Street Man. The CIA Career of Mike Ackerman

By Ackerman, E.C. "Mike

New York: Writers Alliance, 1976. Paperback. 149p., softbound in 8x5.5 inch decorated wraps (the decorations being two photoportraits of our hero), perfectbound but so far so good. Cover has a sun-line across the front and a spot of soil to back, and a private library accession numeral on titlepage. Sound and clean, a very good copy that is inscribed and signed by Ackerman. Dedication page is an hommage to Richard Welch: invokes ideal noble guardian of Plato's Republic and the espionage commanded to Moses by JHVH. This tribute to Welch reveals Ackerman to be a CIA loyalist, whatever his protests here. Richard Welch was a CIA station head outed by nuns in Peru, and when rerouted to Greece, offed by Athenians who wanted their country back. In Athens Welch lived in the same house an earlier chief of station had occupied, and was a loose-lip; a Newsweek journalist attending a COS Christmas party wondered at Welch's lack of caution. The habitual porosity of cover may have inspired Langley to assign RW a new role: martyr, ergo saint.

News from the Sand Castle [leaflet mailed to SDS members by the FBI as part of a COINTELPRO misinformation campaign]

By Bernie

n.p.: [FBI], 1969. 8.5x11 inch leaflet, mimeographed one side, faint fold creases, short closed edge tears, otherwise very good. This leaflet and the circumstances of its mailing, intended to disrupt plans for a major anti-war demonstration planned for April 5, 1969, are discussed in "Assault on the Left: The FBI and the Sixties Antiwar Movement" by James Kirkpatrick Davis and Edwin Hoyt (pages 114-115). It comprises several paragraphs criticizing the competing factions in SDS, especially Progressive Labor ("PL still rammed the Maoist line down to our gonads"). It suggests that those who had worked for campus revolution "will probably re-join the plastic society for self-protection." Our consignor received this leaflet in the mail at the time of its original distribution; he recognized it as a police or FBI provocation and kept it as a souvenir. His impression at the time was that the New York regional SDS mailing list had been pilfered by The Man, and this and similar leaflets signed "Bernie" were mailed anonymously to those on the mailing list. Later researchers, including Davis and Hoyt above, confirmed this hunch.
