    These stories about the activities of the CIA just keep coming. I am beginning to wonder if there is ANYTHING that they have not tried to influence. One thing for sure, all those ‘conspiracy theorists’ are bound to be proved right one day!
    Best wishes from England, Pete.

      That is the conclusion that I have come to. The CIA works overtime and leaves absolutely nothing to chance. I remember watching the movie adaptation of “Doctor Zhivago” a few years ago and wondering at the time whether or not the CIA had tried to use it for propaganda purposes. If you suspect that it might make sense for the CIA to use a piece of literature for propaganda or take this or that type of action to further its ends, then it almost certainly has done so or at least considered it. All my research thus far tells me that those scoundrels are incredibly busy and relentless with practically unlimited resources.
