About The Event
The HKS DC Alumni Council, in partnership with the Citadel Club of Greater Washington, invites you to a discussion of the 60's CIA with Washington Post reporter Jefferson Morley, based on his book The Ghost: The Secret Life of CIA Spymaster James Jesus Angleton. Ticket includes refreshments.
As chief of CIA Counterintelligence, James Angleton's checkered career included personal knowledge of Lee Harvey Oswald 's activities leading up to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and a disastrously unsuccessful search for a Soviet mole. David Major, former FBI Counterintelligence Division Executive, and Mark Kelton, retired Deputy Director for Counter Intelligence in the CIA's National Clandestine Service (Directorate of Operations), will join Mr. Morley to discuss the lingering institutional damage inflicted by Angleton's career. Join us for a spirited discusion of Angleton's career-long response to Soviet treachery with policy implications that could well extend to Russia's meddling in the recent presidential election. Books will be available for purchase, and Mr. Morley will cap the evening with a book signing!
