BROOKINGS — Retired CIA agent Tony Mendez, who masterminded one of the most daring hostage rescue missions in history, will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Performing Arts Center on the South Dakota State University campus. Tony Mendez spent 25 years with the Central Intelligence Agency. By the time he retired in 1990, he was the equivalent of a two-star general. After spending his career undercover, he became a public figure when his book, “Argo,” was turned into an Academy Award-winning movie in 2012.
