Mr. Weiser talked about his book, A Secret Life: The Polish Officer, His Cover Mission, and the Price He Paid for His Country, published by PublicAffairs. He described the life of Ryszard Kuklinski, a colonel in the Polish Army who began spying for the U.S. on the Soviet Union during the 1970s. He supplied the CIA with information about the upcoming Russian crackdown on Poland’s Solidarity movement during the Cold War. Joining the author are Aris Pappas, and David Forden, two men who worked very closely with Colonel Kuklinski. After their presentations the participants answered audience members' questions. close
