While the director of the newly formed FSB, Vladimir Putin ensures a young Russian is enrolled in MIT’s PhD program in electrical engineering and computer science. Upon graduation, Alexei Smirnov manages Putin’s top secret operation called The Grey Cardinal Files, a clandestine surveillance of key leaders in the West. Grey Cardinal leads to Russia entrapping a sitting US president, a secretary of State, a seasoned senator, and key leaders in the media. He also controls a key website that leaks classified information.Dr. Smirnov uses Grey Cardinal as a launchpad into a myriad of computer hacking operations, including entry into the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. This leads to cracking the 3-D security ribbon for new currency. Putin, enraged by the US attack on Syria, vows “consequences” for the United States. He orders Smirnov to conduct an attack on the US electrical power grid after the 2018 World Cup. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wesley Nelson.
