Former CIA Officers Speak to McLean Woman’s Club
about 1980 Rescue of Iran Hostages and Resulting
Retired CIA officer Tony Mendez, who in 1980
engineered the rescue of six American diplomats in
Iran, recounted, together with his wife Jonna, the
details of the rescue at the November 4th meeting of
the McLean Woman’s Club. They also described their
part in the making of the 2012 award-winning U.S.
movie “Argo,” which was based on the operation.
Before and after the talk, the Mendezes, both former
operations officers and disguise specialists, signed
and sold copies of two of their three books,
including “Argo,” which describes the 1980 events.
