David Ignatius – The Director

The Washington Post‘s prize winning columnist David Ignatius has maintained a successful career as a novelist, and his latest effort, The Director, adds to his stature as one of  America’s foremost authorities on intelligence gathering. The book is particularly timely in light of the Edward Snowden episode, and Ignatius expands on how much information the CIA is capable of collecting and potentially misusing. He also separates truth from fiction, maintaining that everything he writes is possible and plausible in the current environment. A penetrating look into the dark side of those charged with protecting our nation and what needs to be changed for our intelligence services to function more efficiently while remaining in line with our professed moral codes.
