PACEPA, ION

The most senior Eastern Bloc intelligence officer ever to defect to the West, Lt. Gen. Ion Pacepa headed Romania’s Departmentule Informatii Externe until he walked into the U.S.  embassy in Bonn in July 1978 and requested political asylum. After he had been debriefed, he married the  Central Intelligence Agency handler responsible for his resettlement.
