With the assistance of a Polish Jew, Victor Grayevski, the Mossad acquires a copy of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev’s speech which had condemmed his predecessor Josef Stalin to Communist leaders. In an attempt to bolster relations between Israel and the newly formed CIA, the Mossad shares the speech with the Americans, strengthening their reputation as a formidable intelligence resource. The speech is leaked and published in the New York Times causing a backlash in the Communist world.
