Abstract:

Discusses the various successes and failures of the CIA and the implications for national security if they fail.

Is the CIA a failure, a success, a muddle, or like other government agencies, all three? If the Post Office is inept, mail doesn't get delivered on time, but if the CIA fails, it could put America's national security in jeopardy. This uncensored book about a controversial subject provides some fascinating answers. Anybody who tries to form an opinion about the CIA from news stories is likely to be left with a buzz in his head, for the real CIA, as is demonstrated in this book, is an information-gathering organization that has performed some of its tasks far better--and some far worse--than we have imagined. And yet our very lives depend on how well the CIA does what it is supposed to do. Does the CIA foment revolution and civil unrest? Has it attempted to assassinate heads of state? Has it lied (yes), robbed (yes), and murdered (yes) in our best interests (yes and no). Here at last is hard and often fascinating information not about Smiley's people, who are fictional, but about William Casey's people, Stansfield Turner's people, George Bush's people, Allen Dulles's people, and all of it traces back, ultimately, to Wild Bill Donovan's wartime OSS, which helped win the war against the Nazis.--Adapted from dust jacket.
