Summary:

A man brandishing the passport of CIA-employee-turned-Soviet-defector Edward Lee Howard at a Moscow hotel tried to persuade two U.S. embassy workers to help him reach a top embassy official, according to documents in a file on Howard kept by the Federal Bureau of Intelligence. Howard had dodged FBI surveillance in leaving the U.S. several years earlier.

Notes:

Howard’s FBI file was posted by Muckrock after being obtained in response to a FOIA request.
