsarist groups and other White Russian emigres
Report all their activities to the Soviets like the communist rat you are
Many of these people get assassinated as a result of the espionage
Travel to China and do the same
KGB determines he knows too much at this point and is a liability
Even though he has been nothing except loyal to the Soviet Union
Gets captured by his KGB handlers
Gets sent to the gulag and forgotten there for more than a decade
Executed by Grigory Malenkov in 1947, on Stalin's orders
Used as a KGB lab rat to test the effectiveness of the poison curare
His wife never knew what happened to him until Soviet files were declassified in 1991
Serves him right.
This was karmic justice.

I believe all german spy landing on britain instantly went over.
Hell one of the agency worked more on keeping his job instead of any actually spying

Is derailing the thread using pic unrelated info to write a post a clever ironic way of doing it? I see it here all the time and I laugh thinking that's smart. Please tell me it is, because if it is autism my life is a lie

How is he better than the others?

He's not even an actor, just some random Australian model they picked up.
