Disinformation and the CIA

Check out this curious official reference by the CIA to the Soviet article Wayne Madsen describes today in his LRC contribution, “Rockefeller Global Tentacles Exposed in 1959 by the Soviet Union.” (I have enhanced its deeper meaning for LRC readers with certain choice hyperlinks.)

“The espionage-sabotage service of the Hitlerite intelligence officer, Reinhard Gehlen, lives on American dollars under the guardianship of Dulles’ CIA,” says an article by V. Makhov in a 1957 collection, About Those Who Are Against Peace.

The ten-page Makhov article is probably the most detailed and comprehensive description of CIA and its works in the open Soviet literature. It expounds all the themes enumerated above, illustrating them — with characteristic organizational imprecision — from press reports of General Donovan’s activities in Thailand and during the Hungarian revolution, from published U.S. allusions to Ambassador Peurifoy’s and Allen Dulles’ part in the Guatemalan coup, and from confessions of former members of “Dulles’ full division of agents” who have been apprehended behind the iron curtain. It includes a biography of the evil genius Dulles himself, stressing his Wall Street background and his status as an agent for the monopolists in all foreign and military affairs from insuring the domination of U.S. capital abroad to establishing naval strength ratios. It affirms, on the basis of captured Nazi Foreign Ministry documents and other evidence, that his chief wartime mission in Switzerland was to see to the preservation of German economic and military might as a bulwark against the USSR.
