    Sure will. Lots of the CIA's little activities will be coming to light.

    You will find that 'the CIA' actually did little or nothing.

    But you will discover that the US military was highly effective in the war of deception and secrets against the Soviets, far better then people think.

    For example, we knew exactly what orders the Russian subs got at their secure base at petropavlosk in the Pacific for years, despite the fact they didn't use radio trafic of any kind.

    How?

    They used telephone cables under the sea of oktosk, and one of our subs tapped the line in the early 60s and the Russians never found out.

    Yeah we Americans are a bunch of sneaky, underhanded bastards when we put our minds to it. :)

    Just remember that when we're trying to figure out why the rest of the world seems moderately annoyed with us.

    Not saying we weren't the good guys in the cold war and all. We must have done something to annoy the Israeli's at least once though.

    another government lie exposed only decades later when it doesn't matter anymore. I can't wait for the gwb docs to come out in 2040-2050.

    As a matter of international law, is this in the catagory of "finders keepers"? :tongue:
