Foreign Affairs - Book Review - The CIA's Secret War in Tibet - Kenneth Conboy and James Morrison (512 words)
Laird has gone to great lengths to penetrate the walls of secrecy the CIA constructed to hide the identity and the activities of Douglas Mackiernan, the first of its agents to be killed on duty.
Mackiernan started his CIA connection by building in Massachusetts a long-distance radio receiving system, which fronted as a collector of weather reports from around the world but in fact picked up the Soviets' coded signals about their nuclear work.
With his hero killed before getting to Tibet, Laird's story has less to do with Tibet than with the challenge of finding evidence about CIA operations, and he makes clear how the cruel imperatives of secrecy left Mackiernan's widow and twin daughters with only the pension of a vice consul.
