Q&A With Stephen Kinzer

Stephen Kinzer talked about his most recent book, The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War. He points out that John Foster served as secretary of state and Allen as CIA director, saying, “These two brothers were about the most extraordinary pair of siblings to emerge in American history, at least up to that point.” He explains how the Dulles brothers simultaneously led the “overt and covert” operations of U.S. foreign policy. They despised communism. Mr. Kinzer discusses how the Dulles brothers are ultimately responsible for many of the country’s contemporary geopolitical problems. He describes their roles in multiple U.S.-led overthrows, including that of Prime Minister Mossadegh in Iran and President Arbenz in Guatemala. Mr. Kinzer also highlights the personality and character traits of the brothers including the fact that Allen had numerous extramarital affairs and John Foster never smiled.
