The demonstrations in Moscow and about 50 other Russian cities on Dec. 10 were the largest since 1991 and seem to be a sign that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has badly misjudged the mood of the people.

In an exclusive exchange with LIGNET.com, Michael Hayden, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said he views the past few days of protests against the parliamentary elections as “remarkable” and says it appears that the United States may have “overworked” the Russian reset, giving to Russia a more powerful voice than is warranted.

Ambassador John Bolton; former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Peter Hoekstra, R-Mich.; former CIA National Intelligence officer Fritz Ermarth; and former National Security Council adviser Jack Caravelli
