Meet Allen Dulles: The "Psychopath" Who Created America's Modern Shadow Government

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Allen Dulles, the CIA director under presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, the younger brother of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, and the architect of a secretive national security apparatus that functioned as essentially an autonomous branch of government. Talbot offers a portrait of a black-and-white Cold War-era world full of spy games and nuclear brinkmanship, in which everyone is either a good guy or a bad guy. Dulles—who deceived American elected leaders and overthrew foreign ones, who backed ex-Nazis and thwarted left-leaning democrats—falls firmly in the latter camp.

 

But what I was really trying to do was a biography on the American power elite from World War II up to the 60s. That was the key period when the national security state was constructed in this country, and where it begins to overshadow American democracy. It’s almost like Game of Thrones to me, where you have the dynastic struggles between these power groups within the American system for control of the country and the world…

 

Absolutely. The surveillance state that Snowden and others have exposed is very much a legacy of the Dulles past. I think Dulles would have been delighted by how technology and other developments have allowed the American security state to go much further than he went. He had to build a team of cutthroats and assassins on the ground to go around eliminating the people he wanted to eliminate, who he felt were in the way of American interests. He called them communists. We call them terrorists today. And of course the most controversial part of my book, I’m sure, will be the end, where I say there was blowback from that. Because that killing machine in some way was brought back home.

 

– From the Mother Jones article: You Think the NSA Is Bad? Meet Former CIA Director Allen Dulles

Many of you will be intimately familiar with the name Allen Dulles. Younger readers, of my generation or below, will be far less so. It is precisely because the youth of this nation remain so ignorant of the nefarious characters in America’s past, that David Talbot’s recently published book, The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government, is so incredibly important.

Mr. Talbot has been recently conducting invaluable interviews about the book with various media organizations. One of the best I’ve seen is with Mother Jones. Here’s some of what he had to say about America’s longest serving CIA director:

But what I was really trying to do was a biography on the American power elite from World War II up to the 60s. That was the key period when the national security state was constructed in this country, and where it begins to overshadow American democracy. It’s almost like Game of Thrones to me, where you have the dynastic struggles between these power groups within the American system for control of the country and the world.

 

I focused on those elements that I thought were important to understanding him. I thought other books covered that ground fairly well before me. But what they left out was the interesting nuances and shadow aspects of Dulles’s biography. I think that you can make a case, although I didn’t explicitly say this in the book, for Allen Dulles being a psychopath.

 

They’ve done studies of people in power, and they all have to be, to some extent, on the spectrum. You have to be unfeeling to a certain extent to send people to their death in war and take the kind of actions that men and women in power routinely have to take. But with Dulles, I think he went to the next step. His own wife and mistress called him “the Shark.” His favorite word was whether you were “useful” to him or not. And this went for people he was sleeping with or people he was manipulating in espionage or so on. He was the kind of man that could cold-bloodedly, again and again, send people to their death, including people he was familiar with and supposedly fond of.

 

There’s a thread there between people like Dulles up through Dick Cheney and [Donald] Rumsfeld—who was sitting at Dulles’s knee at one point. I was fascinated to find that correspondence between a young Congressman Rumsfeld and Allen Dulles, who he was looking to for wisdom and guidance as a young politician.

 

Absolutely. The surveillance state that Snowden and others have exposed is very much a legacy of the Dulles past. I think Dulles would have been delighted by how technology and other developments have allowed the American security state to go much further than he went. He had to build a team of cutthroats and assassins on the ground to go around eliminating the people he wanted to eliminate, who he felt were in the way of American interests. He called them communists. We call them terrorists today. And of course the most controversial part of my book, I’m sure, will be the end, where I say there was blowback from that. Because that killing machine in some way was brought back home.

How about Dulles’ role in the assassination of JFK? Talbot pulls no punches here either…

To me it’s one of the greatest examples of media incompetence and negligence in American history. I even confronted Ben Bradlee about this, who was probably JFK’s closest friend in the Washington press corps and wrote a book all about JFK and their close friendship. “Why didn’t you, with your investigative resources, try to get [to] the bottom of it?” You should read what he says in Brothers, but basically it came down to, “Well, I thought it would ruin my career.”

