Description

WOULD YOU LIKE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT FAMOUS SPIES ARE LIKE?

ASK SOMEONE WHO KNEW THEM

The Cold War Museum, in cooperation with Old Bust Head Brewing Company, invites you to attend a presentation by noted DIA and FBI counterintelligence officer Cal Carnes on

MOLES AND DEFECTORS I HAVE KNOWN

Mr. Carnes's presentation will discuss moles/traitors John Walker (Navy), Aldrich Ames (CIA), Robert Hanssen (FBI), and Jay Pollard (NAVY) to offer an insight into their activities and motivation. As Mr. Carnes personally knew two of these moles, Hanssen and Pollard, he will add his impressions on their personalities and characteristics. He will also talk about defectors and other Soviet Intelligence Officers he knew and met, such as debriefing Oleg Gordievskiy, the acting KGB rezident in London as well as various GRU officers. He considered Nicholas Artomonov, aka Nick Shadrin, Soviet Navy Officer defector, a friend.

Cal Carnes has had a 40-year career in the US Intelligence Community. Most of it was as a Counterintelligence Officer with DIA's Counterintelligence Division, FBI's Intelligence Division, the Naval Investigative Service's Counterintelligence Directorate, and the Army Counterintelligence Center. He also served in Naval Reserve Intelligence, retiring as a Commander, with service mainly as an Officer/Agent for the Naval Investigative Service. Following his government service, Carnes was a Counterintelligence Contractor for the DIA/Defense HUMINT Service and the Defense Department Counterintelligence Field Activity. He now is an Independent Contractor and Role-Player/Trainer for the FBI Academy, the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy, and most recently the Joint Military Attaché School.

This is the sixth in a series of presentations sponsored by the Museum featuring expert eyewitnesses to significant Cold War and related events and activities.

Current Calendar of Scheduled Forthcoming Presentation Series Events.

Ticket availability for these events will normally appear on Eventbrite about 2.5 months prior to the event. They are normally spaced about 2 months apart, but if a special set of circumstances arises we will add others as needed. Everyone who has attended a prior event will be notified after the next event has been posted online. Since most of the prior events have sold out about a month in advance, you might want to act promptly.

  • January 14th: Blending In--Special Forces Berlin: The Top Secret Teams Combining Military, Intelligence, and Linguistic Skills in the OSS Tradition During the Cold War. James Stejskal, one of the SFB members in the 70’s and 80’s and later a CIA operator in Africa and elsewhere, will draw on his recent book Special Forces Berlin to show how the “PhD who could win a bar fight” tradition secretly stayed alive after OSS was disbanded after World War II. These teams pioneered our modern unconventional warfare and counterterrorism techniques used by today's special operations forces. Their existence was so secret that their mission was only declassified in 2014.

  • March 18th: Spy Chiefs. Mark Stout, co-editor of the new book Spy Chiefs, to be published in February 2018 by Georgetown University Press, will talk about British and American intelligence leaders since 1940 (Vol. I), focusing on the Cold War period, with some attention to spy chiefs in other parts of the world (Vol. II). The publisher describes the first volume this way:This first volume of Spy Chiefs broadens and deepens our understanding of the role of intelligence leaders in foreign affairs and national security in the United States and United Kingdom from the early 1940s to the present. The figures profiled range from famous spy chiefs such as William Donovan, Richard Helms, and Stewart Menzies to little-known figures such as John Grombach, who ran an intelligence organization so secret that not even President Truman knew of it. The volume tries to answer six questions arising from the spy-chief profiles: how do intelligence leaders operate in different national, institutional, and historical contexts? What role have they played in the conduct of international relations and the making of national security policy? How much power do they possess? What qualities make an effective intelligence leader? How secretive and accountable to the public have they been? Mark is program director of the MA in Global Security Studies Program at Johns Hopkins University and the former historian of the International Spy Museum.

  • May 6th: Code Girls: American Women Code Breakers of WWII. Liza Mundy, a former Washington Post reporter and author of the forthcoming book Code Girls, will talk about this untold piece of history, including about women code breakers at Vint Hill and its sister station in DC, Arlington Hall. Vint Hill was one of the first places in the US military where women were allowed to do more than the traditional duties of nursing, clerical work, food service, etc., with many talented women working as both radio intercept operators and cryptanalysts. (Many of the latter were former math teachers who had the innate pattern-recognition talents that cryptography requires.)
