Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"In 1967 the magazine Ramparts ran an expose revealing that the Central Intelligence Agency had been secretly funding and managing a wide range of citizen front groups intended to counter communist influence around the world. In addition to embarrassing prominent individuals caught up, wittingly or unwittingly, in the secret superpower struggle for hearts and minds, the revelations of 1967 were one of the worst operational disasters in the history of American intelligence and presaged a series of public scandals from which the CIA's reputation has arguably never recovered." "CIA official Frank Wisner called the operation his "mighty Wurlitzer," on which he could play any propaganda tune. In this book, Hugh Wilford provides the first comprehensive account of the clandestine relationship between the CIA and its front organizations.
