Karen Paget talked about her book Patriotic Betrayal: The Inside Story of the CIA’s Secret Campaign to Enroll American Students in the Crusade Against Communism, in which she recounts the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) surreptitious involvement in the U.S. National Student Association in the 1960s. In her book, the author suggests that the agency used the student organization as a conduit in its efforts against communism. Ms. Paget, a member of the student organization in 1965, spoke about the CIA’s plans and the report by Ramparts magazine in 1967, which exposed the agency’s involvement. Ms. Paget spoke with author and Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism lecturer Adam Hochschild. close
