Welcome to another JFK Facts reader–from another continent–who has enrolled in my History of the CIA course. As de Tocqueville said, “There are some things Americans can only learn from foreigners.” Too true, Alexis!
Enrollment is still open. The course is divided into three parts, The first four weeks, “From OSS to CIA to JFK,” cover the story of the CIA from its creation through the death of JFK. As I note in the lecture, In 1943, the CIA did not exist. Twenty years later, after Kennedy’s death, it was a power unto itself.
In my next podcast lecture, I’ll talk about the organization of the CIA’s coup in Guatemala in 1954. Join us.
