bookshelves: nonfiction, politics

How an organization as inept, amoral, and bereft of tangible accomplishment as the CIA isn't a laughingstock is beyond me. More Mr. Bean than Jason Bourne, the agency's greatest achievement has been the cultivation of a reputation of competence and honor that they've done nearly nothing to earn.
