The IPS has managed to recruit CIA employees who broke with the agency and leaked top-secret information. Several IPS leaders also work with rogue CIA agent Phillip Agee, who has made career of propagating Soviet disinformation while openly acknowledging his own Communist sympathies and the support of Cuban Communists. And former US Senator James Abourezk, founder of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and an outspoken supporter of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), is an IPS trustee.6[ 6 Broken Seals, Op cit., passim; Findley, P., They Dare to Speak Out, Lawrence HIll Books, Chicago, 1989. p. 98] via The Plot to Hijack the CIA, Anti-CommunistAnalyst.com
[IPS’] Abourezk maintains a friendly relationship with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, whom he describes as “a very smart, charming guy.” He also represented Ayatollah Khomeni’s Islamic Republic of Iran in a $56 billion lawsuit against the deposed Shah.
Abourezk sued National Geographic magazine claiming they improperly acquired his original photographs. He also filed a suit against the Reagan administration to allow the Sandanista Interior Minister into the United States. Abourezk took New York Air to court for false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress for not letting him off a plane that was delayed three hours on the tarmac.

... Those familiar with Agee, etc. may remember that CounterSpy played a role in blowing the cover of CIA operative Richard Welch, which led to Welch’s assassination. Powell’s book describes numerous contacts between Agee and Soviet and Cuban intelligence.

He remembers clearly Philip Agee, the onetime CIA agent who vowed “to expose CIA agents” and drive them out of the countries where they were operating. He still remembers vividly the Covert Action Information Bulletin, which listed hundreds of names, including that of Richard Kinsman. Kinsman, who worked in Jamaica, would be killed in 1980 when his home was attacked with a submachine gun and an explosive device. ———Link
