Cold Warriors David Major and Oleg Kalugin Partner Up for An Intriguing Tour
The two ex-snoops charge $55 a head to share tales of treachery while pointing out some 40 infamous sites, including the mailbox on which CIA turncoat Aldrich Ames scratched coded signals to his Soviet handlers and the fence near the Russian embassy over which spy Edwin Moore tossed classified documents. "Espionage isn't something that comes out of Hollywood; it goes on right in your backyard," says Major, 57, whose biggest case was the 1985 arrest of John Walker, a naval warrant officer turned spy who was monitored by Kalugin. Retired in 1994 after 24 years at the FBI, Major co-founded a counterespionage training firm and began taking clients on informal tours of his old haunts. "And they would just go, 'Wow!' " he recalls. "I thought, why not make this available to the public?"
He recruited Kalugin, a lecturer at his firm, and together they launched the nearly three-hour, semimonthly tour. One thing they don't worry about: finding new sites to add to the itinerary. "Spying is alive and well," says Major, who worked with but never suspected recently nabbed FBI spy Robert Hanssen. "As we speak, someone somewhere is passing information." And looking over their shoulder for a big tour bus.
