CIA, Secret Wars

Wednesdays at 8:30pm AEST from August 16

This three-part documentary series takes an in-depth look at the anatomy and functioning of the CIA, its failures (the Bay of Pigs, the Watergate Scandal) and its chronic shortsightedness (inability to foresee the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism, the fall of the USSR, or the Sept. 11th attacks).

The film identifies and dissects the CIA’s true power base and gives us a rare inside glimpse at the inner workings of the US intelligence agency and American government.
