Description
Edward C. Brady. An army officer, Brady served his first tour in Vietnam in 1965, as an advisor to a Vietnamese Ranger Battalion in Pleiku, volunteered for a second tour and was assigned as a Regional and Popular Forces advisor in Da Lat, where he worked with the VIA Province Officer. While in Da Lat he learned Vietnamese and began to socialize with the Vietnamese. Eventually he was loaned to Australian CIA contractor Ted Derong, who was forming a PRU team in Tuyen Duc Province. Suborned by the CIA, enticed by the Vietnamese, and excommunicated by the Army, Brady - whose family was connected to a powerful U.S. senator and the III Corps commander - was reassigned to the Vietnamese Joint General Staff's Combat Operations Center. When Brady's tour at the JGS ended, the CIA station asked him to capitalize on his well-placed connections. He agreed and was assigned to the Phoenix Directorate as a cover for espionage activities. "So I went over there and spent a couple hours talking to Evan Parker. He said 'We're interested in targeted operations against the civilian part of the Communist party.' And I was ready for that - psychologically and emotionally. Brady discovered that the Vietnamese approach to Phoenix was at odds with the one pressed by Parker and the CIA: "If you really want to get down to cases, no Vietnamese of any significance in the military or in the police didn't know who the truly high-level VCI were - the district chiefs and the province chiefs." But as one top officer said to him, "You don't understand. You don't have any family here. You're going to go home when this operation is over with. But I have a home and a family and kids that go to school. I have a wife that has to go to market. And you want me to set a trap for (the local VCI boss) and kill him when he comes in to see his wife? If we do that, what are they going to do to our wives?" As Brady observes, "To conduct these clandestine police operations and really get at the heart of things, that was kind of immoral to them. That was not cricket. And the Vietnamese were very, very leery of upsetting that." Brady offers an insider's overview of Phoenix operational and organizational flaws and strengths.

Description
George A Carver Jr. In July 1965, Director of Central Intelligence William Raborn assigned Carver as head of the CIA's National Planning Task Force for Vietnam. In this lofty position, Carver made independent recommendations to President Johnson on the most important policy decisions of the war. Carver brought Brickham's proposals, to the highest levels of government and, in the summer of 1967, saw that Phoenix was accepted as official US policy.

Description
William E. Colby: Director of Central Intelligence (1973-1976), Colby was chief of the CIA's Far East Asia Division when Phoenix was created in 1967. He is the CIA officer most closely linked to Phoenix, as a result of his testimony to Congress about the program in 1970 and 1971, as well as at his confirmation hearings in 1973. An artist at dissembling, Colby's dispassionate voice is that of the cold bureaucrat stating, as fact, policy that was contradicted by operational realities.

Description
Colonel Douglas Dillard assigned as the Phoenix Coordinator in IV Corps (the Delta) 1967-1969. A World War Two airborne ranger veteran of the D-Day invasion, Dillard organized Phoenix operations in IV Corps under CIA officer Jim Ward. With his smooth Southern drawl - and an army officer's irreverence for CIA civilians - Dillard provides a colorful description of Phoenix in its initial phase.

Description
Thomas A. Donohue: The senior CIA officer in charge of Covert Action programs in Vietnam from 1964-1966, managed the development of the CIA's paramilitary "covert action" programs that Brickham and Komer incorporated in Phoenix, including the "counter-terror," "political action," and "census grievance" programs. A comparative religion graduate of Columbia University - and a garrulous, blustering product and practitioner of Cook County politics - Donohue joined the CIA because he perceived the cold war as a "growth industry." Donohue is the prototype of the mythic CIA officer as charming, fast-talking, snake oil salesman.

The conscience of CIA Speaks, Fulcher, in an interview with Valentine's research assistant Brendan McQuade, describes Phoenix in all its cultural, social and political dimensions. Wizened, iconoclastic, rational and critical, Fulcher puts Phoenix in its proper historical and contemporary perspective.

Description
Brigadier General James W. Hunt. As a lieutenant colonel in 1971, Hunt ran the Phoenix training program in Saigon and Vung Tau. Privy to the inner-workings of the Phoenix Directorate, he was disturbed by the fact that Phoenix Director John Mason, a career CIA officer, "blatantly lied." As Hunt explains, "Phoenix had been under the CIA; then MACV supposedly took it over. But we [the military] didn't really understand it, and there was always a suspicion. My impression was that John Mason worked for Colby through [Colonel Jake Jacobson], but he also had a close relationship with the chief of station - a professional relationship, back - channeling messages."

Description
Major General Bruce M. Lawlor was a 20-something, high-strung CIA officer involved in Phoenix operations in I Corps in 1971-1973. A Georgetown law graduate and native of Vermont, Lawlor ran one of the infamous CIA counter-terror teams that earned a reputation for brutality in South Vietnam. These counter-terror teams, called PRU were the main action arm of Phoenix. Lawlor later ran for attorney general of Vermont and lost, he says, because the Left smeared him with his CIA record in Phoenix. Although bothered by the rampant corruption at the CIA's managerial level in South Vietnam, Lawlor is a better opponent of the Left and a staunch advocate of the eternal War on Terror. Under Bush he served as the first chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security.

