“Deception is a state of mind–and the mind of the state.” - James Jesus Angleton
As the CIA’s own website has the cunning arrogance to tell me: “…observers of the intelligence scene find James Angleton endlessly fascinating.” Too true. Personally, though, what interests me the most is that with a small mountain of information available, none of it is believable. The man himself simply isn’t there.
Vanished in a turn of phrase. Angleton is all fiction, these days. From Hollywood bastardization to the weird channeled communications with Michael Ledeen, ARTIFICE remains an inscrutable wall of impeccable forgeries. Largely, this is thanks to the CIA’s enviable position as the primary author of it’s own history.
