I guess the CIA would gladly admit that they committed assassinations

"There are two histories : official history, lying, and then secret history, where you find the real causes of events."
~Honore de Balzac

A reader comments below regarding Roland Haas.
"You said this: "While the government makes no comment or admits any knowledge of Haas' past relationship the book reveals an unknown world of assassinations."
I guess you missed where the CIA did actually comment on Haas after his death, something they rarely, if ever, do. See here: I'll save you the trouble of looking it up. From the article: "'This individual was never a CIA employee,' said Paula Weiss, CIA spokeswoman. Specifically, the national intelligence agency said Haas wasn't a contractor, freelancer or hired in any capacity." Also, US Army Reserve Command, where Haas worked at Fort McPherson, did not take a position on Haas's book and stated that he wrote it on his personal time and was exercising his right of free speech. They tried to deflect all they could, because bringing more attention to the matter would have embarrassed them. It is sad that some folks have to live vicariously through a fantasy that someone else has dreamed up to fit a certain worldview. Haas knew exactly what to write while still alive--he never had to clear his book through the agency since he was never employed by them and he could always use the old, "Well of course they will deny they employed an assassin trick." Haas never figured that he would die within a few years of writing the book and that the agency actually would comment."

I guess the CIA would gladly admit that they committed assassinations, yea right, no way. Unfortunately with Haas' death he can no longer defend his statements. But according to an unnamed source who worked for The Company he knew of Haas. While he did not confirm, he did not deny Haas' activities. An agency that is secret and cloaks it's activities would find Haas' book an embarrassment and since he was never officially on payroll they can arguably deny any knowledge; credible denial. As they said in Mission Impossible, "if you or any of your IM force is compromised the secretary will disavow any knowledge of you." I guess Haas has been disavowed.
