WEST faculty member discusses 9/11 with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

September 9, 2011

On September 9, WEST-affiliated faculty member Gene Coyle, a retired CIA field operations officer with three decades of experience, will offer  his personal reflections on the mood of the CIA before and after 9/ll.  The event is part of the university’s 10-day “10 Years After 9/11” event to commemorates the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. West European Studies, with the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, will sponsor the event, held from 1-2 p.m. in the Dogwood Room at the Indiana Memorial Union.

On September 6, Coyle spoke about the same topic to the Canadian Broadcasting Company. Coyle discusses whether Americans are safer now than they were in 2001, and says the CIA is a very different organization today than it was 10 years ago.  For example, he said “money was not an object” for the CIA from September 12, 2001 on.
