commit perjury before a Senate committee." (Ibid). Davis leaves
out the fact that perjury is precisely what Helms committed
before a Senate committee in 1973 about CIA involvement in Chile.

He also fails to tell the reader anything about the Helms-Bissell
relationship, which makes his "vouching" for Bissell almost
humorous. When the two were in the CIA, there were few rivalries
more pronounced and few resentments more public than the one
between Bissell and Helms, who resented his boss because Bissell
kept him out of the loop on some operations. Helms, according to
Evan Thomas' The Very Best Men, was happy to see the Bay of Pigs
capsize because it meant Bissell would be out and that Helms
would move up ( p. 268). So, to most objective readers, if Helms
has now switched to endorsing Bissell, there must be some
extenuating circumstances involved. There are, and again, Davis
does not tell the reader about them. As the Inspector General's
report tells us, when Dulles and Bissell began cleaning out their
desks, a new team took over the Castro plots, namely Bill Harvey
and Ted Shackley. The man they reported to was Helms, the highest
link in the chain (Alleged Assassination Plots pp. 148-153). In
other words, the alchemy of John Davis with Bissell helps get
Helms off the hook for responsibility for the continuing
unauthorized plots. And
