Exhibit Opening for "Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs"

January 17, 2014 | 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. | Great Hall
You and a guest are invited to attend the exhibition opening of “Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America.”
 
Created by the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC, “Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America” dramatically illustrates the challenge of securing our nation without compromising the civil liberties upon which it was founded. From the Revolutionary War to the today, “Spies, Traitors and Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America” provides unprecedented perspective into terror on American soil. The exhibition uncovers the forgotten stories of domestic terrorists and foreign agents, militant radicals and saboteurs, who have threatened America’s sense of security over the past 200 years. 
 
The exhibition opening will include a keynote presentation by Peter Earnest, the founding executive director of the International Spy Museum and a 35-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Earnest served 25 years as a case officer in the CIA’s Clandestine Service, primarily in Europe and the Middle East, and ran a wide range of intelligence collection and covert-action operations, including counterintelligence and double-agent operations, working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Assigned to the Office of the Director of Central Intelligence, he served as an Inspector with the Inspector General, a liaison with the U.S. Senate, and as the director of media relations. A member of the Senior Intelligence Service, he received the CIA’s Medal of Merit and Career Intelligence Medal. He also served as the Chairman of the Board of the Association for Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO). As Museum director, he has played a leading role in its extraordinary success as a Washington attraction and he has frequently been interviewed by major media outlets as an expert on current intelligence issues.
 
After the program, guests are invited and encouraged to tour the exhibit. This exhibit is designed to be viewed by families and schools, although the content is most appropriate for children ages 11 and up.
