Allen Dulles, the CIA director under presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, the younger brother of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, and the architect of a secretive national security apparatus that functioned as essentially an autonomous branch of government. Talbot offers a portrait of a black-and-white Cold War-era world full of spy games and nuclear brinkmanship, in which everyone is either a good guy or a bad guy. Dulles—who deceived American elected leaders and overthrew foreign ones, who backed ex-Nazis and thwarted left-leaning democrats—falls firmly in the latter camp. 

But what I was really trying to do was a biography on the American power elite from World War II up to the 60s. That was the key period when the national security state was constructed in this country, and where it begins to overshadow American democracy. It’s almost like Game of Thrones to me, where you have the dynastic struggles between these power groups within the American system for control of the country and the world…

Absolutely. The surveillance state that Snowden and others have exposed is very much a legacy of the Dulles past. I think Dulles would have been delighted by how technology and other developments have allowed the American security state to go much further than he went. He had to build a team of cutthroats and assassins on the ground to go around eliminating the people he wanted to eliminate, who he felt were in the way of American interests. He called them communists. We call them terrorists today. And of course the most controversial part of my book, I’m sure, will be the end, where I say there was blowback from that. Because that killing machine in some way was brought back home.

– From the Mother Jones article: You Think the NSA Is Bad? Meet Former CIA Director Allen Dulles

Many of you will be intimately familiar with the name Allen Dulles. Younger readers, of my generation or below, will be far less so. It is precisely because the youth of this nation remain so ignorant of the nefarious characters in America’s past, that David Talbot’s recently published book, The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government, is so incredibly important.

Mr. Talbot has been recently conducting invaluable interviews about the book with various media organizations. One of the best I’ve seen is with Mother Jones. Here’s some of what he had to say about America’s longest serving CIA director:

But what I was really trying to do was a biography on the American power elite from World War II up to the 60s. That was the key period when the national security state was constructed in this country, and where it begins to overshadow American democracy. It’s almost like Game of Thrones to me, where you have the dynastic struggles between these power groups within the American system for control of the country and the world.

I focused on those elements that I thought were important to understanding him. I thought other books covered that ground fairly well before me. But what they left out was the interesting nuances and shadow aspects of Dulles’s biography. I think that you can make a case, although I didn’t explicitly say this in the book, for Allen Dulles being a psychopath.

They’ve done studies of people in power, and they all have to be, to some extent, on the spectrum. You have to be unfeeling to a certain extent to send people to their death in war and take the kind of actions that men and women in power routinely have to take. But with Dulles, I think he went to the next step. His own wife and mistress called him “the Shark.” His favorite word was whether you were “useful” to him or not. And this went for people he was sleeping with or people he was manipulating in espionage or so on. He was the kind of man that could cold-bloodedly, again and again, send people to their death, including people he was familiar with and supposedly fond of.

There’s a thread there between people like Dulles up through Dick Cheney and [Donald] Rumsfeld—who was sitting at Dulles’s knee at one point. I was fascinated to find that correspondence between a young Congressman Rumsfeld and Allen Dulles, who he was looking to for wisdom and guidance as a young politician.

Absolutely. The surveillance state that Snowden and others have exposed is very much a legacy of the Dulles past. I think Dulles would have been delighted by how technology and other developments have allowed the American security state to go much further than he went. He had to build a team of cutthroats and assassins on the ground to go around eliminating the people he wanted to eliminate, who he felt were in the way of American interests. He called them communists. We call them terrorists today. And of course the most controversial part of my book, I’m sure, will be the end, where I say there was blowback from that. Because that killing machine in some way was brought back home.

How about Dulles’ role in the assassination of JFK? Talbot pulls no punches here either…

To me it’s one of the greatest examples of media incompetence and negligence in American history. I even confronted Ben Bradlee about this, who was probably JFK’s closest friend in the Washington press corps and wrote a book all about JFK and their close friendship. “Why didn’t you, with your investigative resources, try to get [to] the bottom of it?” You should read what he says in Brothers, but basically it came down to, “Well, I thought it would ruin my career.”

I think I have studied this about as much as anyone in my generation at this point, and my final conclusion after 50 years was we have to go there, we have to look at the fact that there’s a wealth of circumstantial evidence that says not only was there, at the highest level, CIA involvement. Probably in the assassination cover-up. But beyond the CIA, because the CIA wouldn’t have acted on its own.

