Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA - Tim Weiner - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Legacy of Ashes:

The secrets of the US's secret organization to find the secrets of other countries.

My favorite Tim Weiner quote from the book:

"Intelligence fails because it is human, no stronger than the power of one mind to understand another."


Questions to ponder while reading Legacy of Ashes:

Do you believe that covert action is necessary?

Who should the CIA report to?

My thoughts about Legacy of Ashes:

This book made me angry because:

I now question the cost of this agency.

I now question the effectiveness of this agency.

I now question the purpose of this agency.
