Katkov Mugshot2 SmallerI finally figured it out! I know how the FBI lured Mr. Katkov to the apartment where he was arrested. I know from what I’ve read in the literature and what my FBI case officers have told me that no intelligence officer – not GRU, KGB or CIA, et al – would ever be caught with classified documents on their person. Dead-drops are used for that, so this was a piece of the puzzle that has never made sense to me.

Katkov did not go to one of his other asset’s apartments to receive a classified document as reported in the press and in another book written by the FBI’s other controlled asset. (See Rich Man Poor Man.)

I reviewed audio tape 17-6, a conversation with my FBI case officer, Jim, on 12/18/87, where I asked him about the FBI’s other asset.  Jim said that there was something “special” about him and he was not a guy off the street. With all do respects to the Tinkerbell, the guy who wrote that other book about  Katkov, there was nothing special about him and he was a guy off the streets just like me.

Jim had to have been speaking about “Paul”. Tinkerbell mentions Paul in his book as the contact who was supplying him with confidential information to pass to Katkov. This has to be how the Bureau lured Mr. Katkov to Tinkerbell’s apartment: not to pick up a classified document, but to meet Paul. Apparently Mr. Kaktov was hot to meet Tinkerbell’s secret asset. So when katkov entered Tinkerbell’s apartment and was given a secret report, the FBI swooped in and caught Katkov “red-handed.” Makes perfect sense.

Here is where Katkov was arrested:

3874900On March 15, 2013, a guy named Anthony O’Dwyer, CEO of Plume Inc.,  called and said he was doing a movie about Mikhail Katkov’s other source. He said the guy is 89 years old. Anthony and I exchanged emails back and forth, and because of the information we exchanged, Mr. O’Dywer had this to say:  “This brings credibility to both your story and his. It verifies that you both existed and worked on this together while all the time not knowing each other.”

Anthony also said that this other source and I had the same “FBI handlers.”

Here’s the link to Plume’s movie: http://vimeo.com/62182591 (Please note this video has been taken down by O’Dwyer)

I sure hope this isn’t all of it. Like I said in my last post, I know who he is. For the time being, I’ll sit on that knowledge.

He states, “I was approached by the KGB.”  Mikhail Katkov was GRU not KGB. Another Soviet began courting me in June 1984. His name was Vladimir Bolochine, and he was most definitely KGB.

You gotta read the book. It’s fascinating:

3874900On March 15, 2013, from out of nowhere, certain new information came my way.  Because of this new information I now know the exact address of where Michael Katkov was arrested on December 17, 1987: 21 E. 10th Street, Apt 11D. I also now who the FBI’s other controlled asset was.

Very interesting.

By the way, below is where I lived in 1987. Way below.

Maybe David Petraeus would still be the DCI if  FBI agent Frederick Humphries had not gone to his congressman. Don’t you just hate it when some guys take it upon themselves to mess in national security?

I’m being factitious, of course, because that’s exactly what I did back when I was Roofman The Spy: I injected United States Customs into the Katkov Affair.

Here is my initial phone conversation with United States Customs:

I sure hope so. I haven’t added a new post since August and nothing about spies or spying since June. I’ve been busy with other writing projects.

I have noticed something interesting, though. On my websites,  http://roofmanthespy.com/  and  http://roofmanpansini.com/  I’ve been recording more traffic. And a good deal of that traffic comes from Russia. I suspect that a good deal of that traffic might have something to do with Mr. Aldrich Ames. (I still wish him well despite what he did.)

Now isn’t that interesting. And today is election day! We are so fortunate to live in such a great country.

On the audio in this chapter I refer  to true American patriots: that would be the members on the senate committee. I also say, “Not that asshole.” That would be the guy in the photo to the left.

Talking with my FBI case officer, Jim Knapp, about the Iran/Contra Hearings, he gave me insights into how things work when people testify before congressional committees. As it turned out, Agent Knapp was correct: North was convicted but got off on a technicality. His testimony before the senate committee was ruled inadmissible on appeal.

More than at any other time I lived through the Katkov Affair I felt like a tiny part of history. And I will be ever grateful to Agent Knapp for sharing this information with me.

This excerpt comes from Chapter 15:

We have been writing each other since the mid-90s. I actually feel sympathy for him because I know from experience how someone can get entrapped by Soviet/Russian intelligence.   He’s not the first, nor will he be the last, American intelligence officer to be recruited by a hostile intelligence service.

My latest communication from him is letter dated February 8, 2012. It is in reply to a letter I sent him in  January, 2012. I hadn’t written him in a few years, but I wanted him to know I published ROOFMAN as an ebook. If he had a way to read it, I would send him a free copy.

Here is his letter:

Here is a transcript of his letter:

Dear Roofman,

I was happy to get your (post) card and the news that you’ve got IT published.

The BoP (Bureau of Prisons) so far isn’t into the digital age far enough for me to be able to get it, but progress is underway and who knows what the future may hold? (Most BoP prisoners have access to a form of email now, though I have been barred for no apparent reason. Bernie Madoff has it though.)

Hope your reviewers are happy and asking for more!

Regards,

Rick

P.S. I like your Darwinian T shirt (So do I)

I will be sending Mr. Ames another letter soon, enclosing business cards along with a reminder to let me know when BoP finally goes digital.  I do hope his incarceration goes well. Like I said, I really feel for the poor guy.
