Leonard Lopate at Large: John Murphy and Michael Reitner

Today on Leonard Lopate at Large, John Murphy and Michael Reitner discuss their important documentary “Agents Unknown.”

John Murphy has a story to tell. An elite adviser, analyst, and operative for the Army, CIA and South Vietnamese intelligence services, John experienced the Vietnam War up close and behind close doors in a way that few people did.


Michael Reitner’s documentary “Agents Unknown” is the first in-depth look into John’s role in this untold bit of US military history. It’s a story of intelligence work at the ground level: espionage, agents and bad information working its way through the war machine, leading to the epic failures of command that made the human cost of the Vietnam War much greater.
