Easton is known for its CIA safe-houses, where defectors from Russia and China and elsewhere were, for decades, squirreled away for their own safety and for extensive debriefing of their secrets by agency handlers.

Word is, Russian intelligence eventually figured out where the spies formerly among them were being housed and, by the time two-timer Vitaly Yurchenko came along in 1985, CIA moved its safehouse ops away from prying ears to rural Virginia.

Needless to say, a few days in a “safe” spot is a good way to prepare for an expedition into the swamp.
