The Spymasters: CIA in the Crosshairs

The Gist: An in-depth look at the inner workings of the CIA, featuring interviews with current and former CIA directors and operatives talking candidly about torture, targeted killings, threats to American personnel and interests, and what needs to or should be done to keep us safe.

The Spymasters: CIA in the Crosshairs is an excellent documentary that everyone should watch. It clearly defines the kinds of threats that are out there and why the CIA does what it does.

I actually couldn't believe how openly and frankly the people interviewed were talking about all the intelligence and operations that are usually kept behind a thick wall of secrecy.

The Bottom Line: This is a must-see for everyone. Regardless of what you think about American interventionism this is an eye-opener and perfectly crystallizes the reality of the threats that are out there, not just in the Middle East but all over the world, and not just for the US but for western democracies at large.
