CIS STARR Forum: Top Secret America - The Rise of the New American Security State
The top-secret world that the government created in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks has become so enormous, so unwieldy, and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs or exactly how many agencies duplicate work being done elsewhere. In TOP SECRET AMERICA, award-winning reporters Dana Priest and William Arkin uncover the enormous size, shape, mission, and consequences of this "invisible universe."
About the speaker/co-author: Investigative reporter Dana Priest has been The Washington Post's intelligence, Pentagon and health-care reporter.
