Spy Museum hosts lecture on MH/CHAOS on Oct 26th

A Free lecture at The Spy Museum

Operation MH/CHAOS was the code name for a secret domestic spying program conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency in the late 1960s and early 1970s charged with unmasking any foreign influences on the student antiwar movement. CIA counterintelligence officer Frank Rafalko was a part of the operation.  The New York Times revealed MH/CHAOS in 1974, then Congress investigated, and MH/CHAOS took its place in the pantheon of intelligence abuses.  Rafalko, however, says in MH/CHAOS that the operation was justified and that the CIA was the logical agency to conduct it.  He’ll defend his perspective with dramatic intelligence collected on the New Left and black radicals.

The International Spy Museum is located in Downtown, Washington, DC within the Pennsylvania Quarter neighborhood and stretches the entire city block between 9th and 8th Streets at 800 F Street, NW — one block from the Gallery Place/China Town Metrorail Station and the Verizon Center.
