That Time the Soviets Bugged Congress, and Other Spy Tales

| May 22, 2017

"It is arguably one matter to spy on colonial delegations, but quite another to bug the president of the United States. Could the Russians have done it?

America's Leaker-in-chief: Trump and Russia

| May 19, 2017

Trump Risks Making Stalin's Disastrous Mistake On Intelligence Analysis

"A leader who accesses raw intelligence risks short-circuiting this entire enterprise, bypassing agencies that are supposed to prevent partial assessments. An inevitable risk is that a decision-maker with access to raw data that has not been professionally assessed will look for information that confirms his or her preexisting beliefs. Far from intelligence agencies telling leaders what they do not want to hear, in these circumstances, intelligence risks becoming self-fulfilling sycophancy."
