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.Was this review helpful?
