Broken: The Troubled Past and Uncertain Future of the FBI
Richard Gid Powers (au)
The FBI’s original mission -- the investigation & prosecution of only the most serious crimes against the U.S. -- was forsaken almost from the beginning. There has been a long history of political pressure, both from within & without. This scandal-ridden path culminated in a 25-year run-up to 9/11 in which predictable & preventable lapses became hopelessly entrenched. Here, Powers offers a definitive & provocative study of the Bureau from its origins to the present. He unearths stories behind some of the most famous cases & characters in our history. He gives the Bureau its due for many triumphs. Nonetheless, his story features an astonishing range of political abuses, misdirected invest’s., skewed priorities, & sheer intelligence failures.
