Andrew Roth

Andrew Roth was the chief researcher for the Institute of Pacific Relations publication, Amerasia, was a KGB operative, and served in the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) during World War II.

When Roth entered the U.S. Navy, some question had been raised because he was reported to be a Communist. But Naval Intelligence held that "the fact that a man was a Communist was not a bar since we were at peace with Russia." Roth was given a lieutenant's commission and assigned to Naval Intelligence as a liaison officer between the Navy and the U.S. State Department.
