Tim Weiner discusses his new book, Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA. The agency's failures have handed us, in the words of President Eisenhower “a legacy of ashes.” Legacy of Ashes is based on more than 50,000 documents, primarily from the archives of the CIA itself, and hundreds of interviews with CIA veterans, including 10 Directors of Central Intelligence. Tim Weiner is a reporter for The New York Times. He has written on American intelligence for 20 years, and won the Pulitzer Prize for his work on secret national security programs. He has traveled to Afghanistan and other nations to investigate CIA covert operations firsthand. This is his third book.
