U.S. Agrees to Pay $3 Million to Ex-DEA Agent in 15-Year-Old CIA Spying Case
It took former DEA agent Richard Horn 15 years to finally win his case against the CIA for spying on him, in part because intelligence officials lied about the covert status of one of their operatives. Horn, who was stationed in Burma in the early 1990s, claimed CIA officer and Rangoon station chief Arthur M. Brown conspired with diplomat Franklin Huddle Jr. to plant a listening device in Horn’s residence and relay information back to superiors in Washington. The case was held up in federal court until this week, when U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth approved a settlement that requires the U.S. government to pay Horn $3 million.
