Circle of Treason script
Synopsis: A pair of CIA agents help bring down one of the agency's biggest moles, Aldrich Ames, in the 1990s.

Stombaugh is surrounded, his bag seized. The Zhiguli fires

up and tears away down the street. The KGB men force his

arms over his head, immobilizing him.

STOMBAUGH:

(rote)

My name is Paul Stombaugh, I am a

diplomatic attach. to the United

States Embassy

He is dragged to a waiting van, a KGB CAMERA CREW recording

the arrest on video.

EXT. LANGLEY - MORNING

Sandy pulls up to the security checkpoint off Dolley Madison

Blvd. She shows ID to the marine on duty. As she drives

through, a shift of perspective reveals the sprawling CIA

campus glimpsed through trees.

TITLES END.

INT. CIA - COMMUNICATIONS ROOM - MORNING

A TELEX prints out a restricted-handling cable... ‘IMMEDIATE

DIRECTOR / WNINTEL / CASE OFFICER STOMBAUGH ARRESTED 2130

HOURS EVENING OF 13 JUNE WHILE ON OPERATIONAL RUN TO MEET

GTVANQUISH...’

INT. CIA - 5TH FLOOR - BULLPEN - MORNING

Sandy comes through the open pen that serves the Soviet and

East European Division. It’s like a newsroom: busy with

intelligence officers and support staff, phones ringing,

typewriters and telexes rattling. She arrives at her

cubicle, where a crowd surrounds a counterintelligence

officer who’s entertaining them with a joke - Aldrich Ames.

RICK:

...and the Commissar says, of

course Adam and Eve are Communists!

They’re bare-ass naked with an

apple to share between them, and

they still think they’re living in

Paradise!

Laughter from the men, the room is mostly men. Rick catches

her eye and grins. Sandy smiles back, checking her morning

cable traffic - she likes this man. Across the room, PAUL

REDMOND, 44, bow-tie and shirtsleeves, steps from one of the

offices lining the pen.

REDMOND:

Rick, Sandy... upstairs in five.
