Tyler Drumheller on US Intelligence by Mitch E. Perry12/19/06
Late last month WMNF began airing excerpts of our interview with Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIA covert operations in Europe.
Drumheller has written a new book, On the Brink : An Insider's Account of How the White House Compromised American Intelligence.
Drumheller makes a number of points in his book that make the Bush Administration look foolish in their search to twist intelligence to make the case for the war in Iraq..
In an excerpt never previously broadcast, WMNF asked former CIA agent Drumheller about homeland security in the U.S. and abroadâ€¦And does he believe â€“ as a recent book by an Ohio State University Professor, that the threats of terrorism on American soil are overrated (roll tape#1 o.q.â€?alternative languageâ€?)
Thatâ€™s Tyler Drumheller, from an interview WMNF conducted several weeks ago. Drumhellerâ€™s new book is called, â€œOn the Brink: An insiderâ€™s Account of How the White House Compromised American Intelligenceâ€?.
