Former CIA Inspector General Frederick Hitz, who was responsible for covering up the CIA's involvement in delivering crack cocaine to American inner cities, has been rewarded with a prestigious "teaching" position, the Goldman Sachs Chair, at Princeton University.
On March 16, 1998, Hitz initially let the proverbial cat out of the bag by admitting to US Representatives that the CIA had maintained relationships with companies and individuals the CIA knew were involved in the drug business, i.e. "fronts" and "assets" through which the Agency could maintain "plausible deniability."
Hitz also revealed that in 1982 the CIA and Department of Justice had made an agreement not to report any knowledge it might have of drug dealing by CIA assets.
That's much better than a "don't ask, don't tell" policy since all criminality of the CIA and DoJ are kept off the record.
After these inadvertent revelations, of course, Hitz backtracked.
Now that Hitz has a position at Princeton University, it's only fair to ask -- was the Goldman Sachs "Chair" his reward for the CIA version of "omerta" or silence?
After all the CIA's former cover-up meister Hitz even has his own website
