When President Truman left office he did not move into a mansion in
Washington, D.C. He moved back in to his wife's family house with his
mother-in-law. One thing the
plain-speaking humble former President was clear about, however, was
regret over his role in the formation of the Central Intelligence
Agency. There is no way he could have known at the time what an
anti-American nightmare his creation would become in our days. Truman
was right to regret it.
