The oversight committees in Congress supported an exponential growth of the Agency between 1949 and 1953 and were fully aware of the disproportionate share (almost two-thirds) of Agency resources and personnel going to covert actionreferred to then as Cold War activitiesrather than to such intelligence functions as espionage and analysisLawrence: University Press of Kansas, 2006The section on the Iraq coup of 1958 is arguably the strongest of part 2.CIA officials are apparently still embarrassed by their inability to foresee this event, since they refuse to declassify how Dulles responded to a question on whether CIA had notice of the coup in Iraq (pAs the book progresses, Barrett carefully illustrates how Congress became increasingly attentive to the CIA with the passage of time.The first director of central intelligence (DCI), who headed the agency, had just ten documented visits to Capitol Hill a year (pEven with the burgeoning resources going to covert action, in 1951 a congressman from Wisconsin, who was not a member of the oversight subcommittees, managed to get a public amendment attached to the foreign aid bill authorizing $100 million to assist underground liberation movements in communist countrieswe will have nothing but continued anxiety about the Central Intelligence Agency and its widespread activities, he declared (pOpen to the public .b32519734; held Book English University of Adelaide
The documents that Barrett unearthed on Dulles are equally disturbing, shattering the mystique that Dulles cultivated in the 1950s.During a conversation in 1956, Dulles lamented that the Soviets had not killed thousands of Czech protestors three years earlier (pLanguage English ISBN 0700614001 (hbk.) : Dewey Number 327.1273009045 Libraries Australia ID 26883291 Contributed by Libraries Australia Get this edition View online Borrow Buy Freely available Show 0 more linksPart 2 covers the Dwight Eisenhower years, a period that is commonly known as the golden age of covert operations at the CIA.Barrett works diligently to piece together what Congress knew about covert operations and when they knew it.The immense difficulty of this endeavor becomes apparent once Barrett reveals [n]o full transcript of a CIA subcommittee hearing devoted to covert action has ever been declassified, forcing historians to rely on other documentation plus the memories of those who attended (pRyan marked it as to-read Aug 16, 2016 Gavin marked it as to-read Nov 28, 2016 Home&Gifts Home & Gifts Popular Categories Art Supplies Bags & Totes Decorative Accents Electronics Journals Reading Aids See All > Price Under $10 $10 - $25 $25 - $50 $50 and Up Gift Finder Gifts for Everyone For Her For Him For Students For Readers For Writers Favorite Brands Moleskine Maya Angelou: The Legacy Collection by Dogeared Jewelry Vera Bradley Knock Knock Kate Spade New York Ban.do Collection Seasonal Favorites Summer Tote:$12.95 with Purchase Peter Rabbit Cheers to Dad Tropical Dreams Special Collections Harry Potter Winnie the Pooh Fantastic Beasts Moana Finding Dory Star Wars Raise the Bar Skip the tie this year and get Dad a gift hell use year after yearDavid MReview of Barrett, David M., The CIA and Congress: The Untold Story from Truman to KennedyWhile Barrett concedes he was unable to fill in all the blanksthe expected obstacles remain to a considerable degreehe nonetheless is able to paint a far richer picture of this early period than we had before461).Barrett proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Congress was sometimes displeased with the CIA; there were even times when legislators sought to cut the agencys funding.But while Congress did not grant the CIA a blank check during the early years of the Cold War, it provided the agency with a massive annual budget and demanded very little accountability in return.Based on the evidence that Barrett presents, Congress was extremely irresponsible, time and again allowing secrecy to undermine American democracy.It is indeed a tragedy that Senator Mansfields colleagues did not listen to him in the mid-1950s.Barrett has every right to be skeptical of what a joint oversight committee could have accomplished.If nothing else, though, it would have made agency leaders think twice before engaging in domestic espionage during the Vietnam War or destabilizing Chile in the early 1970s.
Yet despite the internal feuds on some of the subcommittees, Barrett points out that a consensus emerged in Congress on the relationship between secrecy and democracy.[W]hile committee leaders envisioned having a few legislators monitor the CIA on behalf of Congress, he observes, they agreed with [Allen] Dulles and administration leaders that secrecy took priority over openness (pDuring the 1950s, as the agency embarked on a long list of covert operations, its analytical capability did not improve.(This was probably connected to the fact that the CIA spent less than 25 percent of its annual budget on analysis.)In 1955, a CIA estimate on Hungary envisioned almost no potential for a major uprising there: active and organized resistance is virtually impossible, because of elaborate and effective police controls (p45)This single location in Western Australia: Library Access Call number(s) Formats held Language University of Western AustraliaBall
