Thomas Donohue, the senior CIA officer in charge of Covert Action programs in Vietnam from 1964-1966, he managed the 
development of the CIA’s paramilitary “covert action” programs that Brickham and Komer incorporated in Phoenix, 
including the “counter-terror,” “political action,” and “census grievance” programs. A comparative religion graduate 
of Columbia University – and a garrulous, blustering product and practitioner of Cook County, Illinois politics – Donohue 
joined the CIA because he perceived the cold war as "a growth industry." Donohue is the prototype of the mythic 
CIA officer as charming, fast-talking, snake oil salesman.
