Gen. Joseph Carroll upon his nomination to first director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). In the early Cold War years following World War II, the U.S. feared a sudden Soviet invasion and occupation of Alaska, and recruited and trained Alaskan fishermen, bush pilots, trappers and other private citizens for a covert intelligence network in support of military commanders, according to declassified Air Force and FBI documents. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover teamed up on the secret project, code-named "Washtub", with the newly created Air Force Office of Special Investigations, first headed by then Hoover protege and former FBI official Joseph Carroll. This was not civil defense of the sort that became common later in the Cold War as Americans built their own bomb shelters. This was an extraordinary enlistment of civilians as intelligence operatives on U.S. soil. (AP Photo/Defense Intelligence Agency)
