The Nation

August 14, 1987

Marine Sgt. Clayton J. Lonetree had a drinking problem and once told a friend in Vienna that he had been followed from Moscow by a KGB agent who was pressing him for secrets, according to testimony in his spy trial. "He told me that he was in great trouble," said Jan Augustin, a West German who befriended the embassy guard in Vienna in the spring of 1986. "A KGB agent was putting him under pressure and trying to get information from him." Lonetree eventually went to the CIA station chief in Vienna, who was believed to have testified during a closed session earlier in the day.
