Washington Post staff writer Susan Schmidt reports in an article titled, “Physicist’s Case Examined for Link to Alleged Spy.” Excerpt:

FBI inspectors are now poring over the activities of [former Supervisory Special Agent James J.] Smith’s squad. According to sources with knowledge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office, two other agents who worked with the Chinese counterintelligence unit failed polygraph examinations in the past several years and were assigned less sensitive duties. One of the agents was put on administrative leave and has left the bureau, the sources said.
