64. 7/3/1979

“On July 3, 1979, [President Jimmy] Carter scrawled his name on a presidential ‘finding’ required under a recent law intended to ensure White House control over CIA operations. …Carter’s finding authorized the CIA to spend just over $500,000 on propaganda and psychological operations, as well as provide radio equipment, medical supplies, and cash to the Afghan rebels.”
