Former top CIA man Paul Redmond demands retraction of published accusation he was Russian spy
Baer deserves to be called to account for sloppy research on his part and, more so, for relying on the SIU for its findings on Paul Redmond. When I first heard of the SIU, I thought it probably had been formed to keep the three CIA members, all women, two of them known to me professionally, of the SIU busy, out of the hair of their seniors, including Redmond. The unit took itself seriously, however, and concluded that Redmond was a KGB spy, a conclusion with Angleton's stamp all over it. The CIA should have known that if it formed an investigative unit, it would get a result. Not one that would end up in a book, though.
