For the first time ever, New York Times bestselling author and former CIA operative Robert Baer tells the explosive story of how insiders believe a KGB mole rose to the highest ranks of the CIA.

One of the most accomplished agents in CIA history, Robert Baer was played by George Clooney in the film Syriana and is now regarded as one of the world’s foremost authorities on security and the Middle East.

He joins us to tell a thrilling true story of Russian espionage and American intelligence – with profound implications for the rise of Vladimir Putin and international relations with Russia.

In the aftermath of the Cold War, US intelligence caught three high-profile Russian spies. However, these arrests left major questions unanswered, and rumours have long swirled of another mole, often referred to as the Fourth Man.

Three pioneering female veterans of counterintelligence were tasked with unearthing him. With steadfast determination and expertise, they came to a shocking conclusion, one which had, and continues to harbour, dramatic consequences for American security. Offering a shocking new explanation for the rise of Putin’s Russia and the deteriorating relations between East and West, this is an unmissable livestream event not only for anyone concerned with the world in our time.
