Corbett • 08/30/2015 •
Diplomat, spy, Wall Street lawyer, philanderer, government overthrow specialist, Nazi collaborator, MKULTRA overlord, presidential assassin. This week on the Corbett Report podcast: meet Allen Dulles, fascist spymaster.
Peter Dale Scott, a former Canadian diplomat and Professor of English at the University of California, Berkeley, is a poet, writer, and researcher. His diplomatic service from 1957 to 1961 included two years of work at UN conferences and the UN General Assembly, and two years in Poland.
His most recent political books are The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America (2007), The War Conspiracy: JFK, 9/11 and the Deep Politics of War (2008), American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan (2010), and The American Deep State: Wall Street, Big Oil, and the Attack on U.S. Democracy (2014). He is also a poet, and in 2002 received the Lannan Poetry Award.
His books have been translated into six languages, and his articles and poems have been translated into twenty. The former U.S. poet laureate Robert Hass has written (Agni, 31/32, p. 335) that "Coming to Jakarta is the most important political poem to appear in the English language in a very long time."

Break the CIA in Two By Ray McGovern
December 22, 2009
Editor’s Note: Exactly 46 years ago, President Harry Truman looked back on the still-young CIA, which he had helped create, and was alarmed at how its original purpose – to provide unvarnished information to top policymakers – was being perverted by the agency’s growing role in covert operations.
Nearly a half century since Truman’s warning, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern marvels at Truman’s prescience and suggests that the only answer today is to separate out – and protect – the agency’s core analytical function:
After the CIA-led fiasco at the Bay of Pigs in April 1961, President John Kennedy was quoted as saying he wanted to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” I can understand his anger, but a thousand is probably too many.
Better is a Solomon solution; divide the CIA in two. That way we can throw out the bath water and keep the baby.
This report is based on a short excerpt from a lecture given by Allen W. Dulles, about two weeks after the JFK assassination in Cambridge, MA and aired by WHDH Public Affairs radio at a Harvard Law School Forum. The subject was: The Role of Intelligence in Policy Making. Here, former Deputy Director of Central Intelligence (1951-1953) and former Director of Central Intelligence (1953-1961), Allen W. Dulles presents what I think are the movements of a theme we heard in precise recapitulation after 9/11 - namely that intelligence failures led to: the attack on Pearl Harbor, the unforeseen rise of German and Japanese military power of bad intent, and the Cold War against the "Communist menace." Given this historical background, it appears that elements of the 9/11 official story are simply the repetition of a previously and successfully used tactic of claiming intelligence failures after calamitous events and then using that claim as an excuse and as the rational for "intelligence reforms."
