Matthew Sweet - Operation Chaos: The Vietnam Deserters Who Fought the CIA, the Brainwashers, and Themselves — in conversation with David Smith

Upcoming Event
Sunday, February 18, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

By 1968, nearly a thousand Americans had gone into exile in Sweden to protest the war in Vietnam. A combination of draft dodgers and deserters, the group wanted not just an end to the conflict but a revolution. The CIA took them seriously, infiltrated, and threw their plans into chaos. Decades later, investigating this little-known chapter of the ‘60s, Sweet, a British journalist and BBC radio presenter, finds many of the participants still caught up in a tangle of conspiracy theories, half-truths, and suspicions. Many have gone on to join a cult headed by Lyndon LaRouche. Sweet will be in conversation with David Smith, The Guardian‘s Washington bureau chief.
