CIA Agent II: William Colby

Princeton graduate and OSS veteran, Colby supervised the Vietnam war rural pacification program called "Operation Phoenix." Colby strongly believed that US counter-insurgency had succeeded, recounting in his memoirs that by the early 1970's he was able to tour the countryside by motorbike, without need of escort. After becoming the Director of Central Intelligence, he co-operated with the mid-1970's Congressional investigations into some of the CIA's misdeeds.
