The intelligence community is deeply invested in shades of truth and untruth, the known and the unknown. It has inspired generations of writers and moviemakers and we can’t seem to get enough details about this ancient art. We connect a security news analyst with an espionage thriller author for a fresh look at the intelligence community - real and imagined.
