Staff Reviews

Over the years I've heard many different CIA spook stories; "The CIA
created aids", "the CIA brought Crack to the ghetto", "the CIA used LSD
on prison inmates". Well as it turns out at least one of these claims is
fact (I won't say which). The CIA has a jaw dropping history, at one
point they actually studied the flight patterns of bats to see if they
could be used to bomb Tokyo. Mr. Weiner has gathered it all together
after a great deal of research and it makes for fantastic reading.

This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For the last sixty years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, never disclosing its blunders to the American public. It spun its own truth to the nation while reality lay buried in classified archives. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Tim Weiner offers a stunning indictment of the CIA, a deeply flawed organization that has never deserved Americas confidence.
