Now his reputation is being called into question - was he courageous, as is widely believed, or was he merely a philanderer and opportunist? At the close of the investigation, everyone at the Agency will confront some uncomfortable truths from their own past and learn to treat certain ordinary human failings with a large helping of charity and compassion.
