Inside the CIA
Program #STOJ003. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 09, 1989.The CIA, formed in 1947, is the covert arm of U.S. foreign policy. Its $30 billion budget is secret. The CIA's very first operations were to break up strikes and disrupt democratic elections in France and Italy. At about the same time, the Agency protected and hired a number of notorious high-ranking ex-Nazis. Construction of the historical record has been sketchy at best. Over the years, many Agency documents have simply disappeared. Allegations of CIA involvement with drug trafficking have persisted but have been difficult to prove. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
