'Spies, Lies & Sneaky Guys' lecture series set through May 21

3:00 p.m., Feb. 25, 2003--“Spies, Lies & Sneaky Guys: Espionage and Intelligence with Practitioners of the Craft” is the theme of UD’s 2003 Global Agenda Lecture Series. The series opens Wednesday, Feb. 26, with David W. Carey, a UD alumnus and former executive director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the agency’s number three position. All free public lectures are held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in Clayton Hall.

David W. Carey, UD alumnus and former executive director of the CIA
Carey’s talk, "White Hats: Accomplishments of the CIA,” will draw on his 32 years of experience—through most of the Cold War—in the nation's top spy agency.

Other speakers in the Global Agenda Series include a former Soviet KGB secret agent who spied on the United States, a former CIA agent who spied on the Soviet bloc during the Cold War, another intelligence officer who prowled the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan and a top executive of the CIA. Other speakers include a U.S. military intelligence officer, who may be able to discuss intelligence during the possible upcoming war against Iraq, and top U.S. officials involved with aerial espionage, cryptography and signals intelligence.

Carey retired from the CIA in 2001 as executive director, a title often referred to as the chief operating officer, or number three person, in the agency.

While executive director at the CIA from July 1997 to April 2001, Carey was responsible for everything from strategic planning to daily operations. Before assuming that role, he was director and one of the founders of the DCI Crime and Narcotics Center, the director of the Office of Near Eastern and South Asian Analysis and deputy director of the Office of Global Issues.

He joined Oracle Corp. in September 2001 as vice president of information assurance. At Oracle, Carey built and directs the Oracle Information Assurance Center in Reston, Va. Center personnel work with partners in federal, state and local government, the private sector and academia to enhance the understanding and application of information assurance technology. The center also provides the focus of Oracle's involvement with the critical infrastructure protection community.

Carey, who is married and has one child, has a bachelor's degree in agricultural economics from Cornell University and a master's in business administration from the University of Delaware.

Upcoming lectures slated for 7:30 p.m., Wednesdays, in Clayton Hall include:

  • March 12–"Spy vs. Spy," featuring Oleg Kalugin, former Soviet KGB agent in the United States, and Paul Redmond, former CIA director of counterintelligence against the Soviet Union. Redmond led the CIA’s investigation of convicted spy Aldrich Ames;

  • March 26–"Intrigue of the Mideast Bazaar" with Martha Kessler, an intelligence officer on the Middle East from 1970 to 2000, honored for her work during the Lebanon crisis (1970s-80s). Kessler will discuss the rise of political Islam, the Iran-Iraq war (1980s), the Persian Gulf War (1991) and Middle East peace negotiations;

  • April 9–"Coded Messages" with Gen. Michael Hayden, director, U.S. National Security Agency. The nation's most secretive intelligence gathering agency, NSA collects and decodes electronic transmissions around the globe;

  • April 23–"Eyes in the Skies" with Joanne Isham, director of the CIA's National Imagery and Mapping Agency. NIMA analyzes aerial imagery of key locations such as Iraq, North Korea, India, Pakistan and, during the Cold War, the USSR. Among many other accomplishments, NIMA discovered the presence of Soviet nuclear missiles in Cuba in 1962, triggering the Cuban Missile Crisis;

  • May 7–"The Main Enemy" with James Risen, award-winning author and intelligence correspondent for The New York Times; and

  • May 21–“Military Intelligence” with Capt. Tania Chacho, U.S. Military Academy, West Point. Chacho will present a post-mortem on how intelligence will have been used in an attack against Iraq this year and an explanation of how intelligence plays into military operations.

Global Agenda is a program of the University of Delaware's “America and the Global Community” initiative, and is presented in association with the World Affairs Council of Wilmington. For more information, directions and updates, check [www.udel.edu/global] or call 831-2355.
