the darker side

There is a book on the life of Allen Dulles that speaks to Eisenhower, and his legacy, with force: David Talbot's "The Devil's Chessboard". What I'm asking about those three days before ending his service is whether he could have admitted his own guilt in creating the monster CIA and black ops that Talbot describes in his book. Was there an arrangement to place clandestine CIA offices around the world? Was Guatemala's fall from democracy something that Eisenhower could have confessed to have been party to? There is a suggestion that Ike was a president of peace who is about to turn the president's office over to a hawk, when history tells a different story. His final speech needs to have a far better, more confessional tone.
