A joint investigation by the Center for Investigative Reporting and the Los Angeles Times reveals that Robert Philip Hanssen, a confessed spy for the Soviet Union in the 1980s, headed up a domestic spying program for the FBI during that same decade."The role -- and historical irony -- of confessed traitor Hanssen has not been reported before..." The Times and CIR broke the story with the help of 2,815 pages of "formerly classified documents recently obtained under a federal Freedom of Information Act request submitted nearly 15 years ago."
