Phillip Agee was a CIA operative based in Mexico who resigned in 1968 to protest US meddling & overthrowing Latin American governments. He was unable to return to the US & was hounded by the CIA from one country to the next until he found asylum in Cuba where he died in 2008.

Compare the punitive treatment he received to that of those ‘retired’ CIA, FBI, State Department & Pentagon officials who now lead the US antiwar movement. Colleen Rowley, Ann Wright, Ray McGovern & several others receive generous pensions & have received no punitive or vindictive treatment from the US government. Is it because they remain, by their own admission, in contact with active duty colleagues? A sting operation writ large?Who’s really running the US antiwar movement, such as it is?
