By Robert David STEELE Vivas HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 8, 2000
Format: Hardcover
"You see, the way a free government works, there's got to be a housecleaning every now and then." Harry Truman, as cited on the first page of the book. Well, in the U.S. Government, before you get a real housecleaning, it appears you have to build the vacuum cleaner from scratch every few years, and even then you only get the big dirt on the margins. This book is a very important book with all the more value today as we finally get serious about intelligence reform. Loch's professional and extraordinarily detailed account of the entire Church Committee investigation, its findings, White House attempts to avoid reform, and the rather bland outcomes that finally resulted, should be considered the key to understanding where we are today and why we so desperately need legislation to achieve substantive reform. Had Senator Church been chosen by Jimmy Carter as Vice President (Church was favored by the convention, with Mondale and Stevenson tied behind him), who knows what good might have come of his White House service.

Format: Paperback
The Church Committee weakened the CIA to the point that the Central Intelligence Agency was no longer central, nor intelligence. It bacame just an agency. And that' why the US has suffered a series of gross intelligence failures from the inability to predict the Iranian revolution to the Arab Spring.
