Air America: The true history

During the Vietnam War, the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) clandestinely operated Air America, a civilian airline. This covert airline played a crucial role in transporting personnel, equipment, and supplies to remote areas as part of various covert operations. Recently, US lawmakers introduced a bipartisan bill aimed at offering retirement benefits to former Air America personnel. Direct Impact’s Rick Sanchez explores the history of Air America and discusses the proposed bill with CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, who provides expert analysis on the topic.
