Need A Good Laugh? Here's My Translation of CIA "Spy Master's" Book

The other day I ran across a promotion of a reprinted book, that, if it weren't so diabolically evil would be howlingly hilarious. It was Allen Dulles's book "The Craft of Intelligence: America's Legendary Spy Master on the Fundamentals of Intelligence Gathering For A Free World." Let me translate the title from CIA double-speak to plain truth for you: "The Purpose of the CIA: To Give Safe Haven To Nazis, To Brainwash American Citizens, To Subvert Freedom Of The Press and Free Speech, and To Overthrow Duly Elected Leaders For A Neo-Fascist World."

The publisher's synopsis of the book is a devilish hoot--"...[Dulles] explains how the Soviet Security State recruited operatives and planted 'illegals' in foreign countries." Translation--The Soviets learned this technique from us when we sent fake defectors like Lee Harvey Oswald over to Russia.

Publisher--"[Dulles] spells out...the philosophy and role of intelligence in a free society threatened by global conspiracies." Translation--The philosophy and role of the CIA is to serve its military-defense contractor masters in propagating unjust wars and suppressing dissent. Domestic conspiracies, like murdering a US president and covering it up, are sometimes necessary to preserve the power of the security state.

Publisher--"Dulles also [denies] that the 1961 [Bay of Pigs] invasion was based on a CIA estimate that a popular Cuban uprising would ensue." Translation--We knew the invasion would fail, but we went ahead anyway to embarrass the new president and show him who was boss.

Publisher--"This is a book for readers who seek wider understanding of the contribution of intelligence to our national security." Translation--This is a book to keep you in the dark about the atrocities committed by intelligence in the name of national security.

Publisher--"When Dulles died...President Nixon remarked, " the nature of his task, his achievements were known only to a few." Translation--What Nixon meant was, it's a damn good thing his achievements were known only to a few of us.

His achievements may have only been known by a few, but the disastrous consequences of Dulles' dirty actions have been felt literally by billions, across many decades. He and his brother John Foster Dulles rank with the worst and most vile criminals of all time!
