As details of programs like Penny Lane and GRS tumble out into the open, shedding light on how the CIA has fought its secret war, it is becoming clearer that the full story of the Agency's failures, and the larger failures of U.S. intelligence has yet to be told.
One of the reasons why the Kennedy assassination continues to affect millions of people the way it does, even fifty years later, is the sense that we are still fighting the same battle today.
