On this brief podcast, I just wanted to take a moment to share my memories of 9/11 in London 20 years ago.  I also wanted to give you a quick update about the podcast. We will have two 9/11 specials over the following week.  The podcast will then take a break over October and return on Friday 5th November and continue once a month, with the odd extra episode if time allows. I just want to say if anyone listening was affected in 9/11 you are in my thoughts on this anniversary.
License to Parent On today’s podcast we are joined by former CIA officer Christina Hillsberg, who has written a fantastic book about how she and her husband Ryan have used their CIA training to raise resourceful and self-sufficient children.   Christina’s book is great as it gives a real snap shot of how CIA officers think and gives practical examples of how they use that training in their day to day lives. I personally think the book is great for spy buffs and it is also a great self-help book for adults who don’t plan to raise children but want to sharpen their own personal skills. There is literally something for everyone in this book! You can find out more about Christina and Ryan’s story and their book here: https://www.christinahillsberg.com/ Our film “The Dry Cleaner” has been released! Check out the trailer here:

On this episode of Secrets & Spies, we are joined by former CIA officer and Peabody Award-winning investigative journalist Frank Snepp. Frank was a CIA officer who served in the Vietnam war and he was there at the fall of Saigon, so in light of the recent events in Afghanistan we take a look at the similarity and differences between the fall of Saigon and Kabul. We also discuss the intelligence picture that led up to the chaotic scenes we have witnessed as US and NATO forces attempt to evacuate personnel and Afghan allies from Afghanistan. Frank has asked me to add this about the fall of Saigon: "Because of US Ambassador Graham Martin’s reluctance to accelerate departures and risk upsetting the “controlled conditions he thought were needed for a diplomatic solution to the military crisis, the pullout from Saigon devolved into every man and woman for themselves.  Every agency battled for seat space on outgoing aircraft, violating the quotas assigned to each one. Vietnamese girlfriends and maids were often shoehorned into evacuee lists ahead of Vietnamese who had loyally at great hazard worked with US agencies in sensitive positions.  On the last day of the war there was no master list in the embassy of the Vietnamese at highest risk and most deserving of being flown to safety.  As Snepp points out in his memoir of these events, Decent Interval, nearly 52,000 people were lifted out of Vietnam in the month of April 1975 on American military aircraft – 6,763 Americans and roughly 46,000 Vietnamese and other third-party personnel. Counting people who departed by commercial carriers, undocumented black flights and the 6,000 who came out by barge the total number of evacuees for which the embassy could claim some responsibility that month was 65,000.  Another 65,000 escaped on their own just before the Communist takeover and in the two years that followed, bringing the total evacuees for that period to 140,000. Ambassador Martin told Congress in early 1976 that 22,294 Vietnamese employed by US agencies had been evacuated by April 30 of the previous year. That was a small fraction of the indigenous employees of these agencies and their families – 90,000. To judge from Martin’s figures less than one third of these deeply imperiled people benefitted from the airlift. Only the Defense Attaché’s Office which had largely controlled available aircraft and the boarding process, came close to evacuating all the “locals” on its payroll, 3,800. But Colonel William Le Gro, who headed DAO intelligence operations, later acknowledged that only 20 percent of the Vietnamese whom his staff had ushered onto outgoing aircraft were truly high risk. Out of the 1,900 “indigenous employees” of the CIA station only about 500 were finally evacuated – together with 2,000 others including family members who had enjoyed privileged contacts with the Agency over the years."  You can read more about Frank’s experiences in Vietnam in his excellent books “Decent Interval” and “Irreparable Harm” which are both available to buy via Frank’s website:http://franksnepp.com/ Frank’s journalism and other writings can be viewed on his blog: franksneppexclusives.com/ Check out our past interview with Frank about the CIA mission in Vietnam https://pod.fo/e/213e1 Our film “The Dry Cleaner” has been released!

My short spy film “The Dry Cleaner” is out now on Spyflix You can watch it for free here: https://watch.spyflix.com/en/index.html (The film is available 8-14th August) The Dry Cleaner was awarded an “Honourable mention” by the judges who watched and selected the film.  Judges for the film festival include Simon Cornwell (son of John Le Carré) producer of BBC hit The Night Manager, Joe Wisenberg creator of hit spy show The Americans Alex Cary producer and writer of hit tv shows Homeland and Legends, former CIA officer John Sipher, and actor Laila Robins from Homeland, The Boys and The Blacklist and Hedda Archbold producer of Kermode on Film, Girls on Film and Film Stories Magazine. The Dry Cleaner is contemporary spy drama in which a British intelligence officer tries to recruit a Middle Eastern student who has links to a revolutionary group back in her home country.  The film takes its name from “Dry Cleaning” which is a counter-surveillance technique used by spies to find out if they are being followed. It’s a vital action used by intelligence officers before meeting a covert source. In the field “dry cleaning” can be a matter of life and death. You can find out more about the film here: https://www.chriscarr.co.uk/the-dry-cleaner What the professionals are saying about the film “The Dry Cleaner is an excellent short film. Fascinating plot.  Very well executed. Few post-9/11 spy thrillers show the dangers and risks of counterterrorism work through the perspective of the asset as well as the handler. The Dry Cleaner raises the bar for the spy movie genre.  I look forward to seeing more good things from director Chris Carr.” — Yaya J. Fanusie, former CIA Counterterrorism Analyst “The film shows excellent tradecraft.  It depicts the difficulty of walking the line between cultivating and protecting a human being who is placing his/her trust in you, but also recruiting a source who is needed to provide key information. It also shows the importance of operational security.  The counter surveillance scenes in the film are well done, in fact, there aren’t very many pop culture representations of SDRs that I can say are better than this.” — Dr. Vince Houghton, Historian & Former Curator at the International Spy Museum

LOL the Amazon commercials are such BS. What an awful place to work, from engineer to picker. Worst corporate culture ever, so much burnout and they treat managers like royalty, very hard for them to get fired (yes, I also am talking about fancy engineers too)
