---------------- RADIO X rcW4? t*lQ e 4 110/13 : CIA-RDP88-01350R0 PUBLIC AFFAIRS STAFF PROGRAM Barry Farber Show FULL TEXT STATION WHAL Radio `Syndicated Washington, D. C. BARRY FARBER: I'm Barry Farber. And I'm prejudiced in-favor of spy stories, fiction and nonfiction. I just can't .think of a more exciting kind of fiction or nonfiction, and I'm lucky-because I have the purveyors, the perpetrators, the preservers of the best spy fiction, the best spy nonfiction, in the United States..

And I'd like you to discuss that, because this comes as new to a lot of people. It's like saying the Holy Roman Empire was neither holy nor Roman, nor was it an empire. You say that the CIA is somewhere, you know, nondescript, way down on the totem pole somewhere.' Tell us about it. ANDREW TULLEY: Well, I don't think it's quite accurate to say that the CIA finishes last or in the middle influentially. The CIA is still pretty influential. But it's not the biggest spy agency -It doesn't spend the most money And LLt isn't as pproved For Release 04/10/13 : CIA-RDP88-0135OR000200590001-9
