For five years as a CIA officer in the 1970s, Frank Snepp worked as interrogator, agent debriefer, and chief strategy analyst in the United States Embassy in Saigon. He later became a whistleblower and, during a 1983 interview recently tweeted out by Edward Snowden, Snepp explained in detail how he and his CIA colleagues used to plant false stories about the Vietnam War with targeted top-tier American journalists, all in an effort to influence public opinion and legislation in Congress.
Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss how in Snepp’s time the CIA had to use guile to get journalists to spread propaganda whereas today intelligence operatives are invited to do so directly from the pages of the New York Times or the set of CNN and MSNBC studios.
