James Bamford – The Shadow Factory

Bamford reveals the inner workings of the NSA and its surveillance programs, describes how the FVEY governments share intelligence, and explains in forensic detail how the 9/11 hijackers managed to fall through the cracks due to poor information-sharing between various parts of the federal government.
