The New Diplomacy continued to escalate today as CBS Miami published a story about one of our government’s biggest secrets – the story about how the CIA radicalized Theodore Kaczynski. Much of the information presented in this story was obtained from Alston Chase, the author of the Unabomber article published by The Atlantic. As such, the story published by CBS Miami broke no new ground, though they did say that they asked Harvard to release the documents related to the psychological study involving Kaczynski. Harvard, of course, denied their request.
Incidentally, my government has “told” me that the reason why Alston Chase believes so strongly that Harvard radicalized Kaczynski is because Chase himself participated in the study.
