The truth behind the ‘secret’ Phoenix program

The truth about the Phoenix Program, which was first revealed in a 2009 investigation by the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, is far more complicated than we were led to believe.

It was an attempt to shut down the free press and shut down dissent.

And it was a massive mistake.

After years of effort, the Phoenix program was finally exposed by the House Select Committee on Intelligence in 2008.
