Episode 458: World War II and the Rise of American Intelligence

9/14/2022
In the United States, a highly organized intelligence system did not exist before World War II. Our geographic isolation meant spying on our enemies or our allies was a relatively rare, often haphazard undertaking. But as Nicholas Reynolds details in his new book, “Need to Know: World War II and the Rise of American Intelligence”, that national restraint gave way during the war to an extraordinary intricate web of spying which, postwar, would grow into our modern intelligence machine. Newt’s...

But by the time the truth came out, it was too late. There had already been casualties. One of the highest profile casualties was Paul...
