Obviously you haven't even read his books or you would've noticed how searingly dangerous they are to CIA, NSC, and Pentagon.
Funny how they've survived without a scratch, then, isn't it?
Actually, his first 1973 printing of 'The Secret Team' was largely disappeared. Suppressed. Not exactly "survived without a scratch."
I was fortunate to find a 1973 edition, nevermind signed by Prouty and dedicated to an important watchdog against CIA abuses.
Here's a book dealer's blurb-

The author was the liason officer between the CIA and the military during the 50's and 60's. As an air force officer (Colonel) , he was excempt from taking the CIA oath of secrecy and therefore was in a position to write the book in 1973. Apparently, shortly after the book's publication, almost all copies disappeared, probably bought up by the CIA. I was lucky to find a copy, published in Taiwan (Imperial Books & Records) , in a used bookstore several years ago. The author details not only how the CIA conducts it's operations, but more importantly, how it manages to keep most or all of it's deeds from the eyes of congress, the population and even the President, if necessary. This is the best book I've read on the secret workings of the CIA and it's misdeeds during the 50' and early 60's. Not to belittle them, but The Secret Team is a far more informative book than Marchetti and Marks' The CIA And The Cult Of Intelligence.
Same thing happened to Deborah Davis' 1979 book on Katherine Graham
which outed the CIA's Operation Mockingbird. Only it was recalled and burned.
Chip CIA Berlet has put mucho merde on Prouty with big fat stinking lies which you've swallowed hook line and sinker. Other disinfoteers have also done 'attack the messenger to kill the message' hit on Prouty with distortions and lies.
I think you should actually read Prouty before you post anymore about him.
You aren't making any sense and you're better than that.
