ClandesTime 140 – How the CIA Censored The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence

Published May 13th 2018 | Tags: , , , , ,

In 1974 former CIA officer Victor Marchetti and former State Department official John Marks published their book The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence. This week I examine a file in the JFK archives that details what the CIA censored from the book, and why. I look at several categories of CIA operations that were removed from the manuscript, and examine the doublethink of information that is in the public domain still being considered classified by its parent agency.

Note:  Due to recent technical difficulties there will be no video version or transcript of this podcast.  I will endeavor to fix this in the coming weeks.
