Many things we know about the government’s misdeeds started with the research of the CovertAction Quarterly.

Founded by former CIA agent James Agee, it featured research and writing by Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, and Christopher Hitchens and published from 1978 – 2005.

In 2018, former writers and publishers of CovertAction Quarterly relaunched the publication as CovertAction Magazine, which can be found here:


A “debate” between Hitchens and Chomsky on what causes Islamic Extremism.

Hitchens believes it comes from the nature of religion itself.

Chomsky believes US support behind Radical Islam is the key.
