Eric O’Neill to join Francie Koehler on PI’s Declassified

Eric O’Neill was working for the FBI’s Special Surveillance Group as an investigative specialist and was assigned to work as Agent Hanssen’s assistant. Eric’s true role was to get close enough to Hanssen to learn as much as possible about what secret information Hanssen was turning over to a foreign government. The situation became the subject of Universal Studio’s movie, Breach, released to critical acclaim in 2007.
 Voice America Talk Radio Network, Internet broadcasting pioneer, producing and syndicating online audio and video, today announced that nationally acclaimed former FBI Investigative Specialist, Eric O’Neill will join Francie Koehler, host of “PI’s Declassified! on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel ( www.voiceamericavariety.com) Thursday, May 29, at 9 a.m. Pacific Time.
Double Agent Robert Phillip Hanssen, while working for the FBI, sold American secrets to the Russians for over two decades before he was exposed and arrested for treason. Hanssen’s confession prompted a representative from the US Department of Justice to describe this betrayal as “possibly the worst intelligence disaster in US history.” Tune in to hear “The Capture of a Spy” about Eric’s unique harrowing experience with his role in the capture of the most notorious spy in US history.
