Richard Helms

Former CIA officer Miles Seeley writes: Dick Helms went from entry-level OSS to CIA Director. In my opinion, he was the best DCI ever.

RH: WAISers send me pieces pages long, far too long to post. Miles errs on the side of brevity. Could he tell us something about Helms, who like Robert Gates went from entry level to CIA Director? I have a vague recollection of his problems.
