Sandy Grimes helped convict Ames

It was a chaotic period of CIA history, with Officer Grimes along with a few colleagues investigating and uncovering the treasonous behavior of Aldrich Ames. It was a detailed and methodical process, since Ames was a counterintelligence officer well versed in the art of spy craft. Come to the talk at the International Spy Museum and hear Sandy Grimes reveal how she and her team uncovered Ames' well-hidden methods of spying for the Soviet Union.
