Samir’s Selection 04/04/2016 (p.m.)

  • [Philby] advises his audience that they need to take care of the political as well as physical health of any agents they run.

    Philby finishes with one piece of advice to the spies gathered before him that had served him well: never confess.

    “If they confront you with a document with your own handwriting then it’s a forgery – just deny everything…

    “They interrogated me to break my nerve and force me to confess.

    “And all I had to do really was keep my nerve. So my advice to you is to tell all your agents that they are never to confess.”
