Biography assessment rating comment[edit]

The article may be improved by following the WikiProject Biography 11 easy steps to producing at least a B article. -- Jreferee 21:13, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

This page is full of errors and I have removed some of them:

In the book SPY HANDLER by Cherkashin, the author states that Nosenko really was a defector and that the CIA mishandled him badly.


Removed: References to Angleton as responsible for hostile interrogation: This was the responsibility of the soviet-russia (SR) division and is claim that I now make supported by autobiography of Richard Helms (2002), Tennent Bagley (2007) and HSCA testimonies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.138.134.129 (talk) 06:55, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Bad intro[edit]

The intro doesn't give proper context. What are the "Family Jewels"... what claims did he make...? The reader has no idea what the situation is. Must be rewritten. Malick78 (talk) 11:14, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Movie citation[edit]

I suspect that this is the movie that folks are discussing in this article: [ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092277/ Yuri Nosenko, KGB] This is an IMDB reference to a made for TV movie from 1986 described as the true-life story of Yuri Nosenko, a top Soviet KGB agent who defected to the West at the height of the Cold War in 1962.

WP article needed on Bagley[edit]

I don't have time to do so at present, but somebody should create at least a stub and preferably an article about Tennent H. "Pete" Bagley, who played a central role in this story and is a noted author and intelligence figure in his own right. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.50.7.179 (talk) 23:06, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Second paragraph of intro presents Bagley contention as fact[edit]

In Bagley's book Spymaster, he claims that Nosenko was really a fake defector. This is presented in the introduction as though it were a fact, even though he is pretty much alone in thinking this, and had been grinding that particular ax for the last 50 years of his life. The discussion should be moved out of the intro and put under "Concerns that Nosenko was a double agent." It should also be toned done and made clear what Bagley says and what is known. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:BC80:E199:E53D:1270:552F:8EF0 (talk) 05:36, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

I have moved the paragraph as you have suggested. As for the rest, you are welcome to edit the article yourself. - Location (talk) 05:58, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
