Yet another frightening, exhaustively-researched history from Tim Weiner. Where the CIA comes across as devastatingly incompetent and utterly callous, the FBI comes across as frighteningly competent and powerful, at least in its middle years under J. Edgar Hoover. Abuses of power are rampant in the pages of this book, with Richard Nixon simply being the most obvious example.

Read this, and realize just how little the U.S. deserves its self-proclaimed reputation as a worldwide champion of freedom and equality.
