PHILIP AGEE (July 19, 1935 - Jan. 7, 2008) was a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) case officer who became disillusioned by the CIA and its tactics. His 1975 book, “Inside the Company: CIA Diary,” infuriated American officials by identifying about 250 officers, front companies and foreign agents working for the United States. His example inspired several more books and magazines, including Covert Action Information Bulletin, written by close associates and sometimes with Mr. Agee’s help, which published the names and often the addresses of hundreds more agency officers working under cover around the world. He spent nearly four decades as an avowed enemy of American foreign policy and particularly of the covert intelligence work that supported it. Deprived of his American passport and expelled from several countries at the request of the United States, he ended up living in Cuba, where he operated a travel Web site, cubalinda.com, and where he died in 2008.
