Harry Truman writes: “Limit CIA Role to Intelligence”

On 22 December 1963, on the one month anniversary of JFK's assassination, former President Harry Truman published and op-ed in the Washington Post about how he was “disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment” to keep the President promptly and fully informed and had become “an operational and at times policy-making arm of the government.” Truman's editorial only ran in the first printing of the Post before it was pulled. Good summary article on "Fifty Years of Struggle" blog, with copy of Truman's original article (click to enlarge).
