Title:
Landon Chronicles (1942): Kenneth on Why the Office of Counter Intelligence (OCI) Became the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) (hour 65, clip 20)
Date:
1942
Description:
Kenneth explains why the OCI became the OSS. The OCI was concerned with developing and coordinating information, and its staff consisted of scholars on the areas of interest. The OSS included that function but also had other branches of "activists wearing uniforms" and operators behind enemy lines, which is to say, espionage agents who were taking direct action in the war. The new function required a new name for the agency. The purely intelligence part of the OSS moved over to the State Department. (Length 1:37)