 

I think I have studied this about as much as anyone in my generation at this point, and my final conclusion after 50 years was we have to go there, we have to look at the fact that there’s a wealth of circumstantial evidence that says not only was there, at the highest level, CIA involvement. Probably in the assassination cover-up. But beyond the CIA, because the CIA wouldn’t have acted on its own.

But the CIA are good guys now. Or so the propagandized American public believes…

Heh - amusingly enough, the CIA gives a review of that movie on their own website. Surprisingly fair actually, they rightly laugh at he notion of all the important plotting and planning happening at Deer Island Skull and Bones retreats. Dulles didn't go to Yale, he went to Princeton. There is no doubt that a young Poppy got his marching orders at one of those soirees, though. Ever see that picture of him standing outside Parkland Hospital?

On another note, the whole Eddie Redmayne cuccina pillow talk blowing the Bay of Pigs operation was a ridiculous plot device.

Urban Redneck's picture

The fundamental problem with both Hollywood and the tinfoil hatters in regards to the CIA is that they need "faces" to sell their plot lines, despite the the fact that the faces and names are actually irrelevant, by design.  The Dulles Brother's weren't the Genesis and they are long gone from this world and their scion aren't part of the machinery they collaborated to build.  The evil brilliance is the system, the men involved are merely cogs in that machine.  You can kill them or they can send each other to their deaths, and the impact on system and its ability to function is negligible.  The notion of "reform" is a joke, outsiders (such as the Church committee, or Schlesinger, Turner, Webster, et al) are incapable of it an insiders (Goss, Brennan, et al) actually protect and enhance the institution and at most sacrifice a few of their "old friends" for good headlines to sell the myth of reform like the tinfoil hatters sell their myths of grand conspiracy. 

Until someone (with authority) takes a systemic (as opposed to personnel) approach to change, we will be stuck in the usual Rinse, Repeat cycle (shifting boxes on a PowerPoint org chart is not systemic change), and the talking heads will talk themselves into naive dead ends with comments such as, "because the CIA wouldn’t have acted on its own."   CIA detractors hunting ghosts serves the CIA well.  However, if you want to kill the vampire, you need to find its coffin and put a stake through its heart, only once you have found its coffin and the secrets contained therein can you actually follow the webs leading to involved "outsiders".

Wait, what?  I'm reading a quote from Mother Jones?  OK, now Alex perhaps...Mother?

I'm trying to remember the last left leaning Democrat until Sanders emerged. This country has moved so far towards fascism you have to be to the right of Himler before you are seen as anything but left leaning. Show me some nationalization of industry as opposed to privatization of government duties in the past 40 years. Please show me. It doesn't happen. There are only Fascist Oligarch bailouts which are not, I repeat NOT Communist. When ExxonMobil is nationalized we can talk about a Communism problem in this country.

Until then it's the RIGHT WING version of Socialism we should be concerned about and that is known as Fascism. Call it what it is.

Remember Hitler's rise to power occurred due to the Fascists murdering the Communists in Germany. Now to be clear Communism lead to mass murder and horrific conditions. Communism and Fascism are both TOTALITARIAN REGIMES.
The difference is in whether there is privatized industry via Crony Capitalism with things like bailouts from the public as is the case with Fascism. OR if the means of production are controlled solely by the state as is the case in Communism.

Clearly our country has a FASCIST not Communist problem. Anyone who has studied history can see that. Dulles was a Fasicst (see his support of Nazi's, many of whom were brought into the US government after WW II in operation Paperclip). It is the Fascists we need to worry about. I haven't seen a Communism problem in this country at any point. I have seen the right wing Socialists known as Fascists gaining ever more overt power. See Bush I (which includes Reagan), to a lesser extent Clinton, Bush II and of course our current Fascist Obama.

All the non-sense about Communism is a bunch of horse shit. It's Fascism plain and simple and this article outlines the genesis of the problem. 

The Obama is a Communist meme throws you off the scent. He's a FASCIST! 

Doubleguns's picture

Well then it seem the communists and the facists are fighting to rule this country and the "folks" are getting slaughtered by both sides. No wonder these two parties feel like I am choosing between drinking hemlock or strychnine. 

 

We are so fucked. 

