Shapira, Ian. "CIA Memoirs Offer Revelations and Settle Scores Among Spies." Washington Post, 4 Jun. 2012. []

"The proliferation of CIA memoirs has been fueled by the public's appetite for insider accounts into the country's war on terrorism.... The books often command six-figure advances, generate headlines and propel their authors onto network television shows.... [T]he memoirs unspool secrets not easily obtainable under the Freedom of Information Act. Tales about recruiting informants or office gamesmanship at Langley often find their way past the agency's Publications Review Board." Other memoirs are on the way, including from Jack Devine and John Rizzo.

The White House announced on 3 September 2010 that "President Obama will award the Medal of Honor ... to Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Richard Etchberger for his valor in saving the lives of three wounded comrades at a then-secret base [Lima Site 85] in Laos in [March] 1968.... After Etchberger saved his fellow airmen, he was shot and killed by enemy fighters. His heroics were kept a secret for years because the United States wasn't supposed to have troops in Laos during the Vietnam War....
