Map­ping the his­tory of es­pi­onage in Wash­ing­ton.

The Washington Post Sunday - - OUTLOOK - text by Robert Wal­lace and H. Keith Mel­ton graphic by Chiqui Este­ban

Mys­tery and in­trigue are run­ning wild in the cap­i­tal these days. Se­cret con­ver­sa­tions with dan­ger­ous diplo­mats, ex­plo­sive for­eign dossiers on Amer­i­can lead­ers, hand­wring­ing over na­tional se­cu­rity and leaky in­tel­li­gence. If you dip into our new book, “Spy Sites of Wash­ing­ton, DC,” you will find that sneak­ing, ly­ing and skull­dug­gery are as old as the repub­lic it­self. And our re­gion is full of the traces: ho­tels and parks and sa­loons and em­bassies and gov­ern­ment of­fices where the de­ceit­ful and dis­loyal got up to their an­tics. Here is a sam­pling of sites where our na­tion’s es­pi­onage his­tory has played out.
