Summary
A CIA director offers a glimpse into the complicated relationship between the United States presidents and their CIA chiefs. The way the U.S. government gathers intelligence information has become front-page news. In this book, former CIA director Turner highlights pivotal moments between presidents and their CIA directors--detailing the decisions that continue to shape the intelligence community and our world. This behind-the-scenes look at the CIA's relationship with the presidents, from World War II to the present day, reveals how intelligence gathering works, and how personal and political issues often interfere with government business.--From publisher description
