Adopt Our 'CIA in Exile'

By Robert Parry
July 21, 2008

One of our goals at has been to give our readers the insights of former U.S. intelligence analysts who are now outside the system, partly because they told unwelcome truths when they were inside.

From their decades of experience, these analysts from the CIA and other intelligence agencies have become skilled at seeing through the propaganda and disinformation that so often passes for political discourse in modern Washington.

That’s why it’s so valuable to get the perspectives of CIA veterans like Ray McGovern and Peter Dickson. Or learn from the field savvy of former FBI agent Coleen Rowley, a hero of the 9/11 investigation, and Army intelligence analyst Sam Provance, a whistleblower on the Abu Ghraib prison abuses.

We also highlight the published works of courageous intelligence analysts, like Mel Goodman. (And we let Web sites across the Internet re-post these stories, so this important information can reach a broad audience.)

But all this costs money. We’re now budgeting about $2,500 a month to pay former U.S. intelligence analysts for articles they write for us (on top of our regular costs of about $12,000 a month).

You can help by adopting these “exiled” intelligence analysts and sponsoring their writings.

Any sum is welcome, but for a $2,500 donation (or one month’s story budget), we will include your name on a special sponsorship list (or if you prefer, we can treat your contribution as confidential).

If you can afford it, you might want to sign up for multiple months. (Remember your donations are tax-deductible.)

Contributions can be made by credit card at the Web site or by sending a check to:

Thank you.
