Aris Pappas
will address the story and importance of
Polish Colonel Ryszard Kuklinsi


Aris Pappas will address the story and importance of Polish Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski one of the most important HUMINT relationships of the Cold War period.  Col Ryszard Kuklinski, over a period of nearly ten years, provided the US with 35,000 pages of classified Soviet and Warsaw Pact documents, plans and memos.  His story has been made into a book and a movie.  His contribution resulted in his being made an American citizen by the authority of the DCI, the first use of that authority.  Aris will talk about his motivation, his activities, and his impact.
 
Aris Pappas retired from the CIA in 2003 as a member of the Senior Intelligence Service. His CIA work centered on analysis of the Soviet military.  He was the Assistant NIO for General Purpose Forces during the first Gulf War. He later became Chief of the CIA’s Soviet Theater Forces Division. In addition to his analytic assignments, Mr. Pappas served on rotation to the FBI; attended the US Navy War College; played a key role in Continuity of Government operations post-9/11; and, worked closely with one of the CIA’s most highly regarded human sources.  He served on the DNI’s IC Strategic Studies Group and taught a post-graduate course on “Intelligence and War” at Johns Hopkins University.  He co-founded IntelligenceEnterprises, LLC where he served on the “Kerr Commission.”  Mr. Pappas later served as Senior Director of the Microsoft Institute for Advanced Technology in Governments. He is a commercial instrument rated pilot; an avid scale modeler; and is currently volunteering as a docent at the National Air & Space Museum.

Mr Pappas’ remarks will be off the record and not for attribution.
