Raleigh hosts spy conference

August 23, 2012 by  

The 8th annual Raleigh Spy Conference is got underway yesterday, August 22, and concludes tomorrow at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh, North Carolina. The organizers of the Conference no doubt used flyer printing and poster printing to raise awareness among those interested in espionage aware that the event is occurring, so as to draw in as many local citizens as possible to the three-day event.

According to Bernie Reeves, founder of the conference and editor and publisher of Raleigh Metro magazine, this year’s conference brings new information on Hoover, Castro, and Deep Throat, and on the latest themes and issues in espionage, as well as many speakers and historians from the CIA and the FBI.

Brian Latell, an analyst formerly with the CIA and who wrote a book called ‘Castro’s Secrets’, is the keynote speaker of the conference. Latell’s book contains interviews with former Cuban agents and inlcudes declassified documents and information regarding the intentions of Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate President Kennedy, as well as his relating of these intentions to Cuban intelligence as a way to prove his dedication to the revolution in that country.

John Fox, a historian with the FBI, will be re-examining J. Edgar Hoover, the former director of the FBI, and providing a profile that is diametrically opposite to the one that Clint Eastwood provided in his film of Hoover from last year.

There will also be stories which are now declassified about the undersea mission of Ice Station Zebra and a profile of the modern terrorist by the director of the Interpol in Puerto Rico.
