Hizballah vs CIA, Spy v. Spy, and Mole v Mole.

Last Week, with much fanfare, Hizballah announced it had rolled up a CIA spy ring in its organization.

AP: Hezbollah unravels CIA spy network in Lebanon.

Michael Totten, who is always worth paying attention to, notes an interesting argument that this announcement reveals more weakness about Hezbollah and its ability to be compromised by foreign agents than it does about Hizballah's counterintelligence prowess.

I'm rather curious myself as to whether Hizballah's alleged agent at the FBI and CIA, Nadia Prouty, was a factor in providing information and intel to Hizballah that led to them detecting and rolling up the CIA spy ring.