Macchendra's picture

Obama, like HRC, is Republican-lite.  Still more wars paid for by pixie dust and unicorn farts.  More bank bailouts.  More anti-Glass-Steagall: "Hmmmm...  I wonder why it is such a bad idea to let businesses that are given the ability to virtually manufacture credit MERGE with the companies playing in the casino?"  More law enforcement against those looney pot-heads.  More anti-labor Milton Freedman "these CEOs are really taking a beating from unfairly priced American labor and need free-trade agreements and H1Bs to short the labor market across the board".  Meanwhile, the only bad that the allegedly non-mainstream right media can see is birth certificates and allegations of obamunism.

Obama, like everyone other than Sanders, is right of Nixon.

Bendromeda Strain's picture

Yes dear, you have both parties running on the National Socialist platform. Happy now?

"Show me some nationalization of industry as opposed to privatization of government duties in the past 40 years. Please show me."

Oh I dunno, government stepping in to bail out New York banks, Detroit car makers (in fact, the same one for the second time in my life time), forcing all citizens to purchase health insurance all the while expanding the states regulatory compliance department to the point hardly no small business can comply and be profitable is playing both sides of Socialist Street (partial state ownership vs. complete state ownership) and it doesn't matter if they've created a law requiring you to turn left or right at the Marx Avenue intersection or not...lol...it's still NOT the Laissez Faire Blvd. we all recognize and love to travel on with no apprehension of ever getting lost.

The fact of the matter is, is it's a hybrid socialist system they've created for themselves at the peoples expense and as that very smart fellow Jonathan Gruber once observed it's "the stupidity of the American voter" that allows it to happen.

How is that so nmewn?

Well, I'll tell you. It's called marketing, they come before us and say "We'll keep you safe." everyone shouts Hooray! (and you get the Patriot Act) they never tell you the costs in liberty or time or money, they are salesmen. They come before you and say "It's a right to own a home." everyone shouts Hooray! (and you get the Community Reinvestment Act) they never tell you the costs in liberty or time or money, they are salesmen.

SWRichmond's picture

...and in large part, IMO, they get away with their salesmanship by keeping the middle class preoccupied with existential threats, problems, and trying to deal with the endless, mindless bureacracy that is modern government.  NEA / public schools have been instrumental in this.  In order to stay in the middle class, both parents now work (if they're still married).  Weeknights with children in public school are an utter, hurried chaos.

Rad Fems have made it nearly impossible for couples to stay married, so men, instead of proudly leading and providing for a family, and being the ones in the couple who think about the future, are beaten down by the (government) system which is trying its damndest to seperate them from their kids and take their money (all of it, and then some). "Salesmanship" at the muzzle of a gun.  As a side note, I have made the case before that these men largely have little left to lose and could / should form the core of ther resistance to come.  Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.

"Work" is no longer about making stuff, it is about droning away in a bureacracy somewhere, working indoors in a nice office.  No value added, no productive activity, just regulatory compliance, tax compliance, HR, legal, shuffling bits on a screen...another outcome of massive government intervention into everything. 

And when all of that isn't enough, then yes, they blow shit up, unleash a small group of "terrorists" they created and equipped themselves, grab the headlines for a few weeks, remind us how essential "they" are to us.  People really don't understand how big "big" is, how much you can do with a "missing" $2 Trillion.

Hang any name on it you want.  Government IS the problem.  It's purposes are slavery and looting.  Nothing more.

You're bring your F game. What was the name of the Nazi party ? Something like National SOCIALIST Party ? Yes ?

 

Fascism is not a disease of the right; that's a bill of goods sold you in your social studies classes. Fascism is a disease of the left, as is communism. The common denominator is CONTROL.

You see communism all over the US, you just are refusng to see. Go read the 80,000 pages of Federal Regulations, add in tens of thousands more for the states and local governments. Have you ever owned a business ? Neither have I, altho the IRS says I do. I am told how to conduct my business, down to the type of covering on the shop floor approved by OSHA. There is no freedom in this country anywhere; we are all owned by the state and any profit you make goes back to the state in the form of taxes. There's a reason why the multinationals have all their money overseas; it would belong to the government if it was in the USA.

 

Open your eyes.

Indeed, Fascism is argueably Communism v2.0.

Benito Mussolini, the father of Fascism, was originally a Communist who became impatient with the failings, internal contradictions and ineptness of Communism so he redesigned it as the fusion of Communism and the Corporate state.

