From Nick Bryant:
I’m aware that it’s mysteriously taken a couple of years to cough up a McCord obit. McCord was a bible thumper, but he played an integral role in the CIA’s sexual blackmail operations with some very unsavory individuals. He was interesting in the respect that he was a religious zealot who wasn’t a sexual deviant. He considered the Red Menace to be the spawn of Satan and the ends justified the means. He was a truly scary dude.
