Letter from Lisa Pease: May 27, 2008

" ... Remember that McAdams was a representative of ICPSR - a sub-institute under the Univ. of Mich. ISR. Also - John McAdams' dean was the one running that program. McA got his Ph.D. not at the KSG, but at the graduate school of arts and sciences.

"Ever meet William Kline, McA?

"Quoting some more:

"'As recently as 1987, Harvard University agreed to take on a $1.2 million study in conjunction with the Agency to study probelms in intelligence assessment and foreign policy, using the Phillippines as a model. The CIA analysts in charge of that study was William Kline.

"'The CIA and academia have an almost fully cooperative relationship: trading information and resources and supporting each other in the face of hostility.

"'Very rarely do university adminstrators and professors resist working with government agencies like the CIA, and when they do the Agency takes great offense.

"'The Agency vehemently objects to any attempt to block its efforts to 'tap the wisdom of academia.' If restrictions are placed on its activities, the CIA finds some way to work around them.

"Although Harvard and a few other universities have expressed some resistance to the academic arm of the Agency (Harvard is still one of the CIA's most loyal and active academic supporters), most university administrators have no problems with the CIA. ...

"The struggle against the Central Intelligence Agency and university militarism in general will not be carried out by those who run our universities. It will be carried out by the students, faculty and community members who are not entrenched in CIA business and who do care about the truth and about acting on it."
