Dulles was born in a famous family.

in the hall of CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, there is a marble statue of former US intelligence chief Alan Dulles, engraved with: his great achievements will accompany us. Recently, Petraeus resigned from the post of director of the CIA due to extramarital affairs. In fact, compared with his predecessor Dulles, who has the title of “father of the CIA”, what he did was nothing more than a small Witch. Dulles, who loves flirting, even set a record of “having had 100 extramarital affairs”.

Clough is shy and introverted, while Dulles is handsome and charming. He is an expert at seducing women.

in the 1920s and 1930s, Dulles and his brother partnered to open a law firm on Wall Street. Due to work needs, he often went abroad on business trips. From Dulles’s letter to his wife, we can see that he is not alone. In a letter, he wrote: “I brought back a plain but attractive Irish and French hybrid woman tonight and stayed until early morning.” Another time, his date was “a beautiful British woman. We danced and drank champagne until late”. He even wrote, “Mrs. Powell is the only one who can be your rival in love. She not only has funny conversation, sharp thinking, erudition, but also has beautiful appearance…

her husband’s affair made Kraft very painful, but introverted she finally chose tolerance and tolerance, and let Dulles tell her these romantic details. Because of his love for his wife and gentlemanly demeanor, Dulles never concealed the fact of marriage from anyone. He even told his wife in a letter: “I have a good wife, but I don’t deserve it, because I like to have other women with me.”.

Dulles had an official mistress since 1942. That year, he joined the US Strategic Intelligence Agency (the predecessor of the CIA) and was soon sent to Switzerland. His public identity was “special assistant to the ambassador”, code named “110”. In early December, Mary Bancroft was introduced to Dulles. This is an American woman full of rebellious spirit. Her stepgrandfather is Byron, publisher of the Wall Street Journal. Because her husband is often absent, Mary is willing to “try some exciting work”.

the two talked very well. Dulles hoped Mary would help him write some political analysis articles. A few days later, while walking by the Lake Zurich, Dulles asked in a straightforward pun close to shameless: “let’s cover romance with work and cover work with romance.” Later, Mary wrote in her memoir: “I admired his ability very much and fell completely in love.”.

Dulles and Mary achieved a high degree of harmony between work and love. Every morning, he would call her on time and tell her what report to translate. In order to cover people’s eyes and ears, they try to speak American slang when talking. Every week, she would take a train from Zurich to Bern, stay in a cheap hotel opposite the railway station, and then take a taxi to his comfortable home. During the day, they prepared the report together and spent the night together.

after World War II, kraft came to Switzerland to reunite with Dulles. She knew the relationship between them, but she didn’t interfere. “I can see that you and Alan care about each other. I approve you.” The wife even said that to “little three”. Since then, it is more difficult for two people to become “best friends”. Mary is also the only woman accepted by Dulles family members and became Kraft’s lifelong friend.

in 1953, Dulles, 60, took the post of director of the CIA. In fact, when the CIA was established under the National Security Act of the United States in 1947, Dulles put forward many suggestions on the formulation of the act and the functions of the CIA. In the past few years, the CIA was immature in all aspects. After taking over for nine years, Dulles personally trained it from a “child” to an “adult” and branded the agency so that it was recognized as the “father of the CIA”. Someone even said, “the CIA is Alan Dulles, and Alan Dulles is the CIA.”

at this time, Dulles was in his 60s, but he was still an expert in “beauty hunting”. Claire Luce, a socialite and U.S. ambassador to Italy, was one of his lovers. However, it is said that his relationship with Claire is more of a Platonic love, not as intimate as with other lovers. Dulles likes to be accompanied by a woman with sharp words and unique opinions like Claire. Whenever he passes through Rome, Claire always tries to accompany him. Interestingly, Claire’s husband and Time magazine owner Henry Luce didn’t seem to care about his wife’s extramarital affair because he was dating Dulles’s old lover Mary.

another object that Dulles conquered was the Greek queen frazerika. At that time, Greece was an important overseas base of the CIA, and the power of Greece was in the hands of Queen frazerika, who was the biological mother of the future king. Dulles often went to Greece for a walk when he visited overseas. He soon became familiar with the Greek royal family, and his relationship with the smart and beautiful queen naturally occurred. In the eyes of the queen, the intelligence director was not only powerful, but also charming.

in 1958, Queen frazerika took her children to the United States for sightseeing. Just at the end of the trip, she received a letter from the U.S. government inviting her to Washington as a guest out of courtesy. Without saying a word, the queen postponed her return for a week. She came to Washington for a meeting with President Eisenhower. Because there was really nothing important to say, they discussed the issue of “spiritual value” in boredom. Then she went to CIA headquarters to visit Dulles, which was incredible for ordinary CIA staff. They stayed in the office for about an hour. At this time, an assistant knocked on the door. When he didn’t hear the response, he pushed the door in and found that the room was empty, but there was a strange sound in the cloakroom next door. After a while, they came out. Finally, the distinguished queen left under the suspicious eyes of CIA staff. On the way back to the Greek embassy, the queen explained the reason why Greece must strengthen its relationship with the United States – “we love that man so much!”

at that time, it was no secret that Dulles liked to flirt, but it was rarely reported in the newspapers. In the eyes of American journalists at that time, such a thing was not worth going to the newspaper at all. And many upper class women are proud to know Dulles. When Rebecca West, a British writer living in the United States, was asked if she was “one of Dulles’s many girlfriends”, she replied, “no, but I really hope so.”. Dulles’ sister Elena once said that there were “at least 100 women” who fell in love with his brother.
