Now that perestroika has at last stroik the CIA, and head spook James Woolsey appears on the Today show and Larry King Live, it must be a lot less fun to be Noam Chomsky. Then again, with the agency still spreading disinformation (e.g., that Jean-Bertrand Aristide did time on the funny farm), just like it did back when the commies were out to get us, the linguist and foreign policy gadfly ought to have something to say when he discusses the “Implications and Consequences of the Clinton Administration’s Foreign Policy” at the 15th anniversary celebration of the magazine CovertAction Quarterly, the left’s answer to Foreign Affairs. At 8 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 10th & G Sts. NW. $10. For reservations call (202) 331-9763. (Bill Gifford)
