Though much has been written about the machinations of the
Bush Administration and the recent failures of the Central
Intelligence Agency, there is still a great deal of
information that remains unknown to the American public. In
this eye-opening new book, former CIA division chief Tyler
Drumheller explores the gradual erosion of the agency's
independence over the past 30 years, witnessing its decline
through the prism of his own experiences.
A dedicated intelligence professional, Drumheller worked for
several administrations, from Ronald Reagan to George W.
Bush, rising through the ranks to become head of the
agency's European division. From that privileged position he
watched with growing dismay as the CIA descended into

powerbrokers used the agency to achieve their own political
At Langley, Drumheller had a front row seat alongside Dick
Cheney, Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell, and George Tenet. As
only a few insiders can, he offers first-hand insight into
the agency's relationship with the Bush Administration,
sheds new light on how America propelled itself into war
with Iraq, and explains how it has had a detrimental effect
on our abilities to defend ourselves.
