characters The Spymasters: How the CIA Directors Shape History and the Future Chris Whipple ¹ 3 free read review The Spymasters: How the CIA Directors Shape History and the Future 103 From the New York Times bestselling author of The Gatekeepers a remarkable behind the scenes look at what its like to run the worlds most powerful intelligence agency and how the CIA is often a crucial counterforce against presidents threatening to overstep the powers of their officeOnly eleven men and one woman are alive today who have made the life and death decisions that come with running the worlds most powerful and influential intelligence service With unprecedented deep access to nearly all these individuals plus several of their predecessors Chris Whipple tells the story of an agency that answers to the United States president alone but whose activitiesspying espionage and covert actiontake place on every continent At pivotal moments the CIA acts as a brake on rogue presidents starting in the mid seventies with DCI Richard Helmss refusal to conceal Richard Nixons criminality and continuing to the present as the actions of a CIA whistleblower have ignited impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump Since its inception in 1947 the Central Intelligence Agency has been a powerful player on the world stage operating largely in the shadows to protect American interests For The Spymasters Whipple conducted extensive exclusive interviews with nearly every living CIA director pulling back the curtain on the worlds elite spy agencies and showing how the CIA partnersor clasheswith counterparts in Britain France Germany Israel Jordan Saudi Arabia and Russia Topics covered in the book include attempts by presidents to use the agency for their own ends; simmering problems in the Middle East and Asia; rogue nuclear threats; and cyberwarfare A revelatory behind the scenes look The Spymasters recounts seven decades of CIA activity and elicits predictions about the issues and threatsthat will engage the attention of future operatives and analysts Including eye opening interviews with George Tenet John Brennan Leon Panetta and David Petraeus as well as those whove just recently departed the agency this is a timely essential and important contribution to current events. Having spent over 25 years in the Agency I had heard most of these stories To be sure there were so new ones but few That was to be expected The surprise was the apparent bromance between the author and for DCIA Brennan Clearly Brennan was his main source and the author took in every word without a filter Much the imaged leadership and heroism that the author saw in Brennan is taking on a much different light with the release of additional classified material by former DNI Grenell and now the DOJFBI When eventually the classified documents that DCI Haspel is sitting on show a complete review of Brennan s role in Russiagate becomes public some of the facts uoted in this book will probably take on a different light In any event the author lost all distance and objectivity when writing about Brennan who received the most pages of material in the book Severely damaged what could have been a interesting book for the future
