Why Truman Soured on the CIA
Dear Friend of America's Survival,
President Harry Truman, a Democrat, soured on the CIA, saying in a column, "Limit CIA role to Intelligence," that, "I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations. Some of the complications and embarrassment I think we have experienced are in part attributable to the fact that this quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue—and a subject for cold war enemy propaganda."
With all the nonsense put out by Communist propaganda about "Yankee imperialism," "exploitive capitalism," "war-mongering," "monopolists," in their name-calling assault on the West, the last thing we needed was for the CIA to be seized upon as something akin to a subverting influence in the affairs of other people.
Today, it is "a subverting influence" in the affairs of the American people!
For America's Survival,
