I came across the book "Secrets and Lies" by Gordon Thomas in a used book store. It is about MK Ultra. On page 72, it mentions a CIA training camp
in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where one of the agents got his field training in the 1950's. It sounds like a precursor to what they do at Camp
Perry today. Now of course what is interesting is even today Fayetteville has CIA presence, notably the Johnson County Airport where the CIA rendition
planes were based.
Google turns up nothing on Fayetteville as a CIA training facility, past or present. Any locals to the town on the forum know where it was based? I'm
guessing they just used a military base, but it would be interesting if the CIA has their own distinct base in town.
I can't vouch for the accuracy of the book since on page 11 is mentions Nellis AFB having chemical and biological weapons.
A local CIA branch could be based out of something as simple as an office building. I know my local office was. My local office simply used nearby
MacDill AFB for any training needs. They didn't have their own facility. And no, they wouldn't be in the phonebook.
Back when I first got in touch with a local recruiter, I had contacted a college professor at a nearby college (he was listed in the CIA Entrance
Examination Guide book (which seemed to be printed only one year or so, but the contact was still good back then)...who then got me in touch with a
local recruiter and office.
My stint was brief though, as the trainee program I was in was cancelled when Russia collapsed as a superpower. (which tells you how long ago it was).
