Ike and Covert Action, Tidbits by Evan Thomas

Recommended Posts

Video of Evan Thomas discussing his 2012 book, Ike's Bluff.  Revelations are thin, but...

  • @07:00 Ike "hated" Allen Dulles for the U2 scuttling the Paris summit, was angered when people commented that Dulles should have been fired.  "I'm the president and you're not."  Fear factor?
  • @47:28 In Ike's admin, Time-Life's C. D. Jackson was "way out there" and "crazy for" employing covert action against the Soviets.
