From 1948 through 1952, Muller lived in Washington DC area and worked closely with the top leadership of the CIA and the Truman Administration. Muller Kept regular journals during this period, putting down the secret activities of the fledgling CIA and his own observations about the inner working of the White House and its top aides. The former Gestapo chief never thought that his private comments would be made public and he wrote about life in official Washington in plain, unvarnished words. The historical and political realities of the beginning of the Cold War, the McCarthy probes and Muller’s part in them, The Korean War, Anti-Semitism in official circles, the assassination attempt on Truman, CIA’s plan to overthrow foreign Governments, high-level theft of Government funds, Muller’s connection with Kim Philby and other Soviet agents are all found in the journals.
