Peter and Mickey spend the hour with David Talbot, author of “The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA and the Rise of America’s Secret Government.” According to Talbot, Dulles — a Wall Street lawyer turned spymaster — shaped the modern CIA, defied the will ofPresidents, and was complicit in the JFK assassination. Talbot says that Dulles’ influence continues into modern times, in government acitivities such as torture, rendition, and pervasive surveillance.
