really liked it

For spy geeks like myself this book is gold, but it has to be said that it is quite niche! Who of the CIA's finest, and not so finest, has published books, and what did they say? That is interesting by itself.

But the primary concern of Moran's highly readable account of his investigations is the matter of censorship.

What soon becomes very clear is that those who portrayed negatively got censored while those who praised it didn't. It's hardly surprising. But Moran offers careful research and categorical proof that often, the protection of national security was merely a whitewash over folly, egotism and the need to protect congressional approval for budgets.
This book is fascinating for those with a concern for such things. But as ever, it provokes the age-old question of who watches the watchers?
