Video: FBI creates overseas student spy movie: The story of Glenn Shriver

The Federal Bureau of Investigations has created a movie, Game of Pawns, dramatising the story of Glenn Shriver to warn US college students about foreign spies. The video aims to educate students on “the dangers of knowingly or unknowingly getting caught up in espionage activities” but has attracted criticism for its tone and limited budget. The YouTube video focussed on the story of former college student Glenn Shriver. Shriver was groomed by Chinese government officials to transmit classified US information while studying in Shanghai. Shriver was sentenced to 48 months in prison in 2010. Credit: Youtube/The Federal Bureau of Intelligence
