SANTO DOMINGO.- During the United States intervention of Dominican Republic in April ,1965 the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had the world’s second largest station in this country, only after Saigon, Vietnam, said the historian Bernard Vega yesterday.
He said that’s one of the reasons for the CIA’s many reports on Dominican Republic.
Dominican Republic’s ex- ambassador in Washington said that during the 1965 Revolution, after World War II the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) is sent for the first time to another country, and came to Dominican Republic with some 28 agents.
Vega, interviewed by the newspaper Hoy, said the documents declassified by the CIA on Tuesday had as much as two thirds of the text erased, and many are reports on Dominican Republic.
This, he said, is evidence the espionage agency isn’t truly interested in presenting essential areas on its work in the country, and instead it’s an attempt to improve its deteriorated image.
