"Ralph McGehee was a CIA agent for 25 years, active mainly in South-East Asia. During McGehee’s time in Vietnam, where he witnessed “American bombing and napalming of villages, and of the men, women and children who lived in them,” he began to wake up to the human atrocities being carried out by the CIA.
“The CIA is not now nor has it ever been a central intelligence agency. It is the covert action arm of the President’s foreign policy advisers. In that capacity it overthrows or supports foreign governments while reporting “intelligence” justifying those activities. It shapes its intelligence, even in such critical areas as Soviet nuclear weapons capability, to support presidential policy. Disinformation is a large part of its covert action responsibility, and the American people are the primary target of its lies.”"
