After former CIA director George Tenet's book, many people are questioning their conventional wisdom about the CIA. The truth is, it is now time for serious intelligence reform. Failure of Intelligence examines the CIA's recent failures and distorting of information for political means, and suggests an effective reform agenda. The author's reform ideas are informed by his extensive experience in the CIA as well as input from former CIA directors.
