The US denies that it's talking about cyber disarmament and insists that it's just seeking increased Russian cooperation in fighting cybercrime. Of course it's hard to keep dangerous topics off the agenda once talks begin. Whether there are any real benefits to be gained by opening the door to disarmament talks remains to be seen.
Update: The Russians have been using the NYT for this kind of leak for months. And I've been skeptical at least as long.
Update: Ralph Peters agrees.
