The Spy Who Was Left Behind

Speaker: Michael Pullara, Author

Fascinating. Overwhelming. Intriguing. Words used to describe the story of international espionage as told by Texas trial lawyer Michael Pullara. The 1993 murder of real CIA officer Freddie Woodruff by KGB agents in Russia and the extensive cover-up that followed in Washington and in Moscow will give you chills - and a very timely look at the world’s intelligence operations.
