Spend any amount of time attending to Kremlin trolls and you'll notice the honeypots: accounts of possibly attractive women who just happen to have an interest in rather specific issues or types of people. When I speak of there being a counter-intelligence angle to combatting the Kremlin's agents, virtual and otherwise, this is partly what I am referring to.

And as is the case with so much of Kremlin activity online, exposure is lethal. So with that, I invite you to read a story from last summer, regarding a honeypot and "her" not-so-successful encounter with a retired US Navy SEAL: Catfish 101, by Joel Lambert.
