Overview

The OPS Story approaches the Cold War with a well-considered balance of history, personal drama and experience. The violence, suspense and excitement are totally nonfiction. The communist quest for world domination aided by ideologues in America ranged worldwide. It was subtle and clandestine and cost many lives. Many of the Americans serving in the Office of Public Safety (OPS) died serving their country, defiled by communist propaganda and betrayed by self-serving politicians and ideologues.Adolph Saenz was an active participant in the Cold War struggle for over two decades and he recounts the history of United States' police assistance to foreign countries to help them combat communist aggression. He tells the story from a personal perspective, his own experience, and from a human side. As an American Hispanic from New Mexico, he blends well into the Latin American cultures that he works in. Despite the treachery of Cold War politics, he is an effective OPS officer and is accepted by his Latin American police and military counterparts as an ally. He is a constantly a potential target for terrorists and kidnappers, and his work is considered to be dangerous as per U.S. Government records. His replacement is kidnapped and assassinated by Marxist terrorists. His assignments take him to Bolivia and Che' Guevarra, to Uruguay and the Marxist Tupamaro terrorists, and to Colombia where he faces a deadly kidnapping cartel in Cali.

    The Politics of Counter-insurgency/Terrorism

    This is an entertaining and factual account by a former employee of a US Government agency carrying out US counter-insurgency policy in the 1960s and 70s. It provides an analysis, from the working level, of those political results based on media representations both accurate and inaccurate as well as purposefully misleading reports.This small agency, the Office of Public Safety, was the first overseas counter-insurgency and intelligence victim of the political correctness of the 70s. It describes the efforts of the new left in the US and the Italian and French Communist Parties to vilify this organization.The book is another in a series having been written by former US Government overseas workers working in or associated with the CIA and counter-insurgency efforts from the 1960s through the 90s.
