WASHINGTON -- Russia denied Friday that its Foreign Intelligence Service provided
information on U.S. troop movements and plans to attack Baghdad during the 2003
invasion of Iraq.
A Foreign Intelligence Service spokesman called the allegations false and added
that "similar, baseless accusations concerning Russia's intelligence have
been made more than once." A duty officer in his department said the service
doesn't believe it's "necessary to comment on such fabrications."