Warren H. Milberg was the CIA Phoenix Officer in charge in Quang Tri Province, 1967-1968. Milberg was raised on Long Island, New York and served his first tour in Vietnam in 1965, as a US Air Force security officer in Da Nang. While in Da Nang, he was secretly recruited by the CIA into its Special Operations Group and soon developed an appetite for high adventure. When Phoenix was formed in 1967, Milberg was one of 44 men asked to manage its operations in the provinces. Milberg was one of two Jewish military officers assigned to Phoenix; the other, however, withdrew because the program mirrored what the Nazis did in France in World War Two. Milberg's words provide a dramatic addition to the narrative.

John P. Muldoon was the CIA officer in charge of the Province Interrogation Center (PIC) Program 1964-1966. The PICs were a foundation stone, along with the counter-terror teams, upon which Brickham built the Phoenix Program. Six feet four inches tall, well over two hundred pounds, Muldoon has a booming bass voice remarkably like Robert Mitchum's. In his uninhibited, unapologetic, and inimitable fashion, Muldoon gives a lecture on the CIA's interrogation program and practices that should be required listening for any serious student of the Vietnam War and War on Terror.

Evan J. Parker, Jr., was the senior CIA officer William Colby chose as the first director of the Phoenix Program in Saigon. A graduate of Cornell and a colleague of Colby's in the elite OSS unit the Jedburghs, Parker was the CIA's ranking expert on unconventional warfare. He had superstar status; he brought the veneer of respectability to the Phoenix program that Colby badly wanted. Soft spoken yet firm, Parker expresses his discomfort as a company man saluting and following orders in a program that he found at times to be tragically ineffective, if not "hideous."

Description
Thomas Polgar was CIA Station Chief in Saigon, 1972-1975. Described as "rigid" and "a bureaucrat" who "was not well versed in intelligence field work," Polgar provides the technical explanations for the CIA programs of which Phoenix was composed, as they existed in the final stages of the Vietnam War. A Hungarian national who fled to the US in 1938, Polgar had just finished a stint as chief investigator for the Senate Select Committee probing the Iran-contra affair when Mr. Valentine interviewed him. His style, like that of Colby's, is that of a detached policy-maker. When properly analyzed and contrasted with the operational realities presented by those involved in the field, Polgar's dissembling stands as a stark reminder of the dangers of "official" propaganda.

Robert R. Simmons was a junior CIA officer involved in Phoenix operations in Phu Yen Province, where he ran the Interrogation Center from November 1970 to June 1972. Simmons also formed a special police intelligence unit that functioned as a counter-terror team; he mounted numerous paramilitary and psychological warfare operations against the Viet Cong Infrastructure. Simmons, like Lawlor, has a grudge against the Left and places loyalty to the CIA above loyalty to the American people. He served as a Republican US Congressman on the Armed Services Committee and is an ardent supporter of the eternal War on Terror. His voice is shrill and laced with unintended ironies.

John S. Tilton was a senior CIA officer and third and final director of the Phoenix Program, 1971-1973. A graduate of George Washington University, Tilton served most of his career in Central and South America, and oversaw CIA operation that captured and killed Che Guevara in Bolivia. Blamed for the unapproved release of a photo taken of Che's spread-eagled corpse - which depicted the revolutionary as a crucified Christ figure - Tilton was exiled to Saigon, the end of the line. Tall and thin, gaunt and gangly, Tilton was a true cold warrior.

James R. Ward was a senior CIA officer and comrade of William Colby and Evan Parker in the elite OSS unit the Jedburghs. Upon his arrival in Vietnam, Ward assisted US Army Colonel Junichi Buhto (also OSS) and Evan Parker in composing the document that enabled the Phoenix Program. Ward then served as the CIA officer in charge of Phoenix program operations in IV Corps, 1967-1969. An earthy man of action (he won an Iron Man contest at the age of 70) and a paramilitary specialist, Ward gives a straightforward, sanitized account of Phoenix in the Delta.

Description
John S. Wilbur, Jr., was a graduate of Yale and a Navy lieutenant assigned to a SEAL team in Vietnam in 1967. After several months of working with CIA counter-terror teams, Wilbur was detached to the CIA and put in charge of its Provincial Reconnaissance Units in the Delta under Jim Ward. Educated and articulate, Wilbur says about his service: "I remember one evening on an LST, right after an operation, sensing there was nothing but anarchy bordering on idiocy in how we were conducting the war. I remember writing a letter in my mind to [Yale University President] Kingman Brewster, telling him how important it was for people who had some moral training and education to be on the ground to prevent the negligent cruelties that occurred. I saw myself as that person."
