This series on covert action, featuring former CIA official John Stockwell and Louis Wolf,
co-editor of Covert Action Information Bulletin, begins with an overview of the general
nature and activities of the CIA. We then discuss how the "Intelligence Identities Protection Act" and the Reagan executive order on intelligence
agencies would promote media self-censorship and thus repress public scrutiny and criticism of intelligence (including FBI) activities -- including
assassination plots, destabilization of foreign governments, and assorted "dirty tricks." John Stockwell explains how this legislation in effect
amends the First Amendment by abridging freedoms of speech and press -- without having gone through the constitutional amendment process. From
"Alternative Views" out of Austin, Texas in 1983.

I'm really surprised that this hasn't gotten more attention by people here at ATS. I think think that this is a must watch for anyone who is
interested in stuff about the CIA. You know what they always say. Why don't they tell you the truth? They don't want you to know the truth. The
truth is that not much of our interventions throughout the cold war were really justified. The team here from alternative views discuss at length the
policy of the Reagan adminsitration with the secrets act and how it prevents investigative approaches of journalism to government agencies and they
also talk about various CIA interventions around the world. You thought that the CIA is just an intelligence agency? Think again. Look beyond the
world of conspiracy as this guy tells the truth and exposes the CIA for what it really is. It's a shame that our government took a erroneous foreign
policy that it did during the cold war days and now people hate us for it. And our university professors try to dismiss it as conspiracy theory.
This is a must watch for anyone who is interested in truth.
