A former Russian top spy says his agents helped the Russian government
steal nearly $ 500-million from the United Nations' oil-for-food
program in Iraq before the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.
Sergei Tretyakov, who defected to the United States in 2000 as a double
agent, says he oversaw an operation that helped Saddam's regime
manipulate the price of Iraqi oil sold under the program - and allow
Russia to skim profits.
