THE PHOENIX & THE PATRIOT ACT >>

EPISODE #280

AIRED: 04-30-2017

A fascinating account of how CIA Director William Colby bestowed today’s guest, Douglas Valentine with unprecedented research access to the Phoenix Program, the Vietnam “pacification” program that assassinated over 50,000 teachers, mayors and civil servants among the Viet Cong. That intensive disclosure was something the CIA would come to regret! Valentine talks about his new book: “The CIA as Organized Crime: How Illegal Operations Corrupt America and the World” on Amazon. To put it mildly, the CIA gets a bit touchy about Valentine’s works including “The Phoenix Program” and “The Strength of the Wolf: The Secret History of America’s War on Drugs.” His latest book argues the Phoenix Program in Vietnam has been resurrected in the Patriot Act with its secret charges, secret evidence and unlimited administrative detentions. All of it rings truthful to your faithful host! Mysteriously, at the bottom of the second hour, all connection to TFR and Valentine cuts off for 20 minutes. The show resumes 10 minutes before the end of the hour! It’s worth a fast forward to finish it out!
