Questions asked over what exactly the alleged US spy ring managed to achieve.

    The round-up of 10 suspected spies in the United States is causing as much confusion as consternation, with many questioning why so many people spying for so long apparently produced so little in the way of intelligence.

    But according to experts, the information they sought was readily available.
