Priests as Intel Agents, Churches as Covert Intelligence Fronts

It seems kind of obvious that intel would hide within religion-- they are everywhere else-- but apart from some links I'd heard between the CIA and Christian fundamentalism I had heard before, I hadn't given it much thought before. But priests are unique in being given a lot of freedom to move around society, and collect information, so they probably make particularly good intel agents.

This is a really interesting conversation with Peter Levenda, on fake churches that are really intel operations, with some particular focus on the JFK assassination.

This site of Lavenda's looks interesting, though I have not checked it out in any detail, nor have I "vetted" Lavenda in general, I can only comment on the interview.
