Yep, she worked for the CIA reporting on socialist youth conference in Europe. She was also married to J. Stanley Pottinger former Attorney Genral who stonewalled the investigation into the Letelier assassination. Pottinger was also named as a figure in the Iran-Contra affair. Its rumored that Ms. magazine is a product of the CIA as well. The allegations about Pottinger can be fund in the excellent book _Death in Washington_ by Fred Landis and Donald Freed.
