The article presents passages from a public record on Harry Dexter White, who was appointed to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The report cited the case of White as an example of how successful espionage agents had been in penetrating the U.S. government and how lax the government was when encountered with such a problem. The report also pointed out that the administration of then U.S. President Harry Truman was put on notice early on that there were two spy rings operating within the government.