Under both Communism and Fascism, the overarching, essential paradigm is the same - control is exercised by the thin elite at the top, today in the West known as the 1% (more accurately 0.01%). Under Communism, known as the "nomenklatura". The come-on under Communism that "people own the means of production" was always just bait to make it palateable to the masses. The real owners of the means of production was always the nomenklatura, just like in the West.

The key event in our time is that the "nomenklatura" abandoned the Soviet Union in the early 1990's and moved to the West - the whole "neo-con" movement is basically made up of Western ex-Communists who symbolically abandoned Communism concurrently with the nomenklatura literally abandoning the Soviet Union, who are still at heart Judeo-Bolsheviks but who now exercise control within the US Deep State.

Ace006's picture

No sale. It's the odd duck who cares about nationalizing industry now. Communist shifted to destroying the culture, undermining institutions, and regulating and draining the productive.

Obama's mentor was a commie and he started his political career in the living room of two communist terrorists. Jarrett's f-i-l and godfather were commies and they hired Van Jones, a commie. Anita Dunn slobbers over the political philosophy of Mao. 

Fascism is just totalitarianism or authoritarianism with a corporate face.

Commie Sanders wants a 90% top tax rate. Because Hillary wants 89.9% doesn't make her a right winger.

Lea's picture

Only a slight problem with your otherwise faultless comment, Bring the Gold.
Socialism and Communism are the same thing. Not one country has ever branded itself communist. Even the USSR was the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics.
And there can be NO socialism without State-run companies and nationalizations.

What we're talking here has nothing to do with communism OR socialism. It's only your usual malodorous fascism, where private corporations rule with the full backing of the whole of the State apparatus, including the military and police.
The Americans are way too used to throwing around words like "commie" or "socialist" without regard for their definition. In the eyes of the leaders, it's all good as it makes for more and more confusion. No-one wants the US citizens to be able to think straight, right? So, muddling their definitions is a good place to start.

Pickleton's picture

In other words, you're the kind of idiot that ignores that left wing democrats have controlled this country for a generation and somehow or other the fascism is right wing.   You're right it's very fascist, but your understanding of where it came from... not so much.  IT'S NOT RIGHT WING. You're going to want to seek out who the progressives are and how they swallowed the democrat party whole.

Bring the Gold's picture

I think people are confused by the culture war. The CULTURAL left has been decisively winning for about 30 years. However, the business and deep state levers of control have drifted ever more towards fascism. Really gay marriage and all that non-sense is just noise. Is anyone freer now than 30 years ago? Maybe some minorities groups are better off as institutionalized racism has been challenged. Really though the middle class white man'a level of freedom had been greatly reduced with minor gains in liberty for women and minorities. As a country liberty is on the wane.

Rabbi Chaim Cohen's picture

The commonly referenced political spectra of Europe and the USA are very different and are often confused/melded into a nonsensical construct because of failure to recognize these differences:

The European system is a redundant spectrum comprised of the various forms of BIG GOVERNMENT. Europe lives under constant soft tyranny. On the Left is Communism, on the right is Nationalism (Fascism) and the center is a wide sub-spectrum of the various bents of Socialism. The consistent driving force is always collectivist ideology and Government largess. The system would have collapsed long ago without the American economic engine.

America: Although America has largely abandoned the concept in the past couple of generations. The spectrum WAS DESIGNED by America's Framers to be based on the SIZE OF GOVERNMENT. On the far left is tyranny, on the far right is Anarchy.

The US Founders wanted the American people to self-govern. So they slid toward the right and original US Federal Government was under the Articles of Confederation, but it was a bit too close to Anarchy. The Federal Government had too little power to force the States to help pay for the Revolutionary War efforts and was scrapped in favor of the US Constitution. The degree that the average individual inputs his responsibility is the quid pro quo that he MUST pay for continued freedom. Personal civic responsibility is directly proportional to the size of the US Federal Government.

As we have seen from the beginning American history is that very few Americans have understood that their failure to be responsible and put forth effort to tame the appetites of politicians have allowed the US Federal Government to grow into the same soft tyranny that Europe has long accepted in place of the old monarchies. Those who did were forced to secede and were then met with the full force of the Standing Army that the Anti-Federalists cautioned us about.

As a result we now have a massive entitlement class that has swollen to epic proportions both in the rabble of ingrates in the inner city housing and the boardrooms in the ivory towers.

American Experiment? -> FAIL.

"The CIA is the organized crime branch of the United States government.  Everything that it does is illegal."

