The late Philip Agee speaks on "Inside the Company: CIA Diary"
Philip Agee was a former Central Intelligence Agency officer who served in Latin America. He wrote, "When I joined the CIA I believed in the need for its existence." After 12 years with the agency I finally understood how much suffering it was causing, that millions of people all over the world had been killed or had their lives destroyed by the CIA and the institutions it supports." After resigning from the Agency he exposed its inner workings and covert operations. For his efforts he was denounced and vilified. His passport was revoked. Ex-CIA Director and later President Bush the
first called Agee "a traitor." Agee is the author of "Inside the Company: CIA Diary" and "On the Run." He died in 2008.
