This is one of the most important books to be published in my lifetime. Don't read this if you're invested in the moral righteousness of the United States. Do read this if you want to understand the world a lot better.

The CIA is pure and pristine! They don't torture, they don't commit crimes, they don't embezzle millions and billions, they don't push drugs. No, just kidding! Several recent journalists have been investigating CIA Director John Brennan; both these journalists died under somewhat mysterious circumstances.