"The CIA has two criteria for anything that it does.  One is that it has intelligence potential.  Second, whatever it does has to be deniable.  If the CIA can't set it up where it's actions can be denied, they won't do it."

-- Douglas Valentine (Doug interviewed former CIA director William Colby about the Phoenix Program in Vietnam.  Colby then introduced him to every top CIA official associated with Phoenix.  Doug has these interviews archived and on tape).

- whatever it does has to be deniable -

That's why ISIS is fucked in the long run.

Ace006's picture

No. The agency focuses on access, product, and covert operation. Deniability is what you hope and pray you have after it all goes to shit and you need four hours to clean up and get out.

Deniability is a stupid, romantic notion that makes some idiot manager think that a black guy from Omaha who speaks only English and Spanish who is captured in Laos with a ton of C-4 but no driver's license won't be figured as a U.S. operative.

The only reason they probably haven't taken out Obama (yet) is because he's so easily manipulated.

This man was George Bush Sr. boss for many years. Go figure.

Thought Processor's picture

 

Very True.  G. Bush Sr. has roots in the CIA from at least 1954 on.  Father Prescott was a Crony of the Dulles brothers and LBJ (who was a good friend and neighbor of J. Edgar Hoover, as they both had shit on........ everyone in Gov.  And neither were afraid to use it).  GHWB has many links to the JFK assasination.  Many that show he was much more than a bit player in it.

 

If you dig into this history and all the players in it the pieces all start to fall together.  The CIA was central (and still is) to all of this.

 

However it does lead down the rabbit hole because eventually you run into things like the 5412 group and then back to the MJ-12 group which leads back to.............  the signing of the National Security Act of 1947 on July 26th 1947 in the back of an airplane while on the runway at Andrews.  Why the rush to sign you ask?  Good question.

Anyone care to guess?  What happened in early June / July that lit a fire under everyone's ass?

If you take a closer look at the JFK assassination vis-a-vis 9/11 you soon begin to realize that the JFK assassination is virtually a template for 9/11. Useful patsy with myriad ties to the US intelligence community as a fall guy; contaminated physical evidence to destroy the usefulness of the evidence; deliberately staged diversions; bizarre deviations from standard protocol; quick destruction of physical evidence subsequent to the crime being committed; a "narrative" of the crime put in place within hours of the crime being committed; cronies in charge of the investigation which is more or less a white-wash; compliant press regurgitates govt misinfo... .etc etc etc.....

Step-by-step you realize 9/11 is JFK assassination writ large.

I love talking about Kennedy. I was just down in Dallas, Texas. You know you can go down there and, ah, to Dealey Plaza where Kennedy was assassinated. And you can actually go to the sixth floor of the School Book Depository. It’s a museum called … The Assassination Museum. I think they named that after the assassination. I can’t be too sure of the chronology here, but …

 

Anyway they have the window set up to look exactly like it did on that day. And it’s really accurate, you know. ’Cause Oswald’s not in it.

 

Yeah, yeah, so wow, that’s cool. Painstaking accuracy, you know. It’s true. It’s called the ‘Sniper’s Nest’. It’s glassed in, it’s got the boxes sitting there.

 

You can’t actually get to the window as such but the reason they did that, of course, they didn’t want thousands of American tourists getting there each year going [Mimes looking out of window] “No fucking way! I can’t even see the road. FUCK, they’re lying to us. FUCK! Where are they? There’s no fucking way!”

correct Dr. Bonzo - create a massive shock trauma and amidst the confusion the WAR operations can move full speed ahead, and at the same time the cabal takes the opportunity to rearrange gooberment in a myriad of ways ....

i don't envy the people that strategize these events and make them happen -

i listen to Craig Hulet's podcasts sometimes and went to his site to see if he had a recent one for his take on the Syria/Russia-Putin situation, and he's pretty sure that Putin has said NO MORE and means it - and yes, we're on the edge of a conventional type WWIII type of conflict ...

....as someone the other day said, another day, in the bizarro world of "As the World Wars Turn" or something like that :)  - and as Herr Martin Armstrong warns, "Things Are Gettin' Real !"

Hulet notes that unlike ZH faithful, more Amurricans are blissfully ignorant of the seriousness of what's happening ... as our current shame-stream media keeps the regular doses of shock-shooting events as the sheeple-prod to maintain their attention ...
