Foreign and Military Intelligence: The Secret History of the CIA and Covert Action

eBook (PDF), 658 Pages
Price: $12.50
Recent Presidents have justified secrecy on the basis of "national security." The Bay of Pigs fiasco, the secret war in Laos, the secret bombing of Cambodia, the anti-Allende activities in Chile, the Watergate affair, were all instances of the use of power cloaked in secrecy which, when revealed, provoked widespread popular disapproval. The Church Committee emerged out of allegations of abuse and improper activities by the intelligence agencies of the United States. This first book of their report provides details on the intelligence agencies of the U.S., particularly the CIA and their covert action programs. The Committee's investigation documented a number of actions committed in the name of "national security" that were inconsistent with declared policy and the law. Hearings were held and the committee issued reports on alleged assassination plots, covert action in Chile and the interception of domestic communications by the National Security Agency (NSA).
