Former CIA analyst Larry Wu-tai Chin offered to become a double agent when FBI agents confronted him with the allegations that he spied for China for more than 30 years, the Washington Post reported. Citing a court document filed by federal prosecutors, the newspaper reported that when agents arrested Chin on Nov. 23, they told him he would "have to disclose everything that had occurred" during his alleged spying before authorities would decide whether to accept his offer. Chin, 63, who retired from the CIA in 1981, is charged with spying for the Chinese from 1952. When agents confronted Chen, he offered to act as a double agent, according to court documents, the Post said.
