CIA

The CIA's Amorality

"In my en years with the Agency I only recall one case of many hundreds where a man who had joined the Agency felt some scruples about the activities he was asked to carry on."

-- Allen Dulles, CIA Director, The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence, p. 244

Jim Garrison on the CIA

"The CIA could not face up to the American people and admit that its former employees had conspired to assassinate the President; so from the moment Kennedy's heart stopped beating, the Agency attempted to sweep the whole conspiracy under the rug."

-- Jim Garrison

CIA and the Wire Services

"PAO now has relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation. This has helped turn some "intelligence failure" stories into "intelligence success" stories ... In many instances, we have persuaded reporters to postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories"

-- From a 1991 document obtained by Ralph McGehee through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regarding the operations of the CIA's Public Affairs Office (PAO)

Americans cannot teach democracy...

"Americans cannot teach democracy to the world until they restore their own."

-- William Greider, journalist and author

Central America was 'never ours to lose'

"The United States has to realize it does not own Central America or any other part of the world, and that people have a right to shape their own destiny, to choose the type of government they want. We don't lose Cuba, we don't lose Nicaragua, because they were never ours to lose."

-- Sister Ita Ford, one of four U.S. churchwomen slain by Salvadoran soldiers in 1980
