"Take tea and see" is a good advertising slogan that should also alertthe dirty trickster to some additives brought to our attention by herbal-teaproducers.

First, some teas contain theleaves, flowers, and the bark of senna plant, a tropical shrub related to ourbean plant. The dried leaves, bark, and flowers of this plant are a mightypowerful laxative. Chamomile flowers are also popular in herbal teas.Related to ragweed and goldenrod, chamomile can produce severe reactionsin people sensitive to plants of that family.
Then-CIA director Schlesinger commissioned the \"family jewels\" compilation with a May 9, 1973 directive after finding out that Watergate burglars E. Howard Hunt and James McCord (both veteran CIA officers) had cooperation from the Agency as they carried out \"dirty tricks\" for President Nixon. The Schlesinger directive, drafted by deputy director for operations William Colby, commanded senior CIA officials to report immediately on any current or past Agency matters that might fall outside CIA authority. By the end of May, Colby had been named to succeed Schlesinger as DCI, and his loose-leaf notebook of memos totaled 693 pages [see John Prados, Lost Crusader: The Secret Wars of CIA Director William Colby (Oxford University Press, 2003, pp. 259-260.]
The result is less a book than an obsession. Wright is pursuing a vendetta; Viking Penguin is pursuing big bucks - very successfully: The reader should beware. Those retired spooks who rightly denounced ``Spycatcher'' are, however, ignoring their own complicity in a system whose dirty tricks lend credence to Wright's accusations against Roger Hollis. ``We teach our men to lie,'' says le Carr'e's George Smiley, ``and then are surprised when they lie to us.''
Like every bureaucracy, especially Government bureaucracies, cover-up is the reflex reaction to any expose. The CIA has not suspended covert activities since the recent exposes about its dirty tricks. It has just gone deeper underground. Marchetti remarked: \"As far back as 1968, Richard Bissell, once head of Clandestine Services gave a secret talk to the Council on Foreign Affairs. He recommended using more legitimate businesses as deep covers for CIA operations. That was six years ago, before any of the recent revelations. The cancer is spreading. When you discover ex-CIA guys working as public safety advisors to the governors of major states, I can't believe they've severed all ties with the Agency. And now with the changes in Cambodia and Vietnam, a lot of agents will have to be reassigned to South Africa, Portugal, and right here at home in our communities...\"
According to Marchetti, the CIA is really two Agencies in one. It was chartered in 1947 by Congress to gather and analyze intelligence information, and to make recommendations about policy options to the President and his advisors. \"Truman wanted an organization to digest information for him. But Allen Dulles and people from the OSS (the U.S. spy agency during World War II) wanted a clandestine service and a loop-hole was added to the Charter authorizing the CIA to carry out \"special assignments\" for the National Security Council. That loophole has become the real CIA, the dangerous two-thirds of the iceberg, the part that sinks governments, like Chile, like Iran, the espionage service, dirty tricks, propaganda, falsification of documents.\"
On paper the CIA employs 16-18,000 people on a budget of $750 million per year. Actually, the budget is far higher because the CIA owns and runs many proprietary companies around the world which make money, like Air America, the airline involved in the heroin trade in Southeast Asia. Then there's the Alumni Association that links perhaps as many as 100,000 people into the intelligence net: \"People all over are friends and allies of the Company. There are 60 Federal agencies engaged in intelligence work of one kind or another - many have ex-CIA people in them. There are secretaries who quit the Agency and become secretaries in college towns. They're recruited to date certain students and to report on them. There are old friends who've been out of the Agency for fifteen, twenty years who rent \"safe houses\" to CIA dirty tricksters. My old father says: 'Them CIA guys are all over, like horseshit.'\"
With a sharp eye for the pathos and absurdity of the Cold War, Robert Littell crafted his first novel, the now legendary spy thriller The Defection of A.J. Lewinter. Christopher Lehmann-Haupt of The New York Times called it \"a perfect little gem, the best Cold War thriller I've read in years,\" and the praise kept coming with critics hailing Littell as \"the American Le Carré\" (New York Times) and raving that his books were \"as good as thriller writing gets\" (The Washington Post).For his fourteenth novel, Robert Littell creates a stunningly conceived mole hunt involving such rivals and allies as the MI6, KGB, and Mossad.Racing across a canvas that spans the legendary Berlin Base in the 1950s--the front line of the simmering Cold War--to the Soviet invasion of Hungary, the Bay of Pigs, the Afghan war, the Gorbachev putsch, and other major theatres of operation for the CIA, The Company tells a thrilling story of agents imprisoned in an engrossing, multigenerational, wickedly nostalgic yet utterly candid saga, bringing to life through a host of characters--historical and imagined-- over 40 years of the CIA--\"the Company\" to insiders. double lives, fighting an enemy that was amoral, elusive, formidable.Littell tells it like it was: CIA agents, fighting not only the good fight, but sometimes the bad one as well. Littell also brilliantly lays bare the warring within the Company to add another dimension to the spy vs. spy game: the battles between the counterintelligence agents in Washington, like the utterly obsessive real-life mole hunter James Angleton, and the covert action boys in the field, like The Company's Harvey Torriti--the Sorcerer--a brilliant and brash rule breaker and dirty tricks expert who fights fire with fire, and his Apprentice, Jack McAuliffe, recruited fresh out of Yale, who learns tradecraft and the hard truths of life in the field.As this dazzling anatomy of the CIA unfolds, nothing less than the world's future in the second half of the twentieth century is at stake. At once a celebration of a long Cold War well fought, an elegy for the end of an era, and a reckoning for a profession in which moral ambiguity created a wilderness of mirrors, The Company is the Cold War's devastating truth, its entertaining tale, its last word.
In this episode, Michael Morell speaks with Alex Finley, a former CIA officer in the Directorate of Operations and an author of three satirical books depicting life and work at the agency. Finley describes how CIA officers often use humor in unique ways to cope with high-stress assignments, and she and Morell discuss the ways in which satire can illuminate little-known realities about serious subjects. Finley also describes her newfound role as an amateur 'yacht-watcher,' tracking Russian oligarchs' yachts through the port of Barcelona.
