Summary
"Why Secret Intelligence Fails provides a frank discussion of the problems of the American intelligence community. While examining the causes of intelligence failures, the book also explores how the intelligence community functions, making it an excellent primer on secret intelligence. Rather than focusing on case studies, the book takes a holistic approach, beginning with structural issues and all the dysfunctions that emanate from them. Michael Turner explores each step of the intelligence cycle - priority setting, intelligence collection, analysis, production, and dissemination - to identify the "inflection points" within each stage that contribute to intelligence failures. Finally, he examines a variety of plans that, if implemented, would improve American intelligence."--Jacket
