Correct response: Who is Kim Philby?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Kim Philby was a famous British intelligence officer who, while serving as the chief British liaison with American intelligence, was also a Soviet double agent. While he resigned from MI6 in 1951 after two British diplomats defected to the Soviet Union and was exonerated in 1955, his double-agent status was revealed in 1963 as part of the Cambridge Five, a Soviet spy ring who had passed information to the Soviet Union. Philby then defected to the Soviet Union himself and lived there until his death in the late ’80s.
