Don’t mention what Budiansky says about American intel, on page 306 of Code Warriors.
Here it is . . .
American intelligence structure with its perpetual internal bureaucratic warfare tangled lines of authority and wasteful inefficiency and duplication, but it probably also was an admission that even in helping to obtain the victory of containment over Soviet Communism the intelligence agencies have often failed spectacularly at crucial moments, and had left in their wake an often sordid trail of transgressions against law, morality, decency, and basic American values.
