FACT & FILM SERIES: “ARGO: The Iranian Hostage Crisis and the Canadian Caper, A Review of America’s First Battle in the War against Radical Islamic Terror,” w/ Tony Mendez, Former CIA Technical Operations Officer and Jonna Mendez, Former CIA Chief of Disguise  

When the CIA needed a cover story to extract six Americans from Iran during the 1979-80 hostage crisis, Tony Mendez devised a scheme that involved a crew scouting for a movie called “ARGO.” Tony Mendez’s career with the CIA spanned twenty-five years as he worked undercover as Chief of Disguise and later as the Chief of the Graphics and Authentication Division. In 1980, he was awarded the Intelligence Star for Valor. Jonna Mendez served 27 years with the CIA and retired as Chief of Disguise. In Mendez’s multimedia presentation, they will share personal stories, including some aspects of the crisis never before publicly released.

The film, “ARGO,” will be shown following Mendez’s presentation.
