Russia’s top intelligence official: US had known about exact date of Georgia’s aggression
In an interview with the RIA News Agency aired on Thursday, Russia’s top intelligence official said that the United States had known about an exact date of Georgia’s aggression against South Ossetia. According to him, Tbilisi got Washington’s nod for the military operations in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The top official pointed to the fact that the beginning of August saw US NAVY chief of staff Garry Roughhead annul his trip to Russia, which if fulfilled, could have coincided with the culmination of hostilities in South Ossetia from 10 to 14 August.