But the CIA are good guys now. Or so the propagandized American public believes…

    That makes sense, especially as it is pretty much backed up by something I found when looking into my DUMBs info.
    In 1973, L Fletcher Prouty, a retired US Air Force Colonel, wrote a book called ‘The Secret Team’. From 1955 to 1963, Prouty was the liaison between the Central Intelligence Agency and the Department of Defense for military support of what he calls Special Operations. His position gave him access to a wide range of political, intelligence and military operatives – all the way from Washington, DC and the Pentagon to the far corners of the globe. He observed the full spectrum of secret operations and policy making.

    The Secret Team is the name of “a powerful, brutally violent and treacherous international team”, says Prouty, ‘with operatives in the academic world (scholars), in intelligence agencies (spies), in the military (both officers and enlisted personnel), in private industry (businessmen & women), in the world of corporate and public sector high finance (bankers, financiers and stock brokers), in the news media (electronic & print journalists), in the publishing industry in the United States and abroad (book publishers).” It has powerful connections in dozens of countries all over the world. According to Prouty, the Secret Team overthrows and influences governments almost at will, all over the globe. At the core of the Secret Team are members of the CIA, the National Security Council, and various and sundry other military and civilian officials, intelligence operatives, business people and academics.

    The Secret Team is “the real power structure” which Prouty compares to “a sprawling octopus”. It has the world and the United States in its deadly grasp.

    Dulles was instrumental in conjunction with his associates at the Bank of International Settlements for the formation and imposition of the EU dictatorship. The CIA / OSS funded and assisted the formation of pro EU think tanks of traitors such as the Bilderberg group. The USA also funded propaganda to rig Britain’s referendum entry into the “Common Market”.

    Banks Spooks & Looting then as now ?

    The BIS survived the war by accepting stolen gold. Thomas McKittrick retired as President and returned to the US in 1946 to accept a vice presidency with the Chase National ~ank of New York. 89 Throughout the war, Germany kept the BIS an ongoing enterprise, despite the inconveniences of war, using a fraudulent scheme disguised as the payment of reparation iqterest to occupied receivor countries by using their looted gold reserves, and then account dividends were paid to the banks, took the dividends from the banks. The BIS, in effect, became ttleir partner in looting. At no time did McKittrick express or comment on the Nazi onslaught IJading to dispossession of every types of personal and public asset, the elimination of national s9vereignties, or the extermination of civilian populations.

    Dulles for sure is one of the most evil man in human history but a member of a wider international cartel.

      Is the RKM World Control Grid run by a secret inter-generational “bloodline” group of Opium Traffickers that has infiltrated the Pentagon and uses the Israeli-American Terror machine as its enforcer ?

      Over the years some who have retired from working inside the upper levels of Intel and Defense have claimed that the core controllers of the Pentagon are themselves under the control of a secret occult-linked drug trafficking group.
      by Preston James
      This group is also believed to run the Israeli-American Terror machine and the private central Banking Systems run out of the City of London.

      This group controls most of the World’s political systems through private Fiat central banking while waging wars to extend power and generate massive profits not otherwise possible.

      But there have also been claims that this powerful group of “World Money-changers” originally gained much of its foreign power from creating and maintaining a large international opium trafficking network or cartel hidden behind a City of London Proprietary Intel operation.

      Some historians believe that this large Opium trafficking group operated through a proprietary Intel front known as the British East India Company.

      Anyone who wants more information about the World’s largest opium Trafficking Cartel should get a hold of the well respected classic, Dope Inc. and read it. Many secrets are contained in this book which some claimed sent Henry Kissinger into a tizzy fit.

      It is now generally recognized that the *RKM is an inter-generational family-based private international central Fiat banking group insiders refer to as the “World Money-changers”, or “the Baby” because it is at the nexus of the revived mystery Babylonian Talmudic Banking system, also known as the “money from nothing” Babylonian Money-magick system.

      Once the Rothschild Family took over the City of London after waterloo, their main goal adopted was to hijack and then revitalize the British Empire which was beginning to fail and shrink. But they intended to do so in a covert way so that each of the captive nations truly believed they were becoming independent.

      The exceedingly crafty plan they developed was to set up a secret private central banking network to replace the visible British Colonial governments. But in order to do this they deemed it was necessary to gain secret control over most of the underworld crime groups in these colonies and use this criminal network to build up the strength of their secret empire.
