Spy
    (March 30, 1913-October 23, 2002)
    Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (1966-73)
    US ambassador to Iran (1973-76)
    He violated the CIA charter by launching a domestic spying operation after Lyndon B Johnson told him to ‘track down the Communists’ behind anti-war protests.
    When Congress began investigating illegal CIA activities, he ordered the mass destruction of records from the MK-Ultra mind-control program.
    He was given a suspended two-year sentence and fined $2,000 (1977) for giving false testimony to a Congressional committee about CIA involvement in the overthrow of the government of Salvador Allende in Chile.
    CIA historian Keith Melton described him as a professional with ‘a low tolerance for fools.’
    Asked by LBJ to analyze the ‘Domino Theory,’ he concluded that a loss in Vietnam would not damage ‘this country’s ability to play its role as a world power.’
    He refused a demand from John Dean that the CIA bail out the Watergate burglars. As a result, he was fired by President Nixon for ‘disloyalty.’
