Annie Jacobsen: ‘The Secret History of the CIA’

When diplomacy fails and war is unwise, the president calls on the CIA’s Special Activities Division, a highly-classified branch of the CIA and the most effective black operations force in the world. Almost every American president since World War II has asked the CIA to conduct sabotage, subversion, and even assassination. To unveil the secret world of the president’s guerrilla warfare corps, Pulitzer Prize finalist Annie Jacobsen takes the stage with excerpts from “Surprise, Kill, Vanish,” her thriller-like exposition of the world of paramilitary and intelligence work. The subject would certainly make for dramatic material as a documentary or even as a dramatic movie. From Ed Mays.
