~  In 1952, a tiny listening device was found hidden in the American Ambassador's residence in Moscow.  It was beneath the beak of the bald eagle in a carving of the Great Seal of the United States that had been hanging behind the desk since 1945.  It had been presented as a token of friendship by a group of Soviet schoolchildren.
