Philip Burnett Franklin Agee (July 19, 1935 – January 7, 2008) was a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) case officer and writer, best known as author of the 1975 book, Inside the Company: CIA Diary, detailing his experiences in the CIA. Agee joined the CIA in 1957, and over the following decade had postings in Washington, D.C., Ecuador, Uruguay and Mexico. After resigning from the Agency in 1968, he became a leading opponent of CIA practices. A co-founder of CovertAction Quarterly, he died in Cuba in January 2008. Agee became something of a minor celebrity in the United Kingdom after the publication of Inside the Company. He revealed the identities of dozens of CIA agents in the CIA London station. After numerous requests from the American government as well as an MI6 report that blamed Agee's work for the execution of two MI6 agents in Poland, a request was put in to deport Agee from the UK. Although Agee fought this and was supported by MPs, journalists, and private citizens, he eventually departed from the UK on June 3, 1977, and traveled to the Netherlands. Agee was also eventually expelled from the Netherlands, France, West Germany and Italy. Agee was accused by U.S. President George H. W. Bush of being responsible for the death of Richard Welch, a Harvard-educated classicist who was murdered by the Revolutionary Organization 17 November while heading the CIA Station in Athens.

Also includes Appendix: Legal Aspects of the Holohan Case; The Italian Trial; Why Icardi Didn't Sue for Libel; and A New Law. Aldo Icardi was America's first master spy. He spent eight months behind the German lines in Italy, the last five of them as master spy, operating in the area norhwest of Milano. This book is the true account of how he got into this exciting business, and of what happened to him while he was behind the lines. He tells how it feels to huddle in a hole in a wall while enemy soldiers search for him just three feet away. He tells about being trailed by German bloodhounds. He describes the wild frenzy, the uncontrolled violence, that gripped northern Italy during the last days of the war. He also relates everything that happened the night that Major William V. Holohan, his commanding officer, disappeared. Mr. Icardi has written this book because he has been accused falsely of murdering Major Holohan. This book is his defense--the only recourse available to him to clear his name. In presenting his case, he has been forced to make a few charges of his own: of irresponsibility, negligence, and blind stupidity on the part of American public officials.
