This article gives a 'good cop bad cop' analysis of Australia's two party history since the fall of the Whitlam Government. It looks at the evolution of economic theory and foreign involvement in wars over this period.
First published on BrasscheckTV and Youtube as The Second Life of a CIA Double Agent (6/5/14). See also: On SBS Dateline: Christopher Boyce blows whistle on CIA corruption of Australian democracy, Labor Party & trade union movement (19/2/14).
In this explosive interview, meet Christopher Boyce, who was jailed in the 1970s for selling classified US information to the KGB in the Soviet Union.
"I just wanted to gouge CIA and do the most damaging thing to them that I could". And Chris Boyce did just that. Boyce recounts his time working for a CIA subsidiary, and makes claims that during the time of Gough Whitlam's troubled government, the CIA was interfering in Australian politics, and its trade unions. Now living in virtual anonymity with this wife, Boyce finds solace in flying his pet falcon, no matter how pessimistic his outlook remains.
Update, 19 Feb 2014: You can watch the program on-line here. Apologies for this late notice, but after serving his prison sentence of 24 years for spying on the United States Government, Christopher Boyce will reveal all in a program to be broadcast tonight at 9.30 tonight on Dateline on the free-to-air SBS One television station.
