In Defense of the CIA's Moral Compass

Publisher: The Cipher Brief
May 31, 2018
Day Pitney Author(s) Steven A. Cash

Steven Cash authored an op-ed, "In Defense of the CIA's Moral Compass," for The Cipher Brief. The piece opposes views set forth in an op-ed published by The Wall Street Journal that question the Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) history, culture and morality. Cash, a Counsel in Day Pitney's Washington, D.C. and New York offices and a former CIA Operations Officer, shares his first-hand experiences at the CIA, where "Morality was central." He writes, "CIA officers, by virtue of the Agency's history and culture, rigorous training, continued oversight from both within and outside the Agency, are intensely aware of the criticality of morality."
