CIA on UCI Campus

Irvine -- This evening's edition of Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, focuses on CIA recruitment on the UCI campus. This past Tuesday, the CIA held a recruitment session at UCI, a follow-up to their booth at UCI's Tech Fair on October 20, 1999. The show airs this evening from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM, and is web-cast live via

A strong presence of protesters at the event this past Tuesday forced the CIA recruiter to cut short his presentation and "bail out" of the room. We bring you a report on that event, as well as an interview with show host Daniel Tsang (conducted by KUCI's News Gap host John Earl) taped earlier in the week, about his case, Tsang v. CIA. In addition, we repeat an interview with Tsang's lead attorney in that case, Kate Martin, about the significance of the lawsuit, which was settled out of court with the CIA paying $46,000, expunging its file on Tsang, and promising not to spy on him again. But the case indicated that the CIA does not follow the Privacy Act's prohibition against spying on the First Amendment-protected activities of American citizens and permanent residents.

We also bring listeners a regular news update each week.
