Intelligence Matters

CBS News

Former acting Director of the CIA Michael Morell speaks with top leaders of the U.S. intelligence community as they reflect on their life, career and the critical roles they play in shaping national security policies. As a central figure in the most significant U.S. counter-terror efforts of the past two decades and a former CIA intelligence analyst, Morell is uniquely skilled at taking industry leading knowledge to make connections that provide deep insight into complex security events – helping decode intelligence officials’ key priorities and providing perspectives on how to achieve national security objectives. Morell is the author of “The Great War of Our Time” and a vivid account of the Central Intelligence Agency, a life in secrets, and a war in the shadows.

  • Liar, fraud, & spreader of disinformation

    This is the same guy that said Hunter Bidens laptop was Russian Disinformation when he knew it was not. He has no issue with lying to the American public if it helps the Democratic Party.

  • Whitewashing makes for arduous listening

    There is some genuinely useful info to be learned from these guests. But the bias towards explaining every aspect of the ICs GWOT policies for posterity is tiring. That era will go down in history as a failure and subsequent overreaction for the IC and US foreign policy. Deal with it. We are currently in a moment where global rules are being/should be rewritten ESPECIALLY regarding the internet and data policy. This podcast would do well to focus on the future because you know the IC is.
