Read full description of the books:
Having encountered McGehee speaking in various political documentaries and being concerned about our government's spy apparatus, I picked this up from the sale shelves of Evanston's Amarynth Bookstore.
Arranged along a narrative autobiographical framework, this memoir elucidates the thesis that the CIA, created as an objective information-gathering office in service to the president, has long been at odds with its ostensible purpose. Rather than reporting facts, its primary function has been to try to create them. In the case of disinformation campaigns this has often led to one set of CIA analysts reporting as fact what operatives in the CIA have fabricated, lies that get passed upstream to policymakers--a phenomenon characteristic, as McGehee documents, of United States activity in Southeast Asia during the period of the fifties, sixties and seventies when he was involved there.
Attached to this book is an appendix detailing the process whereby the text was censored by the CIA. That should be read prior to reading the book itself.
