Botched CIA Communications System Helped Blow Cover of Chinese Agents – Foreign Policy
the interim system and the main covert communication platform used in China at this time were supposed to be clearly separated. In theory, if the interim system were discovered or turned over to Chinese intelligence, people using the main system would still be protected—and there would be no way to trace the communication back to the CIA.

“While there were no physical casualties from the pipeline explosion, there was significant damage to the Soviet economy.”
