Can you lainons recommend any books on the NSA, CIA or the Intelligence Community in general?


Top Secret America is nice (I forget the authors). Talks about top secret parts of the government (pre-snowden, might I add) that people have dug up over time. Interesting read if you'd like to know about the national security state before snowden. The only other one I've read are "Nowhere To Hide" by Glenn Greenwald and that was kinda eh in my opinion. Essentially a more verbose explaination of the Snowden fiaso as opposed to Citizenfour.

Why read books on the topic when you can read declassified documents from those same spy agencies
(taking what is said in them with tad bit of salt)


Could you link to any sites that have such material?


wikileaks is the first one that comes to mind for me.


It aint a book but showtimes documentary. "Spymasters CIA in the Crosshairs" like holy soykaf dude it's a mix between like yeah we need to fuarrrk up some terrorists to like my government tortures and assassinates people whenever they want to.


"Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA" by Tim Weiner was pretty good. It's a little dated at this point, and somewhat dense, but a good place to start.
