When I see “the History of” something I expect the actual history of it While this book was extremely well researched some claims that were provided had only a basis in conjecture and no actual proof In addition rather than giving the actual history of the CIA the author only provides an 800 page critiue of the agency I prefer learning history that is based in fact not having a political agenda While this book was certainly interesting it was too politically biased to be enjoyable

Attention crazy people If you are one of those poor souls who thinks that the Central Intelligence Agency is reading your thoughts andor manipulating your brain waves I have good news for you You can take off your aluminum foil hat and stop trying to pull out that tooth with the tracking device Here it is The CIA is too incompetent to do any of the things you are worried about Seriously After reading Legacy of Ashes I’m amazed that we weren’t taken down by the Soviets during the Cold War or that China hasn’t invaded and turned the US into a giant sweatshop that sews cheap clothing for its citizens or that some terrorists haven’t reduced the country to pile of radioactive rubble Kind of odd timing to read a book that bashes the CIA this much shortly after Osama got his much deserved bullet to the brain but this book outlined how the CIA muffed multiple opportunities to kill him before 911 during the Clinton and W Bush years After repeated stories of just how incredibly bad the CIA is at actually collecting human intelligence it’s really not that surprising that bin Ladin had been living in a posh neighborhood for years while American forces searched caves in Afghanistan If you read something like a Tom Clancy novel you’ll get the idea that the CIA is really good at its job and that the occasional snafu like the Bay of Pigs or claiming that Ira had WMD are just aberrations Per Tim Weiner the real story is that the for the CIA the Bay of Pigs and Ira WMDs are the typical performance levels we just only hear about the really big screw ups After World War II and with the Cold War ramping up America needed an intelligence service but all Harry Truman really wanted was an agency to boil down all the information that the military and state department collected and summarize it for him daily However when a bunch of former OSS guys were put in charge their brilliant idea of an intelligence service was parachuting half trained dissidents behind the Iron Curtain to lead resistance groups and perform sabotage missions Unfortunately the people were so poorly prepared and the Soviets had already so thoroughly penetrated the Agency that they were almost all captured andor killed Oh and they completely missed the Soviets developing their own atomic bomb thanks to stolen intelligenceFrom the Korean War through Vietnam to missing the economic decay of the Soviet Union that caused it’s ultimate collapse the CIA was so consistently bad at their supposed main job of gathering intelligence that it boggles the mind Weathermen are jealous at how these guys were able to be so repeatedly and completely wrong yet somehow none of them lost their jobs over itThe only thing that CIA seems to have been really good at was backing the most evil fucks around as long as they claimed to be anti communist If there was a strong arm dictator or leader of a military coup waiting to take over from a government with the slightest bit of left leanings the CIA was there with bags of cash and support for assholes to take over countries like Iran and Guatemala and the result has been countless deaths of innocent people and the trashing of goodwill towards America in many parts of the world To be fair there’s a few parts of the book where it seems that Weiner doesn’t give them credit for the few things they did right Accurately predicating the outbreak of violence in Rwanda or running a successful operation to help convince Libya to ditch it’s WMD programs are barely mentioned And despite documenting how the CIA has bowed to political pressure and repeatedly told several presidents exactly what they wanted to hear the Irai WMD claims are portrayed almost exclusively as an intelligence failure with little mention of poltical pressure from the Bush administration which is hard to believe Overall Weiner used recently declassified internal CIA reports and histories to document a long history of spectacular failure The book explores how a combination of politics and a bureaucratic nightmare has left America deaf and blind at the times it could least afford to be so even as the myth of an all knowing intelligence agency has been perpetuated Billions upon billions of dollars have been spent trying to keep tabs on America’s enemies Frankly we all would have been better off if the US would have used that cash to buy everyone in the world some cake and ice cream every now and then At least maybe so many people wouldn’t hate us because how could you be mad at someone who gives you free cake and ice cream

Legacy of Ashes the History of the CIA?روراً بإنهيار الشيوعية أسرار التعاون الذي كان قائماً بين السيآيأيه ومنظمة التحرير الفلسطينية وتفاهمهما على عدم إستهداف الأميركيين؛ وجسر المعلومات المهمة الذي كان ممتداً على مدى أربعة أعوام بين الإستخبارات الأميركية وعلي حسن سلامة ما سبّب إغتياله على أيدي الإستخبارات الإسرائيلية وحرمان الولايات المتمحدة من أهم مصدر للمعلومات في الشرق الأوسط مخططات السيآيأيه لضرب سورية وإسقاط نظامها، وجعلها تبدو أنها هي من يرعى المؤامرات والتخريب والعنف ضد الحك?. The idea of a Central Intelligence Agency is uite a good one and I do understand why the US might want such an organisation There are lots of nations in the world and some of them have very good reason to dislike the United States they hate your freedom your freedom to bomb them into the dark ages and so it is a pretty good idea for the US to have some idea what these nations are up to Are they building weapons of mass destruction for example and if they are what for Not everyone that builds a bomb necessarily wants to drop it on an American So finding out the motivation of your potential enemies sounds like a reasonable thing to do The CIA has been uite good at times of taking photos of places other countries might not want them to take photos of but incredibly hopeless at working out whyThe US is famously described as a melting pot – that is out of many one has been made if you wrote that in Latin it could almost be a motto Anyway you would think that a nation that has been made up out of people from every other nation in the world it wouldn’t really have all that much trouble in putting together a spy network But that hasn’t really been the experience of the US over the years There are parts of this book that read like Greek tragedy My favourite is the telling of the story of the death of Kennedy For three years the CIA had been trying to kill Castro and suddenly they thought that Castro had gotten in first What to do The problem was that if it came out that the CIA had been trying to kill Castro then people might think Castro was within his rights to strike first So the CIA tried to cover up what it had been planning which meant having to lie to the Warren Commission Conspiracy theories are all very well but you don't need a conspiracy when straight history is this bizarreThe image that you get of the CIA from this book is mostly one of complete incompetence Essentially it is an organisation that knew virtually nothing about what was going on in the Soviet Union nothing at all about North Korea nothing about Iran and certainly less than nothing about Ira I was really surprised at how many Presidents simply didn’t pay any attention to the advice the CIA gave In fact I was surprised to learn that most Republican Presidents felt the CIA was part of a leftwing conspiracy against them That is pretty much the exact opposite of what I would have thought myselfThere is instance after instance of uotes of advice given by the CIA to Presidents saying for example that there will be no war in Korea in the week the war started or Iran will be much as it is for 20 years as the Iranian revolution was starting or that Ira had weapons of mass destruction before the US launched one of the most expensive wars in historyThe failures are epic and breathtaking What is even breathtaking is how no one ever seems to take responsibility for any failure You would think that someone would get a kick in the bum for the error over WMD in Ira say – but in fact the person who you would think was most responsible for it George Tennent was granted the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the country’ greatest honour You can only say that the people in power in the US have no respect for their citizens otherwise giving Tennent such an award would be impossible Being a spy not only means never having to say you are sorry but also being congratulated for your mistakesThe most disturbing thing is the most obvious thing that the CIA prefers dictatorships to democracy as is confirmed time and time again It wants the world to be predictable and democracy doesn't really do predictable This is a story that proves truth is stranger than fiction Throughout its history the CIA those in charge have constantly said that it is five years away from being able to fulfil its mission It is time to admit that tomorrow never comes and perhaps it would be better to just close the whole thing down
