President Harry Truman created the CIA in 1947 to collect and analyze intelligence, and not to conduct “cloak and dagger” operations. By 1963, Truman said that he “wouldn’t have created the CIA if I knew then what I know now.” Melvin Goodman, a former CIA intelligence analyst, will discuss the operational and analytical successes and failures of the CIA over the past 70 years, and will describe what went wrong and how to fix it. He will give special attention to the problem of the politicization of intelligence under President Donald Trump and CIA director Mike Pompeo.

The event is finished.
