Finally, the CIA Gets It Right (washingtonpost.com)
The whole article needs reading but suffice to say if the American populace actually realized how badly screwed we are....Finally, the CIA Gets It Right (washingtonpost.com): "For those Americans who had begun to doubt whether the Central Intelligence Agency could produce good analysis, Imperial Hubris clearly demonstrates otherwise. It is a powerful, persuasive analysis of the terrorist threat and the Bush administration's failed efforts to fight it. The CIA carefully vetted the book to ensure that no 'sources and methods' were exposed, but the anonymous author -- a current CIA official -- draws effectively on the years he's spent carefully studying detailed intelligence reports from several U.S. and many foreign spy agencies. His criticism is damning."
