Rate this:
This book takes some of the mystery out of the clandestine activities in the FBI and the CIA. Collard walks readers through the inception of each organization, from the FBI's small number of agents hired in 1908 to investigate federal crimes, to Harry Truman's signing of the law in 1947 to create the CIA as a way to gather intelligence after WWII. The author highlights their similarities and differences, methods of gathering information, and roles in American history, and places great emphasis on the 9/11 attacks and the changes it brought to both agencies.
