Publisher's Summary

A veteran of two and a half decades with the Central Intelligence Agency unmasks the culture of lethal lies at its foundation in this devastating exposé, now with a new foreword by David MacMichael.
Ralph W. McGehee was a patriot, dedicated to the American way of life and the international fight against Communism. Following his graduation with honors from Notre Dame, McGehee was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1952 and quickly became an able and enthusiastic cold warrior. Stationed in Southeast Asia in the mid-1960s, he worked to stem the Communist tide that was sweeping through the region, first in Thailand and later in Vietnam.
But despite his notable successes in reversing enemy influence among the local peasants and villagers, McGehee found himself increasingly alienated from a company culture built on deceit and wholesale manipulation of the truth. While his country was being pulled deeper and deeper into the Vietnam quagmire, McGehee awoke to a chilling reality: The CIA was not a gatherer of actual intelligence to be employed in a legitimate war against dangerous enemies but a tool of the president's foreign-policy staff designed solely to stifle the truth and fabricate "facts" that supported the agency's often immoral agenda. With courage and candor, Ralph McGehee illuminates the CIA's dark catalog of misdeeds in his stunning, no-holds-barred memoir of a life in the service of deception.
Startling, eye opening, and infuriating, Deadly Deceits is an honest and unflinching insider's look at a toxic government agency that the author cogently argues has no useful purpose and no moral right to exist.
