Video: The Secret Government

This excellent video originally aired on PBS in 1987, hosted by the venerable Bill Moyers. It is presciently pertinent today, in the post-9/11 USA. And it all started with the post-war National Security Act of 1947…

Moyers also worked for Lyndon B. Johnson and has a very professional approach. He interviews many different people involved with the CIA and other government agencies. His documentary gives quite an overview of what has actually happened in the last 50 years regarding the CIA and the cold war (including Iran, Guatamala, Cuba, Vietnam and Chile). He features such people as Ralph McGeehee and Phil Retinger (both former CIA agents), Rear Admiral Gene La Rocque (Ret. U.S.N.), Theodore Bissell (active in the CIA at the time), Sen. Frank Church and many others.  The full video “The Secret Government” is 90 minutes – this segment is edited by Frank Dorrel to 20 minutes.
