Former spy Hanssen’s house is on the market – USA Today
VIENNA, Va. — Growing up around Washington was an interesting experience, though I did not quite realize it at the time.
I am sure my family and friends from the Wolf Trap Elementary school district in and near Vienna will be interested to know that the house the Robert Hanssen lived in is up for sale, over 10 years after his arrest for espionage. The 5 bedroom house at 9414 Talisman Drive could be yours for $725,000. I don’t know why the government did not confiscate it, but then again, they gave that traitor a sweetheart deal and he went deaf and dumb once it was sealed. Presumably, all the bugs, recording devices (including the ones he set up to record himself and his wife) have been removed.
Hanssen got busted about a month after I moved out of Vienna. A few years after I moved out of the Riverhouse complex in Pentagon City, Russian nationals got arrested for spying in the building that my friend Fritz had just moved out of the month before. I just assume that someone will be busted after I move out of my condo complex in Alexandria’s West End.
As far as I know, there have not been any espionage arrests in my original hometown of Morris Township, NJ or in State College and Hazleton, Pa.* where I lived while at Penn State…yet.
*Mafia arrests, on the other hand, are highly probable
