Now that I've watched Mudd on CNN, where he's their intel analyst, and read this book I have to rate them both substandard. Although not the complete loser as the present CIA director, John Brennan, whose body count rose with each higher position [chief of station, Riyadh, 19 service members killed in the Khabar Towers attack; assistant executive director on 9/11 - - many thousands killed that day], still we must acknowledge that Real News journalist [as opposed to the usual Fake Newsies], Robert Parry, EXACTLY predicted where bin Laden was to be found [www.consortiumnews.com], yet still the CIA was hopeless in this endeavor!
Just recently, CIA Director John Brennan committed the ultimate sacrilege, warning an incoming US president [Trump] to watch his words carefully - - I don't care who the incoming prez is, no CIA stooge is allowed to do that, especially not a loser like Brennan!
